Nandana Sen’s writing skills  

Posted by: shilpz in , , , ,

Stardom has eluded her in Bollywood but this dame has some unique talent which she’s putting to good use. The buzz is that the actress is a closet script writer and has already penned three scripts. Reportedly she wrote ‘The Widow of Alang’ for Norwegian director Emil Stang Lund and penned ‘Forever’ for a short film by Telefilms in Canada. But her latest and most prolific script is adapted from Indian author R K Narayan’s book ‘Waiting For Mahatma’.

The buzz is that Nandana read the book thoroughly to grasp the story’s fine points and then only went ahead and adapted the story to a movie script. She finished it pretty fast too and now it will be made into a movie by her Canadian director friend Srinivas Krishna.

The actress who would be seen in Ketan Mehta’s ‘Rang Rasiya’ opposite Randeep Hooda claims to have inherited her writing skills from her mother, the award winning writer Nabanita Dev Sen and says writing also helps her as an actress. She says that it helps her to “connect to the scenes” that she enacts in films.
Talent and stardom doesn’t always go hand in hand. Nandana must be feeling the same but is sure to not give up way too soo
