“People would often stare at Raima Sen maybe because of the neckline of her outfit. She would fling herself all over me and exclaim, ‘In pe nazar mat daalo, yeh mera hai’” – Onir : Bollywood News


Onir came into the limelight after his first film, My Brother Nikhil (2005), got immense critical acclaim. However, many are not aware that he had worked extensively for more than a decade on many projects before he made his debut as a director. One such venture was Kalpana Lajmi’s Daman (2001), starring Raveena Tandon, Sanjay Suri and Raima Sen. His bond with Sanjay Suri is quite known as both later collaborated on many films and became close friends. In his recently released memoir, ‘I Am Onir & I Am Gay’, co-written by his sister Irene Dhar Malik, Onir opened up about his bond with Raima Sen.

"People would often stare at Raima Sen maybe because of the neckline of her outfit. She would fling herself all over me and exclaim, 'In pe nazar mat daalo, yeh mera hai'" – Onir

Onir wrote that though he was a decade older than her, she treated him as if he was of the same age. He also remarked, “She reminded me of her grandmother Suchitra Sen – she had those same dreamy eyes, that beautiful smile”.

Onir then talks about the crazy adventures he has had with her. He revealed that when they both would roam in Mumbai in an autorickshaw, people would often stare at Raima Sen possibly due to the neckline of her outfit. She would, however, pretend that people are staring at Onir and her. She would fling herself over him and say “In pe nazar mat daalo, yeh mera hai”!

Onir also became good friends with Raima’s sister, Riya Sen, who’s also an actress. He wrote that one day, they all three went drinking. The Sen sisters pretended to have vodka shots but actually had water. Onir had no idea about it and he had too many shots. Hence, he alone got sloshed.

Since Onir was heavily drunk, Raima and Riya Sen got him home. This is when their father walked into the living room, where the filmmaker was lying on the sofa. Onir wrote, “I loudly asked what this strange man was doing in the living room so late at night!”

Finally, Onir stated that “Every time Raima wanted to get rid of the man in her life, she would flirt with me excessively in front of him”. He ended the chapter by stating that even today; she is as beautiful, feisty and naughty, as she was when he first met her.
