Actress-producer Ena Saha has no time to respite. After Yash’s dissociation with the Cheena Badaam team, Ena and director Shieladitya Moulik have been busy firefighting before the release of the film on June 10. Yash has been working with Ena Saha’s production house Jarek Entertainment for years. After working in SOS Kolkata with his beau Nusrat Jahan and Mimi Chakraborty in 2020, Cheena Badaam was his second association with Ena. Yash and Nusrat are also part of her next film, Mastermoshai Apni Kichu Dakhenni, which is also directed by Shieladitya. In a candid chat with OTTPlay, Ena talked about her firefighting, the plans for her next project and her rumoured tiff with Nusrat.

“Yash is a friend and his sudden departure is definitely saddening. But right now my priority is releasing Cheena Badaam the way it was planned. You see, a lot of money and professionals are involved in making a film. Right now, I cannot afford to jeopardise that because of my emotional reasons. A very special friend of mine tells me, ‘Emotion doesn’t work in business’. Ironically, Yash’s character Rishav says the same dialogue to my character. And right now, I have no option but to follow the same,” said Ena.

In the film, Ena plays the character of Rishav’s girlfriend, who is simple, emotional and the girl next door. She believes in everything that is based on relationships and prioritised love above money.

On June 5, in a social media statement, Yash dissociated himself with the production house Jarek Entertainment and director Shieladitya Moulik of Cheena Badaam over ‘creative differences’. According to several media speculations, it was Nusrat who expressed displeasure over Yash’s closeness with Ena. Refuting the claim, Ena said, “Nusratdidi have been very nice and kind to me. The last time we met while discussing the promotion plans with Yash, she appeared to be very sweet. Also if she had a problem with me she wouldn’t have promoted the film at her events. While I heard the rumour, I believe it to be baseless.”

Meanwhile, Ena is also worried about the post-production of her next project, Shieladitya’s political drama, Mastermoshai Apni Kichu Dakhenni. While the shooting of the film was over, the post-production, including dubbing, is still left. “I look forward to solving the problem. After the release of this film, I will meet Yash and clarify the differences. I hope things will settle down,” Ena said.
