3 November,2014:Â Nandana Sen is the daughter of Nobel laureate and Bharat Ratna Amartya Sen and Padma Shri Bengali writer Nabaneeta Dev Sen. Her parents separated when she was very young, but that has not deterred her from being close to the both of them, who she loves equally. She is honest, loyal, strong and thoughtful and claims to have never lost a friend in her life.
She is confident and has strong opinions. She is proud of who she is and has lived life on her own terms. Coincidentally, India’s first pin-up girl, she plays acclaimed painter Raja Ravi Varma’s muse Sugandha in Ketan Mehta’s upcoming biopic Rang Rasiya, where she took the bold decision to pose top nude for the artist. After break-up of her nine- year-old live-in relationship with Madhu Mantena, she moved to New York in the year 2012, where she met John Makinson, the Chairman and CEO of Penguin Publishing and subsequently got married to him in June 2013. Over a cup of coffee, she spoke to Bombay Times about her political awareness, her social consciousness and why Kolkata will always remain her favourite city.
