She was famously linked to Booker Prize winner Salman Rushdie once upon a time. It looks like Riya Sen has a thing for authors as she considers the Bard of Bengal, Rabindranath Tagore, the perfect man for herself.
The controversy-prone starlet, who is the grand-daughter of legendary actress Suchitra Sen says that she is a true Bengali at heart who adores the Gitanjali poet. “I grew up with Tagore and nobody ever expresses the emotion of love like he did. He understood women so well. He is the perfect man everybody dreams of, including me,” says Sen.
The actress who is known for her sultry good looks will be seen in a totally deglam avatar in Rituparno Ghosh’s Nauka Dubi, based on a story of the same name by the Nobel prize-winning poet. “I am working with my sister Raima in the film, though we do not share any scenes. The story is different from the one written by Tagore, but it is based on the same elements,” says the 29-year-old actress. Sen joined the celebrations of the 150th birth anniversary of Tagore in Kolkata on Sunday, a city, which is dear to her heart.
