I so wished I could have met her once. I will never forget the taste of her dhoklas. She used to religiously make it every month for the entire unit.”

Indraneil Sengupta did not share the screen with Rita in Nimki Mukhiya a lot but the actor shared that he cherishes the time spent with her. He said, “It’s really sad that she’s not with us anymore and I know everyone from Nimki Mukhiya is grieving. Unfortunately, I did not have too many scenes with her so I didn’t get to shoot with her regularly. But from whatever time I got to spend with her, I always felt she was an inherently happy person. Always full of positive energy, always smiling. She used to bring food from home and share it with other actors. Most importantly, she never had an air of being a senior actor. She used to mingle with even the youngest of the cast and was really funny and naughty. She will be missed by one and all on our set.”
