MUMBAI: National awardee Rituparna Sengupta has signed Ashwin Choudhery’s Gurudakshina opposite Sunny Deol.
The actress has also signed Mahendra Dhariwal’s new international production, which will be directed by Kalpana Lajmi. The film also stars Isha Koppikar.
“In Kalpana Lajmi’s woman centric film, I play the role of a queen, whilst Isha Koppikar plays the role of a courtesan,” says Sengupta.
When asked about her transition from Bangla cinema to Bollywood, Sengupta says, “I have not come to Bollywood to act in run of the mill films. In the last one year, I have signed six Hindi films, all distinct from each other.”
