Rituparna’s date with the President

Rituparna Sengupta with President Pranab Mukherjee at Rashtrapati Bhavan in Delhi’s Raisina Hill; Rituparna with Muktodhara directors Nandita Roy-Shiboprosad Mukhopadhyay and the President. “I want to thank you for making me watch Muktodhara,” Pranabbabu told Rituparna after a special screening at the Rashtrapati Bhavan auditorium. Muktodhara (released on August 3) revolves around a bunch of jail inmates and a dance teacher (Rituparna) who reforms them. “I had casually mentioned the film to Suvra Mukherjee, the first lady, and she agreed to watch the film. But I was pleasantly surprised when the President, despite being so busy, agreed to watch Muktodhara,” smiled Rituparna. “Muktodhara has a social message and I am glad that the President watched it. After the screening I gifted him a tussore shawl and a Kanjeevaram sari to the first lady,” she added.
