The daughter of Nobel laureate Amartya Sen, Nandana, who has never feared skin show, says it is important for filmmakers to portray intimacy and women in an artistic way.
"I do think boldness is a complicated issue, and needs careful consideration and treatment. Female bodies are often ruthlessly and ingloriously treated as objects in showbiz, and I'd never agree to that. It would take away my humanity by turning me into a commodity," Nandana told IANS in an email interview.
She says it is high time women are treated with respect.
"let's look at the inconsistency in our business. I applaud that our culture has no problem with all kinds of bold and suggestive (some might say vulgar) movements, barely covered by minimal strands of clothing on bodies that are thrusting in all directions (and we allow our children to see this).
"What I don't understand is why the same culture refuses to acknowledge the innate dignity and beauty of the human form. My body is as much a part of my humanity as my brain, my morals, and my heart, and I will never be ashamed of expressing it, as long as it is with dignity and self-respect," she added.
"I could take that decision only after discussing it at length with my family, who were very supportive," she said.
Nandana says she is delighted "Rang Rasiya" will finally release this year. A controversial film based on the life of painter Raja Ravi Varma, it has been ready since the past three years and has been travelling to various international film festivals.
"'Rang Rasiya' keeps garnering greater acclaim and more awards in festivals all over the world. In fact, I just got the news that it will be the opening film in the New Film Series at the Bangkok International Film Festival in June and in Washington DC in May," she said.
