Raima's grandma love
The indie movie star says eveyone should respect Suchitra Sen's privacy
Raima Sen feels that everyone should respect the privacy of her grandmother and legendary actress Suchitra Sen.
"She doesn't come in front of the camera nowadays. She loves to spend her life away from public sight. So I think that everyone should respect her privacy," Raima told reporters after walking the ramp at a fashion show in Kolkata.
Suchitra Sen won the National Award in 1955 and was the first Indian actress to be awarded at an international film festival in Moscow in 1963.
But since 1979 she has not appeared in public, earning her the title of India's Greta Garbo. She even reportedly refused to accept the Dadasahed Phalke Award in 2005 as she prefers to stay out of the public eye.
Raima also dismissed rumours that she is going to play her grandmother's role in an upcoming movie of Rituparno Ghosh.
"I don't want to play her role on screen. Memories of her acting are still alive in everybody's mind. People love to watch her movies even now," Raima said.
