She has been seen playing a number of different roles in her career, however audiences will see Nandana Sen play what seems to be one of the most memorable performances of her career.

In Ketan Metha’s ‘Rang Rasiya’ Sen plays the muse of famous painter Raja Ravi Verma, who was the first to paint the beautiful portraits of Hindu Gods and Goddesses. The film has been predicted as quite controversial, however Sen believes she was made for this role. “I have always loved Ravi Varma’s works. When I was studying at Harvard I had a painting of Hamsa Damayanti in my dorm room. I also have two large Ravi Varma paintings at my home. I feel I was destined to play this role. I have always been fascinated by his works,” Hindustan Times��reported the actress explaining.

She went onto add, “I have been looking at the eyes of these women while I was growing up and now I get to play the woman who inspired these paintings.”

The period film will see Sen opposite Randeep Hooda. Talking about her time working on the film, she expressed how she had always wanted to work with Metha, “It was a wonderful, magical and special experience working in this film. I always wanted to work with Ketan because I feel he is a wonderful artiste. All his films have always, in a very effortless way, given the message of freedom. This film is about freedom of expression.”

Though the film was made back in 2008, due to a few partnership hurdles the makers were unable to release it until now. ‘Rang Rasiya’ will hit cinemas this weekend.
