Actress Raima Sen, who is doing a balancing act between Bollywood, Tollywood and digital entertainment, says she will continue working in Bengali cinema. She says working in Bengali cinema not only teaches her the craft but also gives her a chance to collaborate with great filmmakers.


“I will never stop working in Bengali films; because I have learnt a lot of things as an actor from the Bengali film industry. I am fortunate to work with some of the iconic film directors like late Rituparno Ghosh who taught me a lot,” Raima told IANS.


“I have worked with many young filmmakers in Bengal where the stories are very good, women-oriented films and very progressive interesting work...Bengali films have given me a lot,” she added.


Talking about Mehmaan, she said, “Since it is a short film, I won’t talk much about my character but I am playing a wife who is loved by her husband very much. He is ready to do anything to keep her happy. But is bizarre...how the story unveils that.”


“This year, already my film Vodka Diaries released. Two more films are in pipeline- 3 Dev and Varanasi. In 3 Dev, the casting is very interesting, it is an ensemble cast of KK Menon, Kunaal Roy Kapur, Karan Singh Grover where I am paired opposite Kunaal. Varanasi is Om Puriji’s last film. I am looking forward to both films.”
