    She made her film debut at the age of 20 in the 1964 film “Anustup Chanda” directed by Pijush Bose. Before releasing the film she changed her name to Anjana to Arati. Right from the first film she became popular. Her acting talent was praised not only by the audience but also by the critic. She became one of the major heroines of Uttam Kumar. She and Uttam Kumar gave major hits like “Chowringhee”, “Kokhono Megh”, “Nayika Sambad”, “Roudra Chhaya”, “Raj Drohi”. At a certain time of her career when critics predicted she wouldn’t be successful without Uttam Kumar as hero, she paired with Soumitra Chattopadhyay in “Mahashweta” and it was highly acclaimed.
