Early life[edit]

Konkona Sen Sharma was born on 3 December 1979.[4] Her father Mukul Sharma was a science writer and journalist and her mother Aparna Sen is an actress and film director. She has an elder sister, Kamalini Chatterjee.[5] Sen Sharma's maternal grandfather, Chidananda Dasgupta, was a film critic, scholar, professor, writer and one of the co-founders of the Calcutta Film Society. Her grandmother Supriya Dasgupta was a cousin of legendary modern Bengali poet Jibanananda Das.

Sen Sharma graduated from St. Stephen's College, Delhi with a Bachelor's degree in English in 2001. She was a student of the Modern High School for Girls.[6]

Career[edit]

Initial work, debut and breakthrough (2000–02)[edit]

Sen Sharma made her debut as a child artist in the Bengali film Indira (1983). In 2001, she made her adult debut in the Bengali film Ek Je Aachhe Kanya, in which she played a negative character. This was followed by a role in Rituparno Ghosh's acclaimed film Titli (2002), opposite Mithun Chakraborty and her mother Aparna Sen. These films earned her critical acclaim and helped her gain notice in Bengali cinema.

In 2002, she achieved her breakthrough in Indian cinema with the English-language drama Mr. and Mrs. Iyer, directed by Aparna Sen opposite Rahul Bose. The film told the story of two strangers during a fateful bus journey amidst the carnages of a communal strife in India. It performed moderately well at the box-office, but earned widespread critical acclaim from domestic and international critics upon release. Sen Sharma's performance as a Tamil housewife and her mastery of the accent received universal acclaim and earned her the National Film Award for Best Actress.[7] Her performance was later included in the 2010 issue of the "Top 80 Iconic Performances" by Filmfare.[8]

"What's special about her performance as Meenakshi Iyer is not the effort she put into it as much as the apparent lack of it. [...] Be it her squabbling with the urbane photographer Jehangir Chaudhary or her gently reprimanding him about how her name is pronounced (It's Mee-naa-kshi not Minakshi) or even when she is screaming at her infant, you believe it's Meenakshi you´ve met. And therein lies the key to her iconic performance."

Success and stardom (2005–10)[edit]

In 2005, Sen Sharma starred in Madhur Bhandarkar's drama Page 3, which saw her portray the role of a smart journalist who steps into the world of Page 3 culture media and journalism in the city of Mumbai. Upon release, the film received high critical acclaim, and emerged as a moderate commercial success at the box-office.[10] Page 3 helped Sen Sharma gain notice in Hindi cinema and earned her the Zee Cine Award for Best Female Debut. The same year, she also starred alongside Waheeda Rehman, Shabana Azmi and Bose in her mother's directorial 15 Park Avenue, which saw her play a mentally-ill woman, which also earned her critical praise, despite the film's commercial failure.[11]

Sen Sharma was next offered the lead role in Mira Nair's Hollywood drama The Namesake (2007), but owing to clashing dates with other films, she could not commit to the project.[12] Following a critically-acclaimed performance as a mentally-ill woman in the drama 15 Park Avenue (2006), she portrayed a middle-aged village woman who unknowlingly becomes a pawn in her husband's scheme in Vishal Bhardwaj's crime drama Omkara (2006). Starring an ensemble cast of Ajay Devgn, Kareena Kapoor, Saif Ali Khan, Vivek Oberoi and Bipasha Basu alongside Sen Sharma, the film opened to widespread critical acclaim, with high praise for her performance. However, due to its dark theme and strong language which kept away family audiences, it emerged as a moderate commercial successat the box-office.[13] Her performance in the film earned her the National Film Award and the Filmfare Award for Best Supporting Actress. Her next release was the suspense thriller Deadline: Sirf 24 Ghante (2006), which was a critical and commercial disaster. The same year, she made her directorial debut with an 18-minute Bengali short film titled Naamkoron (Naming Ceremony) for the Kala Ghoda Film Festival.[14] Following this, she starred alongside Prosenjit Chatterjee in the Bengali drama Dosar, directed by Rituporno Ghosh. The film premiered at several international film festivals and emerged as a sleeper hit at the box-office. Her performance in the film won her the Best Actress award at the New York Indian Film Festival.[15]

She began 2007 by portraying a street prostitute in the noir film Traffic Signal which marked her second collaboration with Bhandarkar.[16] Her performance, like the film, earned positive reviews; however, it emerged as a commercial failure at the box-office.[17] She next starred alongside an ensemble cast including Shilpa Shetty, Kay Kay Menon, Irrfan Khan and Kangana Ranaut in Anurag Basu's urban drama Life in a... Metro. The film depicted the lives of nine different individuals in Mumbai, and dealt with themes such as extramarital affairs, sanctity of marriage, commitment phobia and love. It opened to widespread critical acclaim, with Sen Sharma's performance as a young and insecure woman receiving high praise. Despite expectations, the film emerged as a surprise commercial success at the box-office, grossing over ₹250 million worldwide.[18][19] Life in a... Metro earned her a second consecutive Filmfare Award for Best Supporting Actress.

