The artist’s muse Sugandha is played by Nandana Sen. On his choice of actress Nandana Sen, Ketan Mehta said, “To me, she was the perfect woman to play the muse of an artist who sparked off debates about censorship of art. She has that child-woman quality, which was so much a part of Sugandha’s personality.”
