Auroshikha Dey Hindi Actress

Auroshikha Dey

It has been a long way from remote Tezpur in Assam to the Mumbai cine word for Auroshikha. While she always harboured this desire to be an actress, she was pretty serious about it, and besides her training in classical dance from early childhood, also went to the IIFT Pune for a getting trained into acting. She confides that the path to achieving her status in the film world was not very easy, but does not fret about it. In fact she is thankful for the way the film industry has welcomed her into its fold, when she made her maiden appearance in Hindi Films in 2012 in “Myoho” playing a central role. The film was one with a heavy message for society, and in the film she was pitted against her fellow IIFTian Kanwaljit Singh. In fact she has acted in quite a lot of films dealing with social evils like Seema Kapoor's movie, “Haat” dealing with gender bias against females, produced under the aegis of the of the National Film Development Corporation (NFDC). The film has participated in various international film festivals from 2011 onwards and drawn kudos for it from all quarters. In between to satiate her acting instincts, she has not differentiated between regional and Hindi films but gone ahead and acted in quite a few regional films, including one in her own mother tongue Bengali, entitled, “Rongpencil” based on the “Pather Panchali” famous novelist, Bibhutibhushan Bandopadhyay’s story; and a Malayalam film called “De Nova - The Road Less Trodden”, where she was cast in the heroine’s role. In fact she has also acted recently in an international short film entitled “Point of Origin” which was the recipient of worldwide acclaim. Her noteworthy mainstream films include the recently released NH-8 on an slightly off beat semi psychological theme in which she has to portray a rather difficult role, which even the audience may not come to like. However, she loves a challenge and took it up to win appreciation from niche circles. She has also acted with Naseeruddin Shah in “Charlie Ke Chakkar Mein”, portraying the character of a rookie officer in an investigative role. She has a Nagesh Kukunoor film also to her credit, “Ye Hosla”, playing one of the main roles in a woman centric film, boasting of veterans Tanuja and Tanvi Azmi as her co-stars in the film.

Bhavna Pani

Bhavna Pani’s father Uday Shanker Pani, left his native Odisha to make a mark for himself in the ad film world in Mumbai. Therefore, not surprisingly, Bhavna with her early training in Odishi dance, is acknowledged today as one of the leading young exponents of this classical dance form, having performed at numerous global locations. Already a part of the Bollywood fraternity, today Bhavna presents a multiple façade of her artistic and creative talents. Not content with just being recognised as an exponent of Odishi dance form, she went on to gain expertise in other Indian classical dance forms like Kathak, from masters like Birju Maharaj, earlier having been trained in Odishi from the age of 7 by none other than the legendary Guru Kelucharan Mohapatra. However, her pursuit for acquiring versatility in dancing did not end here – she acquired expertise in Western dance forms too, being trained at the Terrence Lewis Contemporary Dance Company as also from well known figures like jazz and ballet dancers Jaan Freeman and Yana Tracy from London. While it was her dancing that always kept her more occupied, her entry into the screen world has been through the usual route of modelling and ad films, helped, no doubt, by her own father’s stature as one of the leading ad film makers of that time. This could be the reason why her name figures in over 75 commercial ads for leading brands, alongside top Bollywood heroes. But her formal entry into mainstream cinema was in 2001, through the Bollywood film “Tere Liye” when she was just 17, followed soon with a quiet guest role in “Dil Vil Pyar Vyar”. Before she could come back to Bollywood through “Fast Forward” in 2009, she appeared in a number of Kannada and Telugu films, and later shifting to Malayali films with the film “Vettam”. Although she had acted in two other rather inconsequential Hindi films like “Tez” and one of similar genre entitled “Graveyard Shift” in 2012 and 2013, she seems to be making Malayali films her mainstay for the present, through her appearance in “Aamayum Muyalum” Although Bhavana has won several awards and certificates for dancing, her acting recognition so far has been through the Mahindra Excellence in Theatre Award for her supporting role in the drama “So Many Socks”
