Family members of Dhulamoni Hembram, too, are not too comfortable of her acting in the films. Dhulamoni, who is the first year student of Arts at Barabazar District College, says though she enjoyed working for three days at the film's set, she couldn't think of taking it ahead as a career option. "My brothers didn't not approve of it much. They think it is not a good profession, especially for the girls," she says.
For 30-year-old Mangali Mandi, "there is nothing wrong in it". "It's a windfall gain for many to earn some extra money in an area where most of the people live in extreme penury and have hardly anything to eat," she adds. She lives in a joint family of 18 members and works as Gram Panchayat Resource Person. This was not the first time that she got an opportunity to work in a film. Earlier, she had worked with an Austrian filmmaker, who came to shoot in Purulia. "I got Rs 1,400 for a day last time and this time for the 12-day shoot, I was paid Rs 3,600 and food. I was enthralled to see the filmstars," she says.
Gautam Ghose terms his experience of working with the tribals as "enriching and wonderful".
"These people are very tolerant and much more civilised than us, for they know the secret of sustainable development," he told The Indian Express and added that the region has a lot of latent potential.
