Sree Parabat (right, front) along with director Sushil Mukherjee, inimitable Kanan Devi, actress Sandhya Roy and actor Biswajit, during the maharat (ritual commencement of film shooting) of Sree Parabat's novel Ami Sirajer Begum. This novel is based on the life of Siraj-ud-daula, the last nabab of Bengal, who was defeated in 1757 by Robert Clive through betrayal and trickery, thus beginning a 200 year British rule in India.
