Aparna Sen is one of India's finest filmmakers today. But then she was born in 1945
into a family of filmlovers, her father, noted film critic and historian Chidananda Dasgupta,
being a founder member of the Calcutta Film Society along-with Satyajit Ray. Aparna made
her debut in films as an actress in 1961 while she was still in school, in Satyajit Rays
Teen Kanya (1961). She has since acted under the directorial baton of noted film directors
including Mrinal Sen, James Ivory and Satyajit Ray. She received the Best Actress Award for

Incidentally, actor Aamir Khan is jury member at the 55thLocarno Film Festival inSwitzerlandthis year.
