Bollywood actress Rimi Sen earned much fame in a very short span of time. She made her debut in 2003 with the comedy film ‘Hungama’. The film wasn’t only a box office hit but became one of the best Hindi films of Bollywood. Rimi won the Filmfare Best Female Debut award that year.
With the success of her first film, many exciting films fell into her lap. We saw her in other blockbuster films like Dhoom, Baghban, Phir Hera Pheri and Golmaal.
Despite working in such hit films with top actors in the industry, Rimi is not happy with her work. She feels that she has achieved nothing.
She said in a recent interview, “I did Dhoom, Phir Hera Pheri, Hungama, Golmaal and I had the role of furniture in all of them. That time the film industry was male dominated. Today content is the hero. Back then, hero was the only hero! OTT platforms have changed the scene today.”
She further added, “Now when I watch my films after 10 years, I realise what have I achieved? Nothing.”
Rimi says that the times are changing today and that she had not anticipated that there would be a revolution in the industry. She said, “In our times heroines used to work till 33 and then their career was finished. All they got after that were side roles. Even I believed that once I cross 30, I’ll be pushed to side characters. I never sensed that one day we’ll have a scenario where we’ll get performances like Shefali Shah in Delhi Crime or Vidya Balan in Kahaani. If I could foresee this, maybe I would’ve never quit.”
Rimi now hopes to make a comeback soon.
