Aideu Handique- the root!
A blog on Assamese actress can never be completed without the mention of Aideu Handique- the first Assamese film actress. She acted in film Joymoti in 1935 directed by Jyoti Prasad Agarwala, another legend of the Assamese film, music and literature industry. The unfortunate matter is that, Aideu never acted again after this film. Reason for this was the backward mindset of public at that time, who troubled her a lot saying she violated a cultural taboo, that a girl can’t work in movies and that how one can address someone to be Bongohordeu (husband) even though it was just for the screen! In 1985 at the time of golden jubilee celebration of Assamese Cinema, her role was acknowledged. Now we all recall her name with great respect.
The list for the top 10 most beautiful Assamese actress doesn’t really end with only 10 names. With the increases of new generation Assamese actresses, the list is getting longer day by day. Here I have covered some of my favourites. Let me know if you have found your favourite one too in my list!
