This is the second movie of Barsha with director Anupam, who is also his better half (husband) in life. About working with Anupam, Barsha said that Anupam was a producer during her first movie, Tulasi Apa, which was directed by Anupam’s father, Amiya Patnaik.

She said that he is very knowledgeable and has good communication skill to manage people and groups, which are very important skills to be a director.

Born in Paradip, Barsha completed her MBA from Biju Patnaik University of Technology. She got her break while working in an IT company in Hyderabad. Upon asked by director Amiya Patnaik, who is a good friend of Barsha’s father, she said that she sent some sample clips for their audition, and a few days later, they called her to say that she would be playing the role of Tulasi Munda, a noted Odia Social activist.

Barsha met Anupam during the shooting of Tulasli Apa. Barsha’s father and Anupam’s father were old friends. During the shooting, Anupam used to help her a lot, and thus, she started connecting, and after that, everything came together.

At present, Barsha has been working with the Amiya Patnaik productions, on which Barhsa said, “I would love to work with others, but at present, the industry still needs a lot of improvisation.”
