Mishti is now widely accepted as the new discovery of Subhash Ghai. It may however be noted that Mishti has been an actress for some years now. She has done a few Bengali films, a bit part in a Hindi film ‘Strings of Passion,’ and many other regional ventures.

Mishti’s (Indrani Chakraborty)  Work in Bengali films

Mishti made her debut as an actress in the Bengali movie ‘Bidehir Khonje Rabindranath.’ It was directed by Sanghamitra Chaudhuri. Mishti also portrayed the character of Bengali actor Prosenjit Chatterjee’s daughter in the Bengali film “Porichoi.” She is fondly called Mishti, a Bengali sweet, by her Bengali film fans.

Mishti and Kaanchi

In the film Kaanchi, Mishti is playing the role of a courageous village belle. Karthik is her lover and the male lead in this romance saga. It has been reported that Ghai, the ultimate showman, has serenely projected the main theme of the film along with mesmerizing music and dance. As per speculations, the movie is expected to release in mid or latter half of 2014.

Speculations about the launch of Mishti by Subhash Ghai commenced when Mishti was shooting for Porichoi along with Prosenjit in Newcastle, England. Prosenjit was very surprised by this bit of news. He could not understand how Mishti became a Ghai discovery and how the film Kaanchi became her debut film, when he had just finished shooting a movie with her. He found the untruth to be quite befuddling.

How Subash Ghai chose Mishti for Kaanchi

Subhash Ghai is known in the Hindi Film Industry as a man who likes to launch beautiful new faces. He has been instrumental in finding gems like Madhuri Dixit, Jackie Shroff, Manisha Koirala, Meenakshi Seshadri, and Mahima Chaudhary. Hence it came as no surprise when he decided to look for a fresh new face as the female lead after conceiving the plot and screenplay of his new spectacle ‘Kaanchi.’

The auditions commenced and after screening about 400 girls, Ghai hit the bulls-eye with Mishti. But this was not the happy end for Mishti. She had to go for many more screen tests before being finalized as the female protagonist in Kaanchi. Ghai asserts that Mishti exuded his perception of ‘Kaanchi’ from every pore in her body and that is what made her the right choice.He further goes on to state that Mishti is amongst the most talented new faces that he has ever launched over many decades of his career. She is indeed a future superstar! He was vowed and amazed by the electric performance of Mishti in the movie.

Mishti could hardly contain herself when she got the news about her selection as the main actress in Kaanchi. With a big smile on her face, Mishti often recalls about the joyous episode. She was in England shooting for the Bengali film with Prosenjit. That was when she got ‘the call.’ She was so overjoyed that she said yes without any second thoughts. Mishti asserts that this spur-of-the-moment decision of hers was correct and the best of her career so far.

After the hype and the unnecessary controversies waned, Ghai released the first poster of Kaanchi. Mishti looks drop-dead gorgeous on it. She feels, acts, and looks like a film star, and the stunning poster only reflects this fact.


Mishti is a 22 year old, 5’5″ tall, beautiful single lady.

Her favorite film is Ghai-directed ‘Taal’ which starred Aishwarya Rai, Anil Kapoor, and Akshaye Khanna. She loved and continues to love the film because of the mellifluous and haunting music, the emotional relationships, the intricate storytelling, and the captivating screen presence of the female lead.

Nobody, not even Mishti, can deny the fact that she is trying to garner additional attention and adulation by promoting herself as a newbie actress. The debate about whether she can be considered as a Ghai discovery continues to this day. Mishti’s fans remain unperturbed by all of this. They remain captivated by the stunning beauty of Mishti and her honeyed name. In just a few weeks, Mishti has become the center of attention. She has passed on the added mileage to her movie Kaanchi. Both Ghai and Mishti have almost completed what they had set out to do so many months ago. Both must be very happy now!


Mishti likes to keep her personal life private and not much is known about her boyfriend. But sources say that  her relationship with the male lead of the film, Kartik Tiwari, was quite evident. Both were seen spending quality time with each other during the shoot, even share the same food, and then he would drop her back to home, after the shoot was over. Kartik and Mishti of course, did not comment on the story.
