National award-winning actress Konkona Sen Sharma celebrates her 29th birthday today. The daughter of Aparna Sen, Konkona first caught our eye in movies such as Mr & Mrs Iyer, for which she won the first of her two National Awards and Page 3, for which she won the Zee Cine Best Debut Award.
Her second National Award came for her stunning performance in the magnificent Omkara, for which she also won a Filmfare Best Supporting Actress Award. And then, of course, there was her perfect performance in the moving and thoughtful Life…In A Metro last year. In addition, this writer rates her performance in the remarkable Traffic Signal as one of her best.
This week sees Konkona’s latest release – Dil Kabaddi – and next month she can be seen in the delayed The President is Coming and Luck by Chance. In Dil Kabaddi, she appears alongside Soha Ali Khan and the in-form Irrfan Khan, whilst in The President is Coming, it’s rumoured she plays the role of a lesbian activist! Luck By Chance has her opposite Farhan Akhtar and also in the pipeline is the nearly completed Wake Up Sid, where she can be seen with Ranbir Kapoor.
We here at BollySpice wish her a very Happy Birthday and can’t wait to see her upcoming films!
