December 6, 2010 : Bengali actress Rituparna Sengupta, who is now shooting for Prabhat Roy’s next venture ‘Bhorer Alo’ has found a new friend on the sets. This new friend is the film’s costume designer Masaba, daughter of renowned actress Neena Gupta and former West Indies cricketer Vivian Richards.
Masaba, who is debuting in the industry as a costume designer with this film, has become very close to Rituparna and along with the film’s producer Vaishali Dalmiya, they get along like a house on fire. According to the actress, Masaba and Vaishali are childhood friends and they have common cricket connection as their fathers are directly linked to the game.
Rituparna says that three of them are Scorpios and thus have common interest too. The actress is a self claimed admirer of Masaba’s mom veteran actress Neena Gupta and she is looking forward to meet her when Neena comes down for shooting in December.
The cast and crew of the film had a blast at a restaurant in Kolkata recently when they had lunch together. Rituparna says that she discusses a little on cricket with Masaba but most of the time they keep talking about Neena. Rituparna is a fan of Neena’s serial ‘Saans’, which used to be aired in 1999.
We can expect a cameo of Neena Gupta in the film considering Rituparna’s admiration and her daughter being a part of the project.
