Actress Reemma Sen’s Bengali movie Iti Srikanta, where she’s played the sensational role of a commercial sex worker, was talked about for her bold bedroom scenes.
The film is now being dubbed in Tamil and will be called Ilavarasi. A period film set in 1910, the movie is directed by ace Bengali filmmaker Anjan Das and has Soha Ali Khan and Adil playing lead roles.
Reemma plays a girl called Rajalakshmi who is from a poor family and comes to be sold by her mother to a landlord for money. Later, she is named Daasi by the landlord and forced into prostitution.
Sources reveal that the lovemaking scene between Reemma and Adil created a big stir when the Bengali original was released. The movie has won two awards – one for art direction and the other for sound effects.
Although Reemma does not have any films in hand in K’town, the makers of Iti Srikanta feel that her hot and bold act will work the necessary magic at the box-office.
The Censor Board has cleared Ilavarasi with an A Certification.
