The actress who made a mark with her role in the recently released Bengali Film Chirodini Tumi Je Amar 2 is gearing up for her next release Britto. Ena talks about her character in the film and her expectations from herself in a casual chat with Sholoana Bangaliana correspondent Priyanka Dutta. Excerpts…
Priyanka Dutta, Sholoana Bangaliana– You were literally ruling the small screen before diving into films; what brought about the decision to shift and in this small time span how did Britto come about?
Ena Saha– I was doing a lot of serials at the time when the offers for film started to come. Initially I could not do it as time clashed or the directors did not allow me to do films. However I got selected for Raj Chakraborty’s Bojhena Se Bojhena film. Then Chirodini Tumi Je Amar 2 happened. It was during the promotions for Chirodini Tumi Je Amar 2 that I was doing the shooting for Britto.
Priyanka Dutta, Sholoana Bangaliana– You moved from television to films. How is the experience of working in the two mediums?
Ena Saha– Frankly, I have had a great time working in television and I am also having a great time working in films. I love both the mediums.
Priyanka Dutta, Sholoana Bangaliana– Now that you are totally into films, what kind of projects would you agree to work in television again if offers came by?
Ena Saha– Well, an interesting project will be surely something that I will be taking up. I do not have any such special criteria in my mind for the selection of the project. The only criterion is that the project has to be interesting.
Priyanka Dutta, Sholoana Bangaliana– Tell us something about the character you play in Britto.
Ena Saha– I play the role of Mrittika who is a girl in her early twenties hailing from a lower middle class background. Despite her young age, she is mature. She always wants to move forward and when her husband Rony is unable to take the responsibility of the family, she carries the responsibility on her shoulders.
Priyanka Dutta, Sholoana Bangaliana– Can you at all identify with Mrittika?
Ena Saha– There is no similarity actually. I am immature and confused. But the character that I play in the film is matured. She can take any decision instantly and this is something that I just cannot do.
Priyanka Dutta, Sholoana Bangaliana– Why did you take up this role?
Ena Saha– I have always been projected as a sweet, bubbly girl and this has now become something very obvious. So when this role was offered to me, I took it up as a challenge to see how well can I do some serious and matured stuff.
Priyanka Dutta, Sholoana Bangaliana– How was the experience of working with Vikram and Joy?
Ena Saha– Vikram, though completely mad to the power of infinity is a darling and a great co-artist who has supported me throughout the shoot of the film.
And for Joy da, he never behaved like a senior. He had gelled with so well and not for a single moment did he ever try to throw his weight around and intimidate us.
Priyanka Dutta, Sholoana Bangaliana– You were highly appreciated for your role in Chirodini Tumi Je Amar 2 and your past performances has obviously raised the expectations of the audience. How do you think will the film do at the box office?
Ena Saha– I am under a lot of pressure and stress at the moment. I just hope that people will appreciate our efforts as we all have worked very hard for the film. I have already been getting wonderful responses from people via messages after the trailer launch and I just hope they like the film in a similar manner.
Britto releases on the 5th of September, 2014. Sholoana Bangaliana wishes Ena and the team of Britto all the Very Best and Hopes that the film will become a landmark, both in Ena’s career as well as the Bengali Film Industry.
