The three star sisters – Suchanda, Babita and Champa – will be remembered in history as the queens of their respective times, who gave the industry a number of hit films and remain a towering inspiration till date.
Ruling the industry between 1960s and 1990s, they each got national awards to their credit, too.
Suchanda, the eldest of them, is now set to make a documentary film on the lives and achievements of the trio.
The documentary, Teen Konya, will go on the floors in January.
The title would resonate with many who watched a film of the same title, directed by Shibly Sadick, which remains the only film in which the three sisters shared screen space.
‘I have been thinking of making a documentary on our life and works for the past two years. Now I am ready with a script, and hope to begin shooting very soon,’ said Suchanda, also an award-winning director.
The documentary will feature the stories of the sisters starting from their childhood up to the present day, she added.
‘It is great news for all three of us,’ said Babita. ‘I hope the viewers would be interested to know titbits about our family.’
Champa, the youngest of the sisters, is also excited about the project. ‘My two elder sisters are my sources of strength. The documentary is indeed great news for me,’ she said.
Suchanda debuted as an actress in the 1960s with director Subhash Dutta’s Kagojer Nouka, and went on to star in a number of successful films like Behula and Jibon Theke Neya. She later ventured into direction and won the national award as director in 2005 for Hajar Bochor Dhore, a film based on a novel of Zahir Raihan.
Babita ruled Dhallywood in the 70s and 80s. She has worked in over 250 films so far, including Satyajit Ray’s Ashoni Sanket. Champa has also had her fair share of success. She acted in many films, notable among which are Padma Nadi’r Majhi, and Shankhaneel Karagar.
