Not just me, Raveena too has bold scenes’

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Time Out - Na­banita Das

She is an ac­claimed ac­tor in her own right, and is also the wife of Ben­gali cin­ema’s cur­rent undis­puted top ac­tor, Prosen­jit Chat­ter­jee. And ac­tor Ar­pita Chat­ter­jee (above) is all set to make a siz­zling de­but in Bol­ly­wood with Onir’s next film Shab, where she has re­port­edly gone top­less. Ask her about the bold scenes and she re­torts, “I don’t know how the media in­ter­prets a bold scene. But, bar­ring that, yes there are a cou­ple of scenes. But that’s not only with me, there’s Raveena (Tan­don) as well.”

The 43-year-old, who is an es­tab­lished name in the Ben­gal film in­dus­try, de­cided to be­gin from the scratch in Bol­ly­wood. Ask her what prompted her to take such as de­ci­sion and she says, “I didn’t have a ca­reer road map and I did not know that I would join Bol­ly­wood now. BEN­GALI AC­TOR AR­PITA CHAT­TER­JEE HAS AP­PAR­ENTLY GONE TOP­LESS IN HER BOL­LY­WOOD DE­BUT IN ONIR’S FILM But, I feel that if some­thing great comes your way, you should em­brace it.”

Ask her about her ex­pe­ri­ences of work­ing with Raveen and she gushes, “Most peo­ple don’t know that I have worked with Raveena be­fore. She de­buted in the Ben­gali film in­dus­try with me in the film Lab­o­ra­tory (2010) on a story based on Tagore’s novel. As luck would have it, my Bol­ly­wood de­but is with her. As a per­son, she is re­ally cool. With her around, you don’t feel any kind of pres­sure.”