In the latter half of 2007, Sen Sharma starred in two films under the Yash Raj Films banner – the women-centric drama Laaga Chunari Mein Daag and the musical drama Aaja Nachle. She noted her excitement toward these two projects as these were the first films in which she had to lip sync for songs. Pradeep Sarkar's Laaga Chunari Mein Daag saw her star alongside an ensemble cast of Jaya Bachchan, Rani Mukerji, Anupam Kher, Kunal Kapoor and Abhishek Bachchan. The film tackled themes of duty, sacrifice and morality. She portrayed the role of a young girl who moves to Mumbai only to find her older sister moonlighting as an escort unbeknownst to their family, and helps her sister redeem herself. It opened to mixed reviews from critics upon release, however Sen Sharma's performance received praise, thus earning a third nomination for the Filmfare Award for Best Supporting Actress. Anil Mehta's Aaja Nachle, which marked the comeback of Madhuri Dixit, saw Sen Sharma in the supporting role of a tomboy. The film received mixed-to-negative reviews, but praise was directed to her performance, with Rajeev Masand from CNN-IBN noting that her performance in the film as being "...nothing short of fantastic. Her greatest strength is that she isn't afraid of making a fool of herself and she doesn't worry about being laughed at. As a result, her performance in Aaja Nachle is fearless and uninhibited."[20] Laaga Chunari Mein Daag emerged as a below-average grosser, while Aaja Nachle emerged as a commercial failure at the box-office.[21][22]

In 2008, she starred in the critically and commercially unsuccessful romantic comedy Dil Kabaddi. She next appeared in a short film (How Can It Be?) directed by Mira Nair for a film project called 8, which was screened at several film festivals in 2008 before having a theatrical release.[23]

In 2009, her first film appearance was in the low-budget English-language film The President Is Coming, directed by Kunaal Roy Kapur. The film explores a day in the life of six contestants who will stop at nothing as the US President is coming to town, with Sen Sharma playing one of the six contestants who will represent New India in front of the President. It received positive reviews from critics upon release, with particular praise for Sen Sharma's performance. Nikhat Kazmi from The Times of India wrote, "Performance-wise, it's the uptight and complex-ridden Sen Sharma who walks away with laurels and laughs even as the film takes a healthy snigger at the desi self."[24]

Sen Sharma next starred in Zoya Akhtar's directorial debut, the drama Luck by Chance, leading an ensemble cast alongside Farhan Akhtar.[25] The film saw her portray a starlet trying to make it big in the Hindi film industry. It opened to widespread critical acclaim upon release, with high praise directed towards Sen Sharma's performance; however, the film emerged as an underwhelming success at the box-office.[26][27][28] She followed it up with Ayan Mukerji's directorial debut, the coming-of-age comedy-drama Wake Up Sid opposite Ranbir Kapoor. The film told the story of a careless rich college brat who is taught the value of owning up to responsibility by an aspiring writer from Kolkata, the latter portrayed by Sen Sharma. It received widespread critical acclaim upon release, with high praise directed towards her performance.[29] Taran Adarsh of Bollywood Hungama wrote, "Sen Sharma is natural to the core and the best part is, she's so effortless. Here's another winning performance from this incredible performer!"[30] The New York Times wrote, "Ms. Sen Sharma has made a specialty of characters like Aisha: independent urban women, whose dreams involve careers as well as love. Her Aisha is a nuanced creation — ambitious, sympathetic, believable — and Mr. Mukerji, making his directing debut, is right to let her run away with the film."[31] The film emerged as a commercial success at the box-office, grossing ₹471 million worldwide.[32]

In 2010, Sen Sharma starred as a working woman in Ashwani Dheer's comedy Atithi Tum Kab Jaoge alongside Ajay Devgan and Paresh Rawal.[33] and as a lawyer in Neeraj Pathak's Right Yaa Wrong. The former emerged as a critical and commercial success, while the latter emerged as a disaster critically and commercially.[34][35] The same year, she finished shooting for Rituparno Ghosh's unreleased comedy Sunglass and Vinay Shukla's comedy-drama Mirch, a critical and commercial failure.

Later career and expansion into direction and OTT (2011–present)[edit]
