Daughter of Bengali screen icon Suchitra Sen, who passed away early this year, the Oxford educated Sen sought blessings at a mosque as well as a temple in Metia Narayanpur village in Bankura district.

"I will try to be closer to the people of my constituency," she said while campaigning. The actress had earlier stated she was familiar with the area."Actually, I have done lot of films and jatras (folk theatres) in that part (Bankura) of the state,” she said.  

“I have travelled a lot. I used to break into songs whenever I saw the red soil of the region," she said, reacting to her nomination earlier.

However, the actress recently courted criticism for her comments regarding campaign preparations in the summer.

“I know people will accept me," she said. Sen will be fighting CPI-M heavyweight Basudeb Acharia in her constituency.
