Cross region acting careers are no longer a rare phenomenon, with quite a few northerners, especially actresses, thronging the southern scene, obviously hoping for an ultimate graduation into the national arena! Some of the moment to settle down in the south after making a name there. However, the migration of a Bengali girl into southern cinema is somewhat of a rarity as of now. Angana spent her formative years in
New Delhi, belonging to non resident Bengali family settled there. After getting her Masters in Business Administration she moved to Bangalore like so many other career oriented girls and started working as a Human Relations manager at a leading corporate firm.
However, being tall and attractive, between her corporate responsibilities she managed to create a modeling portfolio and caught the attention of film director Manohar, who facilitated her entry into Tamil movies by casting her in his comedy film “
Ragalaipuram”.Her acting career really seemed to be on a fast track, before the release of her first film, she began work on two more Tamil films - “
Kabadam” and “
Vathikuchi”. Since then she has also signed on to appear in Telugu and Kannada language films. The year 2015 also saw the release of her maiden Malayalam film “Picket 43”. For her next assignment, she was back intoTamil films, with one titled, “
Mahabalipuram” where she played the typical character of a newly married, office going girl.
In 2015, she is also slated to be part of two major Telugu projects, including a big budget film, about which Angana seemed quite upbeat, appreciating the larger than life settings of Telegu movies. But the lure of Tamil films, where she made her initial mark does not seem to leave her, and she has confirmed her role in another big Tamil film, which is said to be a sequel to an older hit.What gives her glum satisfaction is, however, the fact that being basically a Bengali girl, she has managed to be part of the entire Southern film industry having acted in all the four languages.
