Actress Nandana Sen has gone bold on the screen to play renowned painter Raja Ravi Varma’s muse in forthcoming “Rang Rasiya”. She admits doing nude scenes is a huge responsibility and she had talked it out with her parents before giving her nod.

After remaining in the cans for more than five years, the period drama, based on Ranjit Desai’s novel titled “Raja Ravi Varma”, will unfold riots of colours and passion on the screen on Nov 7 with Randeep Hood in the role of the father of modern Indian art, and Nandana as his creative inspiration.

The film is set to revisit an era that was revolutionised by the painter who not only gave faces to gods and goddesses in his work, but also painted nudes.

As the muse, Nandana have done some bold scenes in the intense love story and she says that “nudity is a complicated issue.”

“It is something one need to think about a lot. I spent a lot of time discussing it with my patents, family before making the decision to do the part. The reason is not that I was afraid. When an artist decides to embrace nudity, it is a big responsibility. If nudity is portrayed with beauty and aesthetically, then it’s fine,” added the actress.

She admits that it was not an easy decision.

“It was not an easy decision for me. I had long conversations as I wanted my parents to give me their thoughts on the scenes. They are connected to art and culture. They were excited about the script. They support me and by the time I said yes, I had over come all the fears,” she added.

Talking about her character in the film she said: “I am playing Sugandha who is a combination of strength and softness and this is what makes her Ravi Varma’s muse.”

Kanhaiya is an aberration, nationalists don’t accept it: Rajiv Pratap Rudy

Kanhaiya-is-an-aberration,-nationalists-don't-accept-it-Rajiv-Pratap-Rudy

Kolkata: Describing Jawaharlal Nehru University Students Union president Kanhaiya Kumar as an “aberration”, union minister and BJP MP Rajiv Pratap Rudy on Sunday said such an aberration will not be accepted at the cost of nationalism.

Interacting with media persons on the sidelines of a party event here, Rudy ridiculed the Left parties for using the media and universities to turn Kanhaiya Kumar — who was jailed on sedition charges but recently granted interim bail — into a “momentary hero”.

Using the media, universities and NGOs, the Leftists sided with anti-national sloganeers and managed to turn Kanhaiya into a hero for the time being, but the people of the country are aware of Leftists’ intentions, he said.

“Kanhaiya is an aberration and the nationalism and nationalists will not allow this aberration to be part of the country’s polity,” said Rudy.

Commenting on the demand for change in the sedition laws, Rudy said those who are clamouring intolerance were anti-nationals.

“Nationalism cannot be compromised at any cost and it cannot be brought to on par with the debate of intolerance. When people are talking of breaking the country, when people are raising slogans against the country, this debate of intolerance is nothing but anti-nationalism,” said the union Minister of state for skill development and parliamentary affairs.

“It is for the court to decide whether a change needs in the sedition laws, but there cannot be any compromise when your actions are seditious,” he said.

Addressing a seminar of the party’s state intellectual cell, Rudy said the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) was the only political party in the country whose ideals are not personality-based.

“The chief character of almost all the parties, be it south India or the east, be it the Samajwadi Party or the Congress, their ideals are based on a certain personality, but the BJP’s soul is country, nationalism,” he said.

Enumerating the various developmental schemes undertaken by Narendra Modi-led government at the Centre, Rudy called upon the party’s intellectual cell to endeavour for bringing the BJP in power in West Bengal.
