Swati Sen, The Next Smita Patil Or Tabu?August 14th, 2010 - 11:11 pm ICT by Sampurn Wire
August 14, 2010 (Sampurn Wire): Swati Sen has just entered the Indian film industry. She has already won the Best Actress Award for her film, Sushil Rajpal’s Antardwand, which has also won the national award.
Looking at her brilliant performance, Anurag Kashyap and Imtiaz Ali have gone to the extent of calling her amongst the finest actresses around. She is already being compared to the powerhouse of performance like Smita Patil, Chitrangada, and Tabu.
Whilst Anurag Kashyap in his blog has written, “a stunning debutant from FTII acting batch called SWATI’, Imtiaz Ali has been quoted as saying “Simply Brilliant’.
But, there is a strange way in which Swati Sen got the role of the leading lady in Sushil Rajpal’s Antardwand, which is about groom abduction.
Swati is a graduate student of FTII and once she was washing her face. When she turned around she saw a lady standing behind her. Swati then said a polite and spontaneous “hi’ to this lady, not knowing who she was.
It was only when she was offered Antardwand that she realized that the lady was Shruti, the casting director for the film. Shruti asked Swati to meet Sushil Rajpal, who was incidentally visiting FTII for casting for the film. When Swati met him he wanted to check out her work. Incidentally at that time Swati was dubbing for a diploma film. She showed the rushes to Rajpal and the rest is history.
Has Bollywood discovered another “gem’ from the hallowed portal of FTII?
