ki : are planning to act in a art movie
Nandana Sen : HI KI! Your name sounds like a japanese poem gone wrong.. or the most commonly asked bengali question.i'll act in any film that excites me, that i believe in - it doesn't matter if it's big or small, mainstream or arthouse; anyway, i think these definitions are fast becoming obsolete, don't you? i think BLACK's success proves that.


sandeep : hi nadan! what project u r workig on
Nandana Sen : hey there sandeep! i have four releases coming up - after MY WIFE'S MURDER, my american film THE WAR WITHIN will premiere at the toronto film festival and be released worldwide. that'll be followed by two other 'hollywood' films, IT'S A MISMATCH and MARIGOLD.
