‘Coz she’s bagged her first pivotal role in Bollywood. But wait, there’s another reason too…
Barkha Bisht Sengupta might have been a known face on television, thanks to her roles in Pyaar Ke Do Naam…Ek Radha Ek Shyam, Saajan Ghar Jaana Hai, Comedy Circus amongst others. But in Bollywood, the actor was only fleetingly seen in an item number in Raajneeti.
Finally, Barkha has got an entry into Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Ramleela as Kesar, Ranveer Singh’s bhabhi. But while this is one BIG reason to celebrate, there’s another reason why the smile didn’t leave Barkha’s face during the filming of this project. And that’s Ranveer Singh!
“Ranveer was very warm and friendly. He did his best to make me comfortable. He even complimented me after my shot,” Barkha said in an interview. Moreover, the hunk is also Sengupta’s favourite Bollywood heartthrob.
Talking about her role and Bhansali, Barkha revealed that the director was very particular about her Gujarati look. “I need to wear a dupatta on my head all the time, which was a little difficult. But Bhansali sir was very particular about the look,” she said.
Hmmm, looks like Barkha’s worked really hard for this one. But will Ramleela catapult this lady into the limelight? Time to wait and watch, peeps!
