She was supposed to make her Bollywood debut opposite Akshay Khanna in Kailash Surendranath's "Love You Hamesha" but unfortunately the film could not hit the turnstiles owing to differences between the producer and distributors.

Meanwhile Riya became a known face on the Indipop circuit featuring in quite a considerable number of music videos including Jagjit Singh-Asha Bhosle's 's "Jab Samne Tum" and "Kahin Kahin Se".

Her debut flick in Bollywood, N. Chandra's "Style" turned out to be an unexpected debacle. But the petite Riya Sen continues undeterred to carry forward the legacy left behind by her mom and grand mother Suchitra Sen

Raima Sen- Serene Beauty
Being the daughter of Moon Moon Sen and granddaughter of stalwart actress of the yesteryears Suchitra Sen, Raima Sen has immense expectations and responsibility on her shoulders. And this petite damsel handles it with absolute finesse. Apart from that, she also has tough competition from her talented and beautiful sister Riya Sen.

But she has no qualms about it, "She does her own thing and I do mine", she says. "We get along very well and every night we always discuss the happenings of the day," she adds. This movie freak has only one ambition ...that of becoming an actress. On being asked about her passion for cinema, pat comes the reply," I was always inclined towards acting as I used to accompany my mother to shootings."

She is aware of the expectations people have from her and so she has been very particular in choosing her roles. Raima adores her grandmother, from whom she has lots to learn and inspiration to draw. Raima's admiration for her grandma comes due to the strength and courage she had to do whatever she wanted in life.
The first opportunity to act came when she was in First Year B.A. and since then she has ever looked back. She has done major ad campaigns in the past like Boroplus, Sunsilk, Horlicks and Today's pens. But right now she is concentrating on her acting career and she is going great guns at that. Her debut performance in 'Godmother' has won her a lot of accolades.

She recalls her experience while shooting for the film and has some fond memories of it. "I was so nervous on the first day of the shoot, but Shabana Azmi made me feel absolutely comfortable. She's a great actress and I had a lot to learn from her," she says. So, it doesn't come as a surprise to know that her favourite movie of all time is the Shabana Azmi starrer, 'Masoom'. Tears welled up in her eyes when she first saw it and they still do.

Apart from Godmother, she has also done Kalpana Lajmi's 'Daman' and a Bengali film called 'Moina'. Her current projects involve a music video for singer Bali Bramhabhatt with Milind Soman and a Bengali film with director Rituparna Ghosh which is based on a book written by Rabindranath Tagore called 'Choker Bali'.
She balances her acting and modelling career very well with her studies. She is currently pursuing her B A from Calcutta University and she shuttles very often between Mumbai and Calcutta. Studies are a priority for her and she plans to be at least a graduate. She says that inspite of the celebrity status that her family enjoys; she and Riya were always exhorted to follow academics regularly. Her parents always felt that a strong academic background is absolutely imperative for success.

This pretty young thing has a skin care regime that consists of washing her face with a face wash twice a day (morning and night), drinking a lot of water and moisturising her face either before sleeping in the night or in the morning. She takes care of her beautiful, shining 'Sunsilk' hair by washing it at least twice a week, oiling it once a week and going for a deep conditioning treatment once in two weeks. She jogs everyday for ½ hour to keep herself fit.
