The role of Rabindranath Tagore’s sister-in-law, Kadambari Devi, is to be enacted by actress Konkona Sen Sharma in her next venture. Suman Ghosh, the Director of the film confirms, “Yes, Kadambari is my protagonist and I had only Konkona in mind for her personality, her intellectual edginess and vulnerability.” After Ek Thi Daayan, she had been waiting to come up with something interesting in her next and the character is a perfect one resembling her.
The 33-year-old star is taking lots of pain to make her character portrayal fit perfect in the movie. She said, “I have put great effort to dwell on the psyche of Kadambari and other woman of the household. But that does not mean there is only passing references to men like Jyotirindranath and Rabindranath.” She further added, “Kadambari Devi, her space in the poet’s life, her equations with other women in the Tagore household as well as husband Jyotirindranath Tagore, will always make her as one of the most intriguing characters in Bengali literary history.”
