Almost every girl grows up wanting to be a Disney princess, with the sparkly tiaras and the glittering gowns. For young actress Bibriti Chatterjee, that dream came true with Bhotbhoti. In the upcoming film directed by Tathagata Mukherjee, Bibriti plays a mermaid. As far as the poster and the songs prove, it is an ethereal, dreamy role. Bibriti says, “All young girls want to be a Disney princess. So did I. And for me, the dream has become real!”
The beautiful Bibriti has acted in Byomkesh Gotro (2018), but as member of an ensemble cast. Bhotbhoti is her debut as the female lead. How does it feel to play a mermaid in her first standalone role? Bibriti says, “It feels fantastic! I’m the first Indian actress to play a mermaid. There have been quite a few adaptations of Snow White and Cinderella, but no one has depicted Ariel’s story, The Little Mermaid, before this. Tathagata has shown that courage.”
Bibriti also says, “Of course I felt like a princess while shooting for Bhotbhoti. But even when we weren’t filming, everyone made me feel like a princess. In fact even now, every day they make me feel like I’m wearing a crown on my head!”
The young actress is a little nervous about Bhotbhoti after the song release. Why? Bibriti explains, “Till the day before the song launch, I wasn’t really feeling any pressure. But at the launch event I could feel my heart racing. I realised that everyone’s eyes will be on this film. So now I’m feeling nervous!”
