Mambi and the Forest Fire

Actor, activist, newly minted children's author, Nandana Dev Sen moves as easily between three professions as she does between three continents.

Nandana Dev Sen doesn't believe in doing anything halfheartedly. Whether it is writing a new children's book, Mambi and The Forest Fire, talking about child rights, or dancing sinuously with Randeep Hooda clad only in body paint and loads of confidence for Rang Rasiya, 2014, the actor, writer and activist has always put herself out there.

"I'm very close to both my parents, and they have always placed a lot of trust in me. Right from my childhood I never felt any kind of pressure about being their child-not just because I was always a good student, but because my family (including mygrandmothers) gave me a great deal of freedom and emotional support. Because both Ma and Baba are trailblazers in their own way, they had faith in all my unconventional decisions, and instilled a great deal of confidence in me. I've changed my life around several times and, miraculously, never felt scared of failure,'' she says.
