Sukanya here. I have always dreamt of carving out a niche space for myself. I always aspire to become that ‘somebody’ who nobody ever thinks or thought I could be!
A Virgo by birth, I belong to a cultured middle class joint family that has always valued the Bengali tradition and emotions of deep-rooted family bindings. I always thank God for gifting me with a wonderfully blessed and happy childhood.
Dance has always been in my blood, and I simply can’t survive without it. I am a trained classical dancer, Gold Medalist in Rabindra Nritya and was a part of the renowned Shaimak Davar choreography group for many years. I am a theatre artist as well.
Before entering the world of ‘Light-Camera-Action’, I used to be a teacher by profession. I had worked as the Teachers’ Coordinator/Head in a reputed CBSE school and later, in an International Baccalaureate (IB) school in Pune, Maharashtra.
In February 2020, I got the opportunity to become a part of one of the prestigious Bengali Mega Serials, Netaji (Zee Bangla), and my acting life takes off. Later, I played the lead female character in ‘Joy Maa Kali Boarding’, a Jalsha Movie Originals movie, directed by the renowned Tollywood Director, Shree Komoleshwar Mukhopadhyay, under nIdeas Creation production house of Mr. Prasenjit Chatterjee. After that, I have worked with Surinder Films Production House in two of their Mega serials. I am also working for an upcoming Mega serial in Colors Bangla. Besides, I have worked in other serials like Rani Rashmoni and Kanyadaan. I have also worked on 5 short films with FTII, Pune and MIT, Pune. One of my short films, Ana is available in Disney Hotstar, Mx Player and YouTube.
A turning point in my career came over when Rajib Da gave me the opportunity to feature in BOGO GIRL. I was extremely excited but a little nervous as well because I am an actor and modelling was not what I had initially thought I would ever try. But Rajib Da guided me well, and I will remain ever thankful to him for believing in me and helping me explore a new version of myself.
And, last but not the least, I am thankful to the Almighty for bestowing upon me such a supportive family. Without their support, I wouldn’t have been able to chase my dreams. Whatever I have become today, I owe it all to my Family.
Best Regards, Sukanya.
