By Express News ServiceBENGALURU: Actor-director Rajni Basumatary’s movie Jwlwi - The Seed garnered a lot of attention at the 12th Bengaluru International Film Festival (BIFFES).
The film, in Bodo, a dialect used by a tribe in Assam, stirred much interest owing to few filmmakers who make films in the language.
The director, in her late 40s, always wanted to be an actor and grew up watching Madhuri Dixit and Sanjay Dutt.
During that time, there was hardly any roles for those from the North-East, so my dream got shelved,” says Basumatary.
