In the 1970s, veteran actor Moushumi Chatterjee was one of the most recognisable faces in the business. She gained recognition as an actor in Bengali and Hindi films. The Balika Badhu actor recently spoke candidly about her profession and recounted how Mahesh Bhatt previously warned her that she would become pregnant anytime her career started to take off.
In a previous interview, Moushumi Chatterjee discussed her work in the film industry and that she wasn’t interested in dating. She claimed that she had entered the film industry as an actor in order to focus solely on her career.
The veteran actress talked candidly about her lengthy career in the film business in a recent interview. When questioned if her choice to leave the set of Desh Premi had affected her relationship with Amitabh Bachchan, Moushumi recalled a story about director Mahesh Bhatt. Not at all, she responded. when I witnessed Amitabh Bachchan’s struggle. He always gave it his all to achieve the A-grade level. As an actress, I never gave everything I had. Mahesh Bhatt once remarked that women get pregnant as soon as their careers advance. These are the challenges I face in my work, he claimed. He was wrong, I responded; they enhanced the colours in my life.
Moushumi also stated during the interview that she never experienced any pressure regarding her pregnancy or whether it would hinder her career. She claimed that because she already had everything she desired, she was never “under any pressure.” My fame and career were never important to me. She also disclosed that she became pregnant while filming Roti Kapda Aur Makaan, which angered actor Manoj Kumar.
Anuraag (1972), Roti Kapada Aur Makaan (1974), Manzil (1979), Angoor (1982), Ghar Ek Mandir (1984), and most recently in Shoojit Sircar’s Piku (2015) are a few of Moushumi Chatterjee’s best-known compositions. In 2015, she was presented with a Filmfare Lifetime Achievement Award.
