Bidita Bag (WBRi File Photo)Nov 25 (Washington Bangla Radio): "X: Past Is Present" actress Bidita Bag (WBRi Interview) says she was so career-oriented and busy with her life as a model that she could hardly enjoy fun moments in college.

"Today I feel I have made it big as a model but somewhere deep down I regret I couldn't live my college life to the fullest and couldn't enjoy it," Bidita said during a visit to a college recently.

The 2015 collaborative Indian movie "X: Past is Present" is directed by 11 directors - Abhinav Shiv Tiwari, Anu Menon, Nalan Kumarasamy, Hemant Gaba, Pratim D. Gupta, Qaushiq Mukherjee (aka Q), Raja Sen, Rajshree Ojha, Sandeep Mohan, Sudhish Kamath and Suparn Verma. Bidita plays a young actress in Abhinav Shiv Tiwari's "Audition" sharing screen space with Rajat Kapoor and Pooja Ruparel.

Internationally acclaimed for her powerful performances in serious socio-political films, Bidita's impressive filmography includes From Sydney With Love, Kagojer Nouka, Icche, Mukti, Target Kolkata and many more.

Bidita studied Economics at Jadavpur University in Kolkata but got involved with modeling assignments quite early. She would often go for her assignments straight from college, and thus kept busy throughout the day.

"India's best bands would perform at my college but I couldn't ever witness that. Neither did I act in plays... but strangely I'm an actress today. And I also missed an important part of every girl's life - college romances," she quipped.

Having accomplished significant success as a model in the fashion world, as an advertisement model for some brands, and now as a talented actress in Bengali and Hindi films, Bidita's message for students is: "There is stress during college to set up our base for our career."

"We always live in the future, but we need to start living in the present. You need to make your college life interesting and enjoy it fully. This time will never come back, so enjoy it so much that you don't have to regret it later on like I am now", she adds.
