Reema Sen in Ilavarasi Movie Stills

Many film-based websites and Tamil film magazines are literally littered with photograph showing actress Reema Sen’s provocative ‘bare back’. The photograph is said to be from one of the earlier films done by the actress when she was still feeling her way into the Bengal film industry.

As luck would have it, it was spotted by a distributor who made all out efforts to release the dubbed version of the Bengali film ‘Iti Srikantha’. Efforts are on to release the Tamil dubbed version of the film titled ‘Ilavarasi’. Reemma’s fans as well as movie-goers appear to be feeling aghast that Reema could ever be a part of what is projected as a soft-porn film.

Film industry is full of stories of all leading actresses appearing in skimpily clad costumes and in ultra-glamourous roles in a film or two very early in their careers. The trend has been there right from the times when Sreedevi debuted in Tamil in the mid-seventies and is in vogue till today. As such, Reema might have appeared in some glamourous costumes in ‘Iti Srikantha’ which was made early in her career.

Her role of that of a ‘sex worker’ in the film demanded that she appear in such costumes. Commenting on the still doing rounds in websites, Reema said “I played a sex worker in the film and did star in a ‘bedroom sequence’ which is shown in the film not more than for a few seconds or so. It’s rather unfortunate that the sequence is being blown out of proportion as if I starred in a soft-porn film. In fact, the film is a damn good film and makes for good viewing!”

Got the message, Ma’am!
