Launch of Book ‘Suchitra Sen- The Legend and the Enigma’
“I am so very glad that Shoma di took time out and researched on my late mother’s life for writing this book. I have seen many people writing about her without even doing the minimal research about her life and works. This is a book which I like and I am glad I have been called for the release of this book” said actress-MP Moonmoon Sen at the release of the book “Suchitra Sen- The Legend and the Enigma” at Starmark, Quest Mall. The book has been penned down by Shoma A Chatterji.
Also present at the book launch were Raima Sen, Riya Sen, Manoj Michigan, Abhijit Guha, Shekhar Das and other dignitaries.
“The book showcases Suchitra Sen not only as an actress but also as a working woman. In this book her gradual rise to stardom as well as her selection of roles which were quite different from the ones selected by many of her contemporaries has been mentioned. She gave us superhit films with Uttam Kumar and also gave independent hits as well. Her retirement from films also created an enigmatic aura around her. She is a legend” said Shoma A Chatterji.
Raima Sen who was hailed as the writer’s good friend from the Sen family said “I got a message from Shoma di and I came for the occasion. This book on my late grandmother will indeed make a good read for the audiences who loved her”.
Published by Harper Collins Publishers, India, the book is priced at Rs 350.
