Name: Nandita Das

Height: 5'6"

Date of Birth: 7 November, 1969

Birthplace: Delhi, India

Address: Brunskill ManagementSuite 8A, 169 Queen's Gate London SW7 5HE

She is bright, gutsy and extremely articulate. From the city she prefers to live in (Delhi) to the kind of roles she won't do, Nandita has firm views on everything. After receiving rave reviews about her performance in 1947: Earth, she now awaits the release of Nagesh Kukunoor's Rockford. Nandita, who is painter Jatin Das's daughter, spoke to Suhasini Haidar about her love-hate relationship with the film world.

Nandita is a dusky beauty from Orissa, with eloquent eyes and the mark of a strong personality on her face adds to her attraction. Her father is the celebrated Oriya painter Jatin Das and her mother, an eminent writer Varsha Das. Her younder brother Siddartha is a graphic designer. Her claim to fame are critically lauded films like Deepa Mehta’s controversial film Fire and 1947: Earth, Jagmohan Mundra’s Bawander and Mrinal Sen’s Bengali film Amar Bhubon. Her film Bawander was screened at the Santa Monica Film Festival where she received the Best Actress award for her performance in 2001. Next year, in the Cairo film festival also, she won the Best Actres award for Amar Bhubon.  She served as a member of the jury board in the venerated Cannes Film Festival in May 2005.

This gifted actress acquired a Master's degree in Social Work and had begun her life as an associate of a street theatre troop that was employed by several NGOs. She opts to act in such films which have themes that can appeal to the masses, such that she can use them as a vehicle for conveying social messages. She is an avid social activist and works extensively with human rights issues, especially those in connection to women and children. She has even donned the mantle of a director and has made four short films for public service. This work she has done for the Civil Society Organizations in association with the socio-communication institute Leapfrog that she co-founded with previous husband Saumya Sen
