Rimi Sen has been a part of some memorable films like Dhoom, Golmaal, Phir Hera ll, Garam Masala and more, but she disappeared from the industry one day. Her farewell film was Budhia Singh – Born to Run, which also won a national award.
She quit because she thought nothing interesting had happened for female artists, but she is back now and has some interesting things to say. In her last interview, she spoke about Bigg Boss, asking Salman Khan for work and more.
Of her thoughts on Bigg Boss as a “career development show,” she said, “I don’t think Bigg Boss is helping you build your career. You get a name and fame, but it’s very short lived. You get all the fame, work, events, live sessions, audience interaction from Bigg Boss, but that only happens for a year. You disappear at the start of the next season and new competitors replace you. I just didn’t want to do this “hang-in there” job doing reality shows, comedy shows and so on. I just want to give this memorable performance that can leave my mark on the hearts of the public for over 10 years. This is the kind of job I want.
Rimi Sen also said what interests her most today, she said: “There are some top roles for women over 40 and it’s fantastic. Shefali Shah was amazing in Delhi Crime. Sushmita Sen did a great job with Aarya. If I can explain it better, I would just say that I’m waiting for a role like Vidya Balan’s in Kahaani, whether on OTT or on the big screen.
Asking Salman Khan for work, she kindly added: “Abhi unke paas itna bojh pehle hi hai, aur kitna daalu (He already has a lot on his plate, why would I add to his troubles?). Hote hain log comfortable, but I don’t want to bother him. He’s a very good human being. He helps people out of friendship. However, I want to do it the right way. I don’t want anyone pushing for me, going the extra mile for me. I would never want Salman to take on this burden for me.
“Yeah, because there’s nothing to show your ambition inside the Bigg Boss house.” They just want you to fight, to talk loudly, to scream all the time. I did my cooking homework well but can’t fight for attention. They design tasks like you have to fight with each other and I just wanted to stay away from that, ”concluded Rimi Sen on his thoughts on Bigg Boss.
