Nandana Sen PICTURES (11)
IN THE SPOTLIGHT
Nandana Sen is an Indian actress, screenwriter, children's author and child-rights activist. Her first vehicle in Bollywood was the Rani Mukherjee and Amitabh Bachchan starrer Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Black in which she played the role of Rani’s 17-year-old younger sister.
After teaming up on a succession of projects with Indian directors including Ram Gopal Varma and Ketan Mehta, Sen signed for one of the principal roles in the jarring, terrorist-themed American drama The War Within which premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival and, in the process, both made a name for herself and began to cultivate a reputation for being drawn to offbeat, challenging, and demanding roles, often with a social or political theme.
