After winning hearts with her adorable and hilarious act as Moushumi on Zee TV’s Yeh Teri Galiyan, PRO turned actress Lopamudra Das will be seen in director Nagesh Kukunoor's web series City of Dreams season 2 , streaming on Hotstar - Jyothi Venkatesh
Lopamudra considers herself lucky to have got this opportunity to work with National Award-winning filmmaker Nagesh Kukunoor .
She was also seen in director Subhash Kapoor's web series ' Maharani' opposite Huma Qureshi on Sony LIV .
Lopamudra was quite nervous as well as excited to work with her favourite director. It was like a dream come true for her to accept a news anchor's role in the political drama set.
Now, this is a happy coincidence that Lopamudra was a news anchor in Kolkata. She has worked with popular television news channels in Kolkata and Delhi for several years before she moved to Mumbai .
"Since I was a news anchor and I didn't have difficulty to understand what they were looking for , that's why when I had been auditioned for this character at the last moment I was quite confident and got selected immediately but I had to audition for this role for more than once and had to wait for almost a year for the shoot day because there was a pandemic ' . she said,
Lopamudra can’t stop praising the director Nagesh Kukunoor. “I consider myself lucky to have got the opportunity to work with a director like him so early in my career,” she says.
Her acting career in Mumbai film and television industry started in 2018 with the TV show Mariam Khan Reporting Live for star plus.
However, it was Yeh Teri Galiyan for Zee TV that catapulted her to fame. She became a popular face on TV for her role as Moushmi Mazumder and her comic timing was well appreciated.
For the uninitiated, Lopamudra is a professional dancer and had also acted in several Bengali TV shows and films in Kolkata before making Mumbai her home.
She has also featured in advertisements, short films, and Bengali films before her stint in Mumbai. In fact, she is a well-known celebrity publicist both in Kolkata and Mumbai
“I have been into acting and dancing since childhood but never took this art form seriously.
I consider myself blessed that I am getting many opportunities now . I have been an established name as a publicist for the past decade, but I also want to make my mark as an actor,” signs off Lopamudra.
