Kolkata, Aug 14 : Equally keeping balance between her careers in Bollywood and Bengali film industry, actor Raima Sen keenly awaits the audience response to her portrayal in Ishq Kabhi Kariyo opposite Prateik Babbar.
“This is one of the two of my upcoming Bollywood releases. Ishq is a modern tale of extra-marital affairs. And there is a thriller element thrown in,” Raima, the Manorama Six Feet Under actor, tells IBNS on the sidelines of the Thai Luxury Spa launch here.
About her forthcoming projects in Bengal, “the base which made me rooted as an actor,” Raima lists the post-production stage flick Aby Sen by Atanu Ghosh, where she is pitted opposite Abir Chatterjee, and the untitled film by Kamaleswar Mukherjee where she shared screen space with Prosenjit Chatterjee and Paoli Dam.
Raima also starred in the award-winning Bengali film “Nirbashito”, which releases on Aug 14. She plays a key character in the film by Churni Ganguly which is inspired by the life of Taslima Nasreen, the Bangladeshi writer in exile.
“Also Kaushik Ganguly’s Bastusaap’s shooting will commence soon,” Raima, who earlier turned up in the director’s national award winner Shabdo and C/O Sir says.
The gorgeous actor advocates massaging which is good for health reasons to regularise blood circulation and for looking fitter. She prefers body polishing for glowing skin on a regular basis and yoga.”
“Unlike Mumbai and Delhi, Kolkata had fewer international spas but that concept is changing,” she says.
“I heard from Facial massage to Foot reflexology and Signature massage therapies like, Candle massage, Hot stone therapy, Aroma therapy, Deep tissue massage, Lomi Lomi massage, and many more are in the offer here. Also they do offer Aqua Spa – Body Water Jets – which we used to avail in abroad also. Looks enticing,” the Chokher Bali actor gushes about the new facility.
