“Yes, why not. I’m all for glamour and I would love to portray a glamorous character,” said Sen, who showcased her talents in both Hindi as well as regional movies.

The 30-year-old, who made her debut with Godmother in 1999, followed by Rituparno Ghosh’s Chokher Bali and Pradeep Sarkar’s Parineeta, denied being typecast to a specific genre.

“No, it’s not a conscious decision at all. Like I said, I end up choosing the best of what I get. So if a great commercial movie comes my way, I’ll grab it. I want to work with different directors and experiment with different, interesting roles — ranging from out and out commercial to offbeat.”

Sen thinks she has been fortunate enough with her line-up of films when she looks back and feels lucky regarding her achievements.

“I’ve learnt a lot, experiences that cannot be measured in words and sentences and feelings that cannot be captured in a gist. But overall it’s been a fun experience.

“I cherish all the movies I’ve done so far and I’ve been lucky to have many opportunities to work with great co-stars and directors. ”

Her recent release is The Japanese Wife (left). Talking about the challenges she faced while playing a mother of an eight-year-old child, she said: “It was definitely the most challenging task, because I had to get under the skin of a mother and behave like one — a role to which I have no connection with as Raima Sen.”

The actress says more than roles, the script and director hold more importance while agreeing to do a film.

“If I like the story and I’m confident about the director, I end up taking the role, irrespective of its length,” said Sen.
