DEEPTI Naval might be one of our more gifted
actresses, but she certainly didn’t want to waste her time
or talent on the kind of mother-Bhabhi roles that were coming her
way in Bollywood.
So she gave her creativity new expression.
An exhibition of paintings, fairly well-received, a couple of years
ago. A book of poems published and another one on its way –
she read her work out at a mushaira with other well-known poets
in Mumbai last week.
Now, Naval’s in Delhi, inaugurating
an exhibition of photographs – taken by her. An inveterate
traveler, Naval takes her sketch pad, notebook and camera wherever
she goes. The results, as the accompanying photograph shows, are
more than good.
