Riya Sen, the grand-daughter of legendary Bangla actress, Suchitra Sen and younger sister of Raima Sen, has already established her position as an actor by featuring in exalted films including Abohoman and Noukadubi. And now, to widen her horizon, she is all set to appear in a Bangladesh-India joint production film. She will be appearing in Hero 420 with Bangladeshi Nusrat Faria and her compatriot, actor Om.
“When I got the proposal, I couldn’t deny it because of the nature of the production and the people I am going to work with. I couldn’t be more happy to work in a film like this,” said Riya, talking about her engagement in the film.
In the story, Riya has to don a daughter of an aristocratic and politically conscious family who is confident, fashion conscious and beyond everything, a love-enthusiast on the inside.
On November 20, the film went to the floor at a shooting spot in Kolkata while Riya joined on the first day of filming. The 34-year-old beauty is supposed to take part again in the filming in early December in, said a source from the production team.
Riya last appeared in a Bangladeshi film 14 years back in Mone Pore Tomake, with Dhallywood actor Riaz. Last year, she was linked with Iftakhar Chowdhury’s production Shaare Teen Mon, with Mosharraf Karim taking the lead, but unfortunately the project hasn’t seen the light yet.
Saikat Nasir from Dhaka and Sujit Mondal from Kolkata are jointly directing the film while production being handled by Jaaz Multimedia of Bangladesh and SK Movies of India. Some of Bangladesh-India joint production ventures were facing criticism over violating rules. Saikat Nasir has confirmed to the media that the production of Hero 420 will be taking into concern all regulations in the joint-venture production.
