But again, she has always been concerned about how her Baba would be affected by her actions and has drawn a thick line between freedom and behaving irresponsibly. She had fun, but within limits, she says. Her family is so important to her that she always considers what her parents would think before acting on something. And Baba is himself an experienced Bengali character actor - Ranjit Mallick. She is like any other Mumbai girl - all about fashion, makeup, studies and friends. Friends are most important to her. She still has a bunch of college mates who are her confidantes from the days she studied psychology in Gokhale College which was not all that long ago.
The young lady, who has listened to and counselled several people with various problems, turns to her college friends when she wants someone to listen to hers. And she was a good student although her heart was in becoming an actress. Joining Bollywood was a huge change and she immediately realized that she needed someone she trusted so that she could handle the ways of the industry.
reminisces that several people who had great reputations 'outside', showed their true colors once she was part of the industry. She was stunned when she would be considered for projects and suddenly dropped because some other girl had been recommended. One colleague even 'stole' Koel's designer away from her. Seems the other actress wanted to wear this particular designer's clothes exclusively. And she readily agrees that the casting couch is the worst-kept secret of the industry. No denials like all those other pretty faces who struggle to make their debut.
The young lady sounds rather philosophical about the ways of the industry and seems prepared to see its bright and dark side now. Did she get any advice from her father? Surprisingly, her father was intent on shielding his daughter from the darker side of the industry and always spoke positively about it. Later, when she joined the industry, he confessed to her that he, too, had had several bad experiences. Hearing that, Koel wisely decided that it was not worth getting hurt in the industry and decided to treat it like any other job.
She forgets about the studios after work and concentrates on her real life as Rukmini (her real name) outside of work. Talking about work, Koel, after a strong career in Bengali films, will be making her debut in Bollywood in AB Corp's forthcoming venture 'Family' opposite Aryaman, son of Keshu Ramsay, the film's co-producer. The film also stars Amitabh Bachchan and Akshay Kumar. The lady hopes that the film, directed by Rajkumar Santoshi will help her carve her own niche in Bollywood. Looks like she is well on her way to doing that.
