Koel Mallick is the daughter of the veteran Bengali actor Ranjit Mallick. She made her debut as an actor while still in college with Nater Guru (2003). Though she started off playing arm candy to the film’s hero, she slowly made a name for herself by choosing films which allowed her to showcase her talent. Films such as the dark and brooding Hemlock Society (2012), the supernatural fantasy Arundhati (2014), drama Chhaya O Chhobi (2017), romcom Ghare & Baire (2018) and detective film Mitin Mashi (2019) established her as an versatile actor who could fit into any genre. She married producer Nispal Singh Rane in 2013. They had been in a relationship for seven years before deciding to tie the knot. In May 2020, at the height of the pandemic and the lockdown, she became mother to son Kabir. She’s been taking it easy since then, revelling in the challenges of motherhood and rediscovering her own childhood in the process. Excerpts from an interesting tete-atete with the Bengali beauty
