Raima Sen, who plays a sex worker in her upcoming film “Bombay Diaries”, shot in Sonagachi, considered to be Asia’s largest red light district.

She plays a sex worker from Kolkata who aspires to be an actress.

“Sonagachi is a very difficult place to shoot since there are groups of local goons who do not entertain such activities. We had to do guerrilla shoot in spite of having all the permissions,” director K D Satyam said.

“I had seen a documentary on the lives of sex workers. There are hundreds of multi-story buildings housing brothels. We knew we had to shoot the entire film at real locations so for Raima’s part Sonagachi was the apt place,” he said.

Satyam has earlier written the acclaimed children’s film “Gattu”.

“Bombay Diaries”, starring Ashish Vidyarthi, Karuna Pandey, Vineet Singh and the debutante Salim Diwan, will release on February 26.
