In Stories by Rabindranath Tagore, she is seen in The Broken Nest episode, based on a short story by the legendary writer.
“It is not that I consciously thought of doing television. I was approached by (Anurag) Basu for this series. I’ve always wanted to work with him and he was offering me any story that I felt like doing,” Amrita told media.
“It was a dream for me to play a character like Charulata. I never thought I would get a chance to play the character,” she added.
