Being a li’l possessive is kind of cute: Indraneil Sengupta

Says actor Indraneil Sengupta, who finds it bizarre when actor-couples feign being cool with each other’s intimate scenes onscreen. Barkha Bisht is Indraneil's wife.

, who rose to fame with the TV show, Pyaar Ke Do Naam...Ek Radha Ek Shyaam, and ended up marrying his co-star Barkha Bisht, feels that in a relationship it’s absolutely normal to have a certain amount of possessiveness.

"There’s nothing wrong in being a li’l possessive, I think it’s a cute thing," says the actor, who had also recently gone on record saying that he is not comfortable watching his wife in intimate situations onscreen.

"I don’t think I am the only one to think like this... it’s the case with everyone, we humans are wired to think this way," says the seasoned actor, who’s gradually turning out to be the pet choice of contemporary cinema enthusiasts across India.

While he has acted in a gamut of award-winning films in Bengal, he rose to fame in Bollywood as the villain Milan Damji in Sujoy Ghosh’s blockbuster, Kahaani. His next, Children of War, directed by Delhi-based filmmaker Mrityunjay Devvrat, is based around the 1971 Bangladesh War of Liberalisation, and Sengupta will be seen portraying the role of a journalist, Aamir.

"More than the character, it’s his life-changing journey that attracted me to take it up," says the 39-year-old, who is currently shooting for a short film in Assam.

Ask him if the audience will see him back in Sujoy Ghosh’s next, and he says, "No, he hasn’t told me anything yet... I’m sure if there’s a role that fits me, he’ll definitely call me for it," says the father of a two-year-old daughter, who doesn’t mind shifting gears to the small screen if needed.

"I got bored of TV, so started doing films,. If I get bored with films, I might go back to TV," says


, who also looks forward to an opportunity to once again team up with his wife onscreen, some day.
