Bengali actress Rituparna Sengupta is upset on the decision of director Suman Mukhopadhyay's decision to cast Konkona Sen Sharma as Labanya in his forthcoming Bengali movie Shesher Kobita. Initially it was decided that Rituparna will play as Labanya in Shesher Kobita.
Since the release of Suman Mukhopadhyay's latest Bengali movie ‘Mahanagar@Kolkata, Suman and Bengali actress Rituparna Sengupta were in mutual understanding that Rituparna Sengupta will be Labanya in Suman’s next Bengali movie Shesher Kobita. Initially Indraneil Sengupta was chosen as Amit Ray in Shesher Kobita. Script of the upcoming Bengali movie Shesher Kobita is ready and Rituparna Sengupta even received one copy from Suman Mukhopadhyay. Although no contract was signed by Rituparna, it was a mutual understanding between the director and actress that Rituparna will be Labanya in Shesher Kobita. They even discussed about the Bengali movie Shesher Kobita on number of occasions regarding the other members of the cast. The shooting of Bengali movie Shesher Kobita is supposed to start from mid-February.

In recent developments, Rahul Bose is considered as Amit Ray and Konkona Sen Sharma will be Labanya in Bengali movie Shesher Kobita. Rituparna Sengupta noticed the new development from an interview of Suman published in news paper.
Actress Rituparna Sengupta has nothing against Konkona Sen Sharma but she is upset with Suman as the director did not informed her that Konkona will be Labanya in Shesher Kobita. Suman Mukhopadhyay tried to talk with Rituparna Sengupta over the phone to explain the matter but Rituparna is not willing to hear anything from Suman on this matter.

Ketty Mitra is also a critical character in Shesher Kobita and let’s look forward to see who will be Ketty Mitra in Suman Mukhopadhyay’s Shesher Kobita.
