Ollywood actress Supriya is quite a busy bee now. She is currently fulfilling her work commitments. She has her dates packed for this year as her films Puskara, Hatakadi, Shankar and Bapa Superman are being readied to hit theatre one after the other.
Everyone is well aware of how glamour is the most important quotient of films. However, some actresses dare to face the camera sans make-up. In Puskara movie, Supriya will don a de-glam avatar. She will be seen as a widow throughout the movie.
Supriya, who is busy shooting her movie Puskara right now took some time off to get candid with OTV and share something about her upcoming project.
Speaking about her upcoming flick Puskara, being produced under the banner of Tarang Cine Productions, Supriya said, “Once a person dies, a priest has to go through panji (almanack) to determine if the death of the person brings pushkara dosha for family or not. It is believed that puskara dosha can adversely affect the deceased’s family if puskara puja is not done to invalidate its impact.”
Elaborating more about it, Supriya said, “Gone are the days when a particular Brahmin colloquially known as Puskara Brahman used to perform special rituals to protect the deceased’s family from its adverse impact. There was a time in Puri when Puskara Brahmin used to dress themselves as deceased and were offered foods which were favourites of the deceased. In the meantime, relatives of the deceased used to visit the Pushkara Brahmin and puskara dosha can adversely affect the deceased’s family if puskara puja is not done to invalidate its impactpoured their hearts out. Going by tradition, the Puskara Brahmin was made to sleep on the hearse and carried to the cremation ground. It is believed that the ritual helped the family from the adversity of Puskara Dosa. However, things have changed with the passing of time.”
Supriya, who will be seen opposite Sabyasachi Mishra, said, “My movie with Sabyasachi depicts the old tradition of Puskara puja which was held in Puri in ancient times. I will be seen in a de-glam avatar. The film will showcase the romance between Sabyasachi and me. Though we love each other, we won't have a happy ending. My character’s name is Sunanda, who will be seen getting married where her family decides despite being in love with Sabyasachi since college life. After Sunanda gets married, Sabyasachi turns into a Puskara Brahmin. When Sunanda loses her husband, Sabyasachi is called to invalidate puskara dosa of my husband. Rest is history. I won't divulge much. It has a completely different storyline. I want the audience to watch and give their feedback.”
