Director turned Producer Sidharth Sengupta is hugely “irritated” with the sad demise of capable performing artist Pratyusha Banerjee. Having known her from the times of Balika Vadhu, he recalls and recollects the young lady to be an upbeat, bright and to a great degree excellent individual.
Says Sidharth with a substantial heart, “Genuinely speaking, I have worked a considerable measure with Avika Gor, and after that I cleared out the appear. When I got back, Pratyusha was going to leave and Toral was to enter as Anandi. So truly, I worked with Pratyusha for 6-7 days. Having said this, I had a decent affinity with her. She was exceptionally attached to me, and used to call me for each birthday of hers. She was a straight young lady, really was a child of 19 years when she got on board Balika Vadhu.
Sidharth was one of the many people from the industry to be at Kokilaben Hospital on the night when Pratyusha died. “I was there in the hospital that night, and I don’t know why I went there. Having known the girl, I wanted to be there when I got the news. My entire team of Balika Vadhu was there too. For us, she still is part of Balika Vadhu.”
The ace director is very pissed off with reports suggesting Pratyusha to be a ‘failure’. Clarifying the point, he explained with authority, “I beg to differ. Pratyusha was not a failure. She was Pratyusha Banerjee, that is why you and I are talking about her today. I am very disturbed with the way her case is being handled by media. Nobody knows what happened on that dreaded evening; the truth is only with Pratyusha and with the guy and whoever is concerned. People are simply speculating; we should allow things to come out. I don’t know her personal life, only she knows of it. There is a life gone, we need to respect rather than talking baselessly. Let the truth come out. Give her a good bye in a dignified way; she did not bother anyone of us. We need to be graceful in bidding her good bye. She was a beautiful girl and let us not make her an object of discussion. Justice will prevail, we need to wait for it to happen……….
