us about your background?
am Kamalinee Mukherjee. I am born and raised in Kolkota.
I am a graduate in English. And I have been living in Mumbai
for the past 3 and half years. I came to Mumbai to do workshop
in theater as I had a very strong theater background. Later,
I did lots of ads such as Neelkamal Furniture, Parachute
hair oil, Fair and Lovely and Ayush hair shampoo. I just
completed doing my first feature film in the direction of
Revathi in Hindi. It has Salman Khan, Abhishek Bachchan,
Shilpa Shetty and me in the main leads. My second film is
made you to choose theater?
Theater is my passion. Theater and dance come to me spontaneously.
I am a trained Bharata Natyam dancer for the past 8 years.
worked for a project each in Hindi and Telugu. How different
are the environments?
I don't think there is much of a difference. The only difference
is the language. I am more comfortable working for 'Anand'
as the entire team of cast and crew belong to same age group.
We learn together. We discover new things everyday. For
Revathi's unit it is different. I am acting with three big
stars and I am a debutant actress.
us about your experience in working with Revathi?
Revathi is fabulous. She is in control of every situation.
I think what really works for her is the fact that she is
such a good actress herself. She knows exactly how to extract
what she wants. The film is fabulous. I hope I have done
a good job. Revathi is emotionally driven.
is very passionate about his work. He has very good aesthetic
sense. At the same time, he injected commercial elements.
Anand is in a genre film making which has not been experimented
for a while. It has got very fresh and clean feel to it.
It has got laughter, tears, fights and comedy. Script of
'Anand' is very strong. This film is not about the plot,
it is about the people instead. All the characters are well
rounded. They are there for a purpose.
us about your character in 'Anand'?
I play the character of Rupa in this film. Rupa is very
strong and matured. She is been through so much that she
is very defensive. At the same time, she is very soft. Her
reactions are very compassionate. She goes through very
bad experiences which make her wary of the people and situations
us about the film Anand in few words?
Anand deals with smaller things.
are your strengths?
I am very expressive and spontaneous. I am very persistent.
I love acting. Don't you want to know my weaknesses?
I am very stubborn. I can be very impatient, when it comes
to what I want. I am very sarcastic.
you watched any Telugu films?
I have watched parts of a film called Okkadu. I also watched
Appudappudu - a film of my co-star Raja. I really liked
Okkadu. I have watched lots of good Hindi remakes of Telugu
blockbusters and I know the kind of feel Telugu people have.
What I like the most in Telugu films are superb dances.
do you like the city Hyderabad?
have been living in Padamarao Nagar, Hyderabad for the past
3 months. I really like Hyderabad. I come from Kolkota.
It is called as city of joy. But it's a dirty city. Even
Mumbai is a dirty city. In Hyderabad, all I see is greenery
and cleanliness. I had never seen such a place like Hi-tech
city. It is really impressive. I also like flyovers, hussain
sagar and food.
are your hobbies?
I love reading. I am an avid reader. I love dancing. I do
paint. I like poetry. I am a complete film buff. I watch
films on constant basis. There are even times when I watched
3 movies a day in Mumbai when I have nothing else to do.
kinds of books do you read?
I read any thing that I can lay my hands on. Right now I
am reading a book, which is actually a true story report
on the crimes of these two brothers called Krays. I read
lots of spiritual stuff. But I hate science fiction.
are your favorite cloths?
I love jeans. I am more comfortable in jeans. Jeans and
t-shirt is my normal ware.
you get any encouragement from your parents while choosing
the acting career?
In the beginning, they were little apprehensive. Now they
are very supportive. They trust me so much.
are performing for a rain song now? How is it like drenching
yourself for hours together in rain?
In winter, it is terrifying. In summer, it is fun. I had
a few scenes that were shot in winter. Now I am doing a
rain song in this summer. I am having quite a blast.
Who are your favorite actors and actresses?
I like Amitab Bachchan a lot. I worship him. I love Guru
Dutt. In the recent times, I liked Ajay Devgan. Among the
actresses, I like Madhuri Dixit very much.
What kind of food do you like?
I am a complete foodie. I like Chinese, Biryani, Thai and
everything. I just dote on food. I love Hyderabadi biryani
and I also like spicy food in Hyderabad.
Every Bong grows up on fish. And I am not an exception.
I love fish.
is your favorite word?
My main motto in life is to spread happiness. If I spread
happiness, it comes back to me. I do it very consciously
you have any boy friend?
I do not have any boy friends. I am not into any relationship
and I don't want to involve in it. It is time consuming
and energy consuming. I think I am not ready for it yet.
