Along with the pictures, they wrote, “Omg you guys it’s Bébé @konkonas and the fourth picture is cinema herstory with two fabulous people in one frame.” Konkona, equally thrilled, re-shared the pictures and wrote, “Haha love this!!

The photos show a young, wide-eyed Konkona dressed in a pink saree adorned with a nose ring, bangles and earrings. With her hair up in a bun, the actor looks adorable in the pictures, something fans also agreed with. “Those eyes....And,2nd picture....Just like a painting,” wrote one fan, another wrote, “@konkonas you are instantly recognizable in these pics. Without your confirmation these pics could have been passed for an AI generated version of your childhood pics.”

About Sati

Based on a story by Kamal Kumar Majumdar, Sati tells the story of a mute Uma, played by Shabana, who’s married to a banyan tree because her ‘kundli (birthchart)’ suggests her husband would die. Aparna explored the story from a feminist perspective, as to how in 1828 this would mean that Uma would have to undergo sati if her husband dies. Arun Banerjee also starred in the film, apart from Shabana and Konkona.

Talking to Times Now last year, Shabana fondly recalled working with Konkona and said, “Reena (Aparna) and I go back a very long way. I gave her daughter the nickname Koko. She played my daughter in Aparna’s Picnic. Konkona was such a confident actor even as a child! And if you remember, she had a small role with me in Sati. I knew all along, she will be an artiste, nothing else.”

Konkona will soon be seen in Metro…In Dino, while Shabana will star in Bun Tikki.
