Swatilekha Sengupta’s most-loved appreciation letter

Amitabh Bachchan has time and again made the people in the film fraternity happy by writing them letters whenever he found somebody’s work impactful. Belaseshe was one of the films which had people around the country praising its plot and execution. Actor Swatilekha Sengupta recently spoke about how dear the letter that she received from Amitabh Bachchan has been to her.

I had always been a fan of Mr Bachchan and wanted to meet him, but never got any such chance to interact with him. I was elated when I heard that Mr Bachchan liked my performance in 'Belaseshe'. The note sent by him is one of my prized possessions in life. Getting appreciated by such a veteran film personality would be an actor's dream

Belaseshe has a special place in my heart. It was after 30 years that I shared the screen with Soumitrada. And also, getting directed by someone who was once your student is a great feeling indeed.
