"Madame, you know Konkona Sen?...You know, you look just like her!"
That was just a smooth talking linking rd. shop keeper trying to sell me another pair of shoes but that isn't the first time people have spoken of the similarity between me and Konkona Sen. I can never quite tell if I resemble a celebrity or anybody else for that matter but this is one association I'm quite proud of. The reason being, I respect Konkona Sen as a performer and I'm truly glad she hasn't succumbed to Bollywood's sleazy charms, just yet. She has chosen challenging roles and essayed them with fluid ease. She's proven that you don't have to be drop dead gorgeous to create a telling impact on your audience. You simply need to act. Something that most other Bollywood actresses have long forgotten. Keep it coming, Mrs.Iyer...In your honour, I bought the green pair too! :)
