Konkona Sen Sharma is in Kolkata shooting for Bengali film Kadambari. Kadambari Devi was the wife of Jyotirindranath Tagore and nearly the same age as his brother Rabindranath Tagore. She inspired the poet with her creative feedback and comments.

Her relationship with Tagore was controversial and much-discussed. Kadambari committed suicide four months after Rabindranath Tagore married. According to the director Aniket Chattopadhyay, Konkona had the mixture of intelligence and vulnerability which was required of the character. Meanwhile, the actress is amused by the rumours that she has quit acting.
