Interview: Actress Sauriti Banerjee Jha on playing Lilaboti in Nagleela Aired on Colors Bangla; Sholoana Bangaliana Exclusive


After having done a couple of modeling assignments, actress Sauriti Banerjee Jha came into the limelight with her performance as Isha in the serial Thik Jeno Love Story. The actress is now portraying the role of Lilaboti in the serial Nagleela, shown on Colors Bangla. Sholoana Bangaliana correspondent caught up with the actress in between shots.

Priyanka Dutta, Sholoana Bangaliana- Tell us something about Lilaboti, the character you play in Nagleela.

Sauriti- I am a princess and I am the only daughter in my family. The way my parents have brought me up has made me very self reliant. I am a brave warrior who cannot be defeated even by the most talented male warriors in the kingdom. There is a conflict in my character as I turn into a snake (Nageen). I may take it as a negative trait or as a positive trait. To know that one will have to keep watching Nagleela.

How have you prepared yourself for this role of a Nageen? Your way of speaking and your style of walking are also quite different!!

Sauriti- True!! Workshops were conducted so as to help us out with these issues like how will we walk and how will we speak. That has helped and eased out a lot of issues. As far as my acting is concerned I have watched all the Nageen films acted by Sridevi. I am her fan and that has been a great guide for me.

So, what did you actually learn after watching Sridevi’s films?

Sauriti- (smiles) As a negative character, your eyes should do all the talking. I have watched her movies and have concentrated on the way she has used her eyes to emote. That is important. I am trying to learn from her and then improvise it in my own way.


What made you select this character after portraying Isha?

Sauriti- The positive character that I played before had no shades to explore. It was a very linear character. But when I was offered Lilaboti, I saw I had the chance to explore and prove my merit as an actress, which is important. That is why I selected this role.

Your costume is different. I guess it takes a lot of time to become Lilaboti?

Sauriti- You are absolutely correct!! It takes about two hours to become Lilaboti. However, despite the time it needs, I will add that the costume is extremely elegant. Getting in the costume gives me a princess like feeling (laughs). The tattoo is the most difficult thing. It takes a lot of time to dry. I have the maximum tattoo and hence getting it done is a painstaking job indeed. But still I am all excited!!

So do you have any plans of working in Bengali films next?

Sauriti- Right now, I am too busy with Nagleela. If I get a good script, I will surely think about it.

A number of serials are being made on these topics both in Hindi (serial Nageen) and Bengali television. Are you feeling any extra pressure?

Sauriti- Yes, there is a lot of pressure on me as the audiences have seen me in a positive character before. Now I am doing a negative character. Let me see whether I am able to break the ice. Moreover, there are a lot of serials being made on these topics. So it is important to see that my portrayal do not match with the ones done by the other actresses. Keeping my fingers crossed!!

We hope that Sauriti is successful in her attempts and achieves as much success as she got when she portrayed a positive character earlier!! Way to go girl!!

Once she saw him coming she threw a jack fruit and that broke on his neck. I take this opportunity to thank her for giving me the idea of that incident for this serial” added Leena.
