Another Version Of This Bios:
Chitrapama Banerjee as is her full name has been a TV actress who had come into the world of TV serials in early 2000 and continued with breaks in between till around 2012. Nothing much has been heard about her thereafter, in the context of TV serials or film roles, although at one time in 2011 she was tipped to get a mother’s role in the comeback movie of
. In fact, Chitrapamaa’s career history has been somewhat clouded by the fact that at various stages in her career she has changed her screen name and hence there seems to be a loss of continuity for a proper record of her appearances.
As per her own admission, she started her career in 2000 with the Sony TV serial “
Thodi Si Bewafai
”, but on the insistence of the producers of the serial, she used the shorter name of ‘
’, instead of Chitrapama Banerjee. However, she used her original name for the 2004 Sahara One serial “Kamini Daminini”, which incidentally was Hema Malini’s debut TV serial and was based on Hema’s own hit film “
Seeta Aur Geeta
”. Although this was a reasonably successful serial, Chitrapaa seems to have gone into a shell after this, presumably for setting up her family and settling down to domestic responsibilities.
She, however, got a recall in 2009 and was featured in the lead role for the Zee TV serial “Maa”. Getting back into the world of serials she decided to use just her first name Chitrapaa for her screen identity, having got married in between to makeup professional, and even becoming a mother. In fact, she declared that being a real mother had helped her portray her screen role much better and with conviction, making the serial one of the most popular ones on Zee TV at that point of time in 2009-2010. Overall Chitrapamaa’s career has been a chequered one with her high point being her role in the serial “Maa”, but after that, not much was heard about her, perhaps due to the fact that she seemed more inclined to fulfill her domestic obligations towards her family rather than lead a typical actress’s career.
