Rituparno Ghosh was also a gay icon who lived his life in his own terms in recent years, often dressing boldly to boast his effeminate bearing. Of late, he had even started donning the hat of an actor and acted with Indraneil Sengupta in “Aarekti Premer Golpo” (Another Love Story) and with Deepti Naval in “Memories in March”. His last released film was Chitrangada where he also acted essaying the role of a gay dancer. He also hosted two celebrity chat shows, namely 'Ebong Rituporno' and 'Ghosh & Co'.

Sandesh: Yes! It’s all due to Lord Shiva’s (Bholenath) blessings. Actually my whole family is devout Shivaite bhakts. Last year my whole family including me went for lord’s darshan at Amarnath. My father harboured a dream to see me do a major role in a big TV show. He prayed to Lord Shiva and Shivji actually answered his prayers. I auditioned for Sanjay Leela Bhasali's show "Saraswati Chandra". I kept my fingers crossed and was not thinking of it at all. But one fine day I got a Call from Channel that I was selected for the show. You wouldn’t believe it - it happened on Maha Shivratri. When I got the news, there were tears in my eyes. I was on the top of the world that time. I immediately called my parents to give them this good news. Just told them that Bholenath accepted your prayers and I got a role in big show on Star Plus.
FTV: Films or Television. What do you prefer doing more?
FTV: How is the experience of working in a film vis-à-vis that of a serial.
FTV: Saraswati Chandra has suddenly placed you at the centre of a substantial stardom. How are you coping with the mobs, fans and stalkers?
Sandesh: All productions houses today are professional. But depending on the budgets allocated to certain projects, some production houses can offer to have lavish, stylish sets coupled with the best of treatment to its actors and stars. SLB’s Saraswati Chandra has the most expensive set in the TV World today. It’s absolutely beautifully designed, with lavish art and decoration to give it a perfect look. It reminds one of the lavish sets of Devdas. Since the production is lavish, they also lavishly care for the artists and crew members. I would also like to mention specially about our director Mr. Arvind Babbal sir. He is one of the best directors I have come across in the television fraternity. Under his tutelage, I have learnt a lot about the fine tunings of an actor as was needed for my character Nirav in Saraswati Chandra.
FTV: After a deaf and mute Barfi, Ranbir Kapoor is ready to do a full monty. Would you dare experiment something bold and / or that drastic?
FTV: It’s rumored that you are doing Eon Films next venture. Do throw some light on it.
FTV: Who’s your favourite actor / actress? If you could meet anyone in the world dead or alive who would it be and what would you say to them?
FTV: If you were stranded on a desert island, what three items would you take with you?
FTV: I thought you would like to get stranded with Anushka Sharma. Anyways. Finally, what are your future plans?
