Aparajita Mohanty Second Oriya Woman Producer
Aparajita Mohanty is only the second woman producer in Odisha, after Parbati Ghose. Love Master, the maiden venture of her home production (Sai Maa Production), hit theatres recently. After over three decades of acting in odia films, she has done a new role behind the camera now.
“It isn’t a new role per se. It doesn’t matter if you are an actor, director or producer, your basic aim is to entertain the audience. If you have a good story to tell, why not invest money to see it through? Though I had decided to stay behind the camera for Love Master, the director (Chandi Parija) made me do a small role,” Aparajita said.
“Babushan is an actor-cum-playback singer, which is a rare trait in an artiste. I doubt if he could have been anything but an actor. He has been a prankster since childhood but now he is channeling all his mischief in this profession. He has a bright future. All that he needs to do is lose some weight. From a mother’s point of view, I would say he has to learn to control his anger,” she commented about her star son.
