Mimi,before starting off her acting career,did modelling for few days. She participated in Femina Miss India, and was in Top 20 (east).A very funny and interesting trivia - Femina was her first ever ramp without any proper grooming, and at that time she didnot have a penny 2 buy a ramp shoe,so had to borrow one.
She also walked the ramp for Chandrani Pearls.
Her acting debut was with Champion , that was aired on Akash Bangla and she played the role "Diya" a young girl of todays generation.Diya was a very snoopy and modern girl,who falls in love wit a guy named Aadi in her new neighbourhood. The guy had a childhood friend Emon.Diya was kinda jealous of her, and thn the story continues and spins around friends.Diya finally leaves Aadi and go abroad as she realizes whom he loves actually.
Her second project was every bengali's most favourite classic show "Gaaner Opaarey" ,produced by Ideas Creations. It was aired on Star Jalsha from 28 June,2010 to 16 April,2011.
Gaaner Opaarey , was the musical journey between two artists ,bohemian Gora and traditional Pupe and their love and in the whole process reinventing Tagore's "music" . The story revolved around a girl called Pupe from an orthodox Tagore-worshipping family and Gora, an extremely talented but care-free lad, who keeps on experimenting with Rabindra sangeet. Now what intrigued was : never the twain shall meet ?This TV show marks the beginning of a-year-long celebration of 150th birth anniversary of Kabiguru Rabindranath Tagore.
Gaaner Opaarey was for people who understand Rabindranath, his songs, his poems, his understanding of love and life.The show soon became favourite show of the educated and sophisticated bengalis accross the globe, since it was different from the run of the mill serials that was running in various TV channels and was thought provoking and gifted Rabindranath's teachings in a new way.It was path breaking and brought a new set of viewers back to TV and achieved "cult" status..The serial created a great awarness among the young generations about Tagore ,his philosophy and music.Most importantly it revolutionised Rabindrasangeet ,and made it popular amongst youth who earlier shunned away from Tagore songs thinking it to be out of fashion.
It was initially scripted by Rituparno Ghosh and later by Anuja Chattopadhyay and was directed by Joydeep Mukherjee.The music director was Debojyoti Mishra.
Gaaner Opaarey had outstanding cast , a blend of veteran actors and newcomers that included Mimi Chakraborty whose combined effort and great act made all the characters immortal .
Mimi potrayed the role of Pupe(one of the most critical ,yet a beautiful characterisation) , a very talented singer ,belonging to an orthodox Tagore worshipping family, who used to sing Rabindrasangeet in traditional form in concurrence with her family values.Pupe was considered to be the torch bearer of Sonar Tori's(name of the house she belonged to) tradition and culture. . Her insecurities due to the absence of her father from childhood, made her more cocooned and she lead a very sheltered and dependent life. She was being taught from her very childhood days, to lead a life the Sonar Tori's way and individual thought process was not allowed to develop in her.Sonar Tori throttled Pupe's own sense of living.Pupe could never think independently what was 'right' or 'wrong' for her ,neither had the power to judge and decide on her own.This brainwashed girl , after series of fights with Gora, and resistence from within , fell in love with him,a very talented bohemian lad who dared to experiment and sing Rabindrasangeet in his own way.But it was pre-decided by her family that she was going to get married to Prodipto,a sophisticated cultured gentleman. After getting betrayed by her grandfather on Maghotsav day, Pupe finally revolts and after fighting all alone with the whole society , gets back her love, establishes herself as young independent girl of today's generation.Mimi was absolutely phenomenal in such a complicated role ,which had various shades of timidity,indecisiveness,stubbornness, insecurity ,egoism,introvert nature at the same time had shades of simplicity, innocence, romanticism ,and in later stage ,shades of anger , betrayal , agony, pain ,suffering, then finally the great rebellion, retaliation and fighting back..Pupe grew from a timid introvert dependent girl to today's confident, strong independent personality and the journey was beautifully potrayed by Mimi.Mimi was exceptionally brilliant in all the emotions and made Pupe iconic.
