Tarique Choyon: You are famous as an actress. Beside this you have huge involvement in social works. Interestingly or unfortunately many people don’t know much about it. That’s why today I want to introduce another Rituparna. So how do you describe yourself as a social worker?
Rituparna Sengupta: Social work is something which I feel very obligated about. I think it’s our moral obligation to be little aware of the people around us. As a responsible citizen I think I should be the first one to step up to the cause. Currently I am attached with many organizations. Despite of organizations, I feel strongly about anyone who is in distress. I feel this is like a commitment.
Tarique Choyon: In 2014, you have announced to donate your body after death. Which things motivated you to do so?
Rituparna Sengupta: Thanks. The inspiration came from some of my friends who already donated their body. But the motivation came a long ago from my uncles who donated their body. So you can say that the motivation came from my family. I think it’s a great virtue. When I die, my ashes won’t be of use to anybody. Instead, my body can be useful to inject life into others, to give eyes to the blind. This would enhance my purpose of living even after death. Because after our death the body means nothing. They burn it and get only the ashes. They flow the ashes in Ganga. So nothing is left. Any of my organ can be used for medical research too.
Tarique Choyon: In 2015 you walked the ramp with the street children of Hope Kolkata Foundation. In 2016, along with actor Prosenjit you were present at the charity show of the Welfare Society for the Blind. Both programs were for supporting underprivileged part of our society. How much did you enjoy these works? Do you have any plan like these in near future?
Rituparna Sengupta: Yes. Now I am creating an event by my own effort on 10th October. There I am going to provide support to 100 children and ladies in West Bengal through an NGO. Beside I frequently donate clothes to 100 poor people during the Puja in our area. In my own small capacity, I try to do as much as I can to help others.
Tarique Choyon: You have done lots of content based movies! Amongst all “Dahan” is my personal favorite. Through it’s nice plot along with your outstanding performance we got a very strong message of our society. As a fan, I am very much interested to know your feeling after being a part of this masterpiece…
Rituparna Sengupta: Dahan is one of my most special movies which is very close to my heart. Dahan’s story is relevant to today’s society events too! Each and every day that is happening. I mean in Dahan the girl tortured by the criminals. It’s like couple of years ago, Delhi’s Nirbhaya Rape Case. In newspapers we can find Dahan type of news every day. I think Dahan’s relevancy will remain till the torture and rape stop completely. I think we can stop it totally, when everyone become aware about it.
Tarique Choyon: You became victimized in Dahan by stalkers. Did you face anything like that in real life too?
Rituparna Sengupta: Oh! Yes. Eve teasing is happening always. I faced it too.
Tarique Choyon: Before you become a star or after?
Rituparna Sengupta: Both! I think it doesn’t matter whether you are a star or not. You are facing it every time!
Tarique Choyon: Thank you Rituparna and best wishes for your upcoming projects.
Rituparna Sengupta: Thank you very much Choyon.
