Sushmita finally to be seen in a Bengali film

Not many know this but Sushmita Sen speaks fluent Bengali with her parents, and has been pining to do a Bengali film for a very long time.


She did a Bengali film, Mahesh Manjrekar’s It Was Raining That Night in 2005, a remake of the director’s Astitwa, which never got released.


More recently Sushmita was all set to star in Rupali Chatterjee’s Jodi Emon Hoto. That project is now as good as shelved.


Finally the Bengali project that Sushmita has been craving to do has materialized. One of Bangla cinema’s top directors Srijit Mukherjee who started his career with the hugely successful Bangla film Autograph and then went on to make other milestones like Hemlock Society and Jaatishwar, has signed Sushmita for his next film.


Shedding light on the project Srijit says, “It’s a film called Nirbaak (speechless). It compresses together four love stories connected by the theme of silence. The stories are intertwined and connected by Sushmita’s character.”


Besides Sushmita who features in all four stories, Nirbaak stars Jisshu Sengupta and Ritwick Chakbraborty.
