Bol­ly­wood ac­tor Konkona Sen Sharma (above), who will be seen play­ing the role of free­dom fighter Gaur Hari Das’s wife in his biopic, says that she did a lot of re­search for the role. The ac­tor adds that the re­search in­volved go­ing and meet­ing Das’s wife Laxmi, who helped her un­der­stand the nu­ances of the role. The ac­tor was so grate­ful for the help that she bought some­thing spe­cial for Laxmi.

“Konkona got a lot of in­spi­ra­tion from Laxmi and wanted to do some­thing spe­cial for her. She has spe­cially pur­chased a sari from her home­town Kolkata. It’s a peach and white au­then­tic Ben­gali sari,” says a source.

Talk­ing about the ex­pe­ri­ence, Konkona says, “I trou­bled Ms Das a lot. I lit­er­ally stayed with them for over 40 days and they treated me just like their daugh­ter. This is just a small way to thank them for the in­spi­ra­tion I got from them and also the love they show­ered dur­ing my stay.”
