“I am simply overwhelmed at the response that the audience of Kolkata has given to my film. The audience was fantastic. People from every walk of life came to the film festival to watch the movie. Several people even watched the whole movie standing as they couldn’t manage to get a seat,” said Nandana while talking to reporters after the screening of her film.

“It’s really fascinating to see so many people have come to see my movie,” added the actress.

Directed by Ketan Mehta, Rang Rasiya is based on 19th century painter Raja Ravi Verma, played by Randeep Hooda, and his muse Sugandha Bai, played by Nandana (seen above).

The movies shows how Ravi Verma painted Sugandha Bai partially nude in his portraits, which later kicked a storm fuelled by religious priests.
