A few days ago, a leading newspaper claimed Nusrat Jahan, the thali girl of last year’s (KIFF) will reprise the same role this year as well. Nusrat Jahan, who is close to our chief minister, will reprise her thali girl role at the 22nd Kolkata International Film Festival (KIFF). But now, we hear it’s actually Mimi Chakraborty who has been chosen for that part on the day of opening. The ‘Gangster’ girl is excited for holding the thali in the inauguration.
Speaking to us, Mimi sounded quite excited about her debut.“It’s a great honour and I’m looking forward to share the stage with such important personalities from around the world,“ the actress told CT, which kicks off in the city on November 11.
When we asked about her fashion plans for the big day , she said, “It will be a fusion lehnga.First I thought of wearing a sari, but changed my mind, as I feel I have to look different.“ “I also plan to catch a few films at the festival, as some of the best world films are being shown at KIFF ,“ expressed Mimi.
