If you guys are thinking where the hell is Bollywood hottie Riya Sen theses days… here is the answer for you.
Riya is currently shooting for a Rituparno Ghosh movie called Nauka Dubi in Shantiniketan, a place in Bengal, where her grand-mother and actress Suchitra Sen had studied.
The best part is that she has the company of her sister Raima over there who is also playing a role in the movie.
The movie is reportedly being re-made by the legendary director after he took the script of a similar movie once made in 1946 by Nitin Bose. It is based on the issue of wife swapping and a novel written by Noble medalist Rabindranath Tagore.
The story is about a man Ramesh who is in love with a girl named Hemnalini and he agrees to get into a marriage on the suggestion of his parents without even knowing and looking at the girl. During the marriage function, the village where the marriage is being held get flooded with water from the nearby river and Hemnalini is declared dead. Later, Ramesh marries a widow Kamla, who’s husband is later found alive.
The movie will also have Priyanshu Chatterjee and Jishu Sengupta starring alongside the Sen sisters.
Riya is also working on another movie, a short film being made by the students of Subhash Ghai’s ‘Whistling Woods Academy’. The buzz was about how she was suffering from almost 102 degrees fever recently.
Her forthcoming movies include Heroes, Love Khichdi, Paying Guest, Zor Lagaaa Ke Haiya and Chargesheet. She also walked the ramp for a fashion show by Indian designer Ritu Kumar recently, looking quite exotic in a traditional Lehenga.
Surely, it’s a busy time for her to be in the limelight and attend social functions!
