Actress Riya Sen, made a name for herself as a glamorous starlet with masala Bollywood films like Apna Sapna Money Money, Shaadi No.1 and Qayamat.
A 'Different' Riya
Riya now hopes that people will get to see a different her in Rituparno Ghosh's Noukadubi where she plays a demure wife.
Riya, who stars alongside her sister Raima in the movie, does not feel that she could not find good roles because of her glamorous image.
Glam Goes Plain !
'I am used to doing up my face before going in front of the camera but in this film my opening shot was the ship wreck. I did the make-up really well, then they smudged it. But I enjoyed that.
'I won't say that being glamorous has made much difference but I am confident that I am different in the movie,' Riya told.
Return To Roots
Granddaughter of Bengali screen legend Suchitra Sen, Riya says that despite belonging to Bengal she never got a chance to star in any movie from the region until Noukadubi. 'It was really a novel experience for me to return to my roots after such a long time.'
