Remember Rimi Sen. The actress did films like Hungama, Dhoom in her career and disappeared totally. She was seen in Bigg Boss 9 and made news for the huge amount she received for the show. Rimi Sen was paid a whopping Rs two crores for a 50-day stay inside the house. The actress in a long interview to SpotboyE has spoken about how she was unhappy being offered typical roles by makers.
She told them, "I was doing quite well 10 years back but I was only being offered comedy movies. And I was looking for my creative satisfaction which I wasn't getting out of the movies which I have done. I wanted to work in projects with directors like Shree Ram Raghvan, Soojit Sircar, Neeraj Pandey. But I didn't get. So it was a concious decision from my side to stop. I wanted to change the trend of me doing comedy movies and furniture roles."
The actress in an earlier interview said that Bigg Boss 9 helped her a lot financially. It was very good money. Talking about how she managed to pull through despite no film offers, Rimi said, "I used to do a lot of events. I also produced a film Budhia Singh- Born To Win which also recieved a national award. I am working on a couple of projects as a producer and will announce about it, if everything gets finalised. Now, if I do acting it will be just for my creative satisfaction and not money."
Rimi Sen also revealed to SpotboyE that it takes strong PR and lobby to have a long career in the industry. She said, "Yes and the only reason was their PR which was really good. Hardwork is not the only key to have a long life here, you need to have a strong PR and lobby here, which I didn't have at that point of time."
