Though Rituparna has made a niche for herself in the world of films, surprisingly enough, when she stepped into the celluloid world, apart from her experience as a danseuse, she had not really received any formal training in acting. Unlike most actors and actresses, Ritu had never been involved in any way with drama and theatre. In her opinion, "people from a theatre background normally have a lot of mature acting skills and experience. The stage is an incredible training ground and it is the best medium when it comes to communicating with an audience. It is fulfilling for an actior to be on stage because you get an instant response from the audience. It teaches you how to be spontaneous, stage free, makes you comfortable with the lights and on the whole makes you technically very sound and gives you the inherent confidence to look up to something better”.
