Actor Nandana Sen feels nudity portrayed by her in the film Rang Rasiya symbolises woman power. “Nudity can be depicted in two ways – when you present a women’s body as an object then it’s demeaning to a women. The way a woman’s body has been presented in this film (Rang Rasiya), it celebrates the power of women,” said Nandana.
The actor said she received hate mail after news of her role was leaked. “Without knowing what the film was all about, or why I had done the scene, I received hate mail for the scenes. There were objections from different quarters also,” she said. Based on the 19th century Indian painter Raja Ravi Verma, played by Randeep Hooda, and his muse Sugandha Bai played by Nandana Sen, the film shows how the legendary painter’s partially nude portraits irked priests of that era and kicked a controversy.
