Aparna Sen teams up with her real-life parner in 'Antaheen'

Mumbai, July 22 (IANS) Well-known Bengali filmmaker Aparna Sen teams up with her real life husband Kalyan Ray, a professor in the United States, in Annirudh Roy-Chowdhary's second directorial venture "Antaheen".

Ray's long-distance marriage with Aparna has been so satisfying that he didn't hesitate for a minute in moving from academics to acting when she needed him to do so.

"At first Kalyan was naturally very hesitant. He had never acted before. What would a man of letters have to do with the motion-picture camera? But Reenadi (Aparna) and I were convinced Kalyan was the perfect choice for her husband's part," Roy-Chowdhary told IANS.
