Who is Arpita Mukherjee?

As per the report, Mukherjee has had a mediocre rise in the past few years of her career. Her childhood was mostly spent in a middle-class neighbourhood of Belgharia in North 24 Parganas and later she moved to a posh Tollywood area in Kolkata wherein she stayed in an apartment in Diamond city – an upscale high-rise apartment in South Kolkata. Arpita claims to be an actor and a model. She initiated her career back in 2004 and after a period of struggle, she got a small role in the Bengali film ‘Mama Bhagne’ in 2010. “She has acted in three films I produced, but I haven’t kept in touch with her. Twelve years later, I am hearing about her and that too in the news,” said film director and producer Anup Sengupta.

Arpita not a part of TMC

The moment she got arrested the members of TMC denied the fact that she is connected to TMC. Kunal Gosh, general secretary of TMC has denied all the links with her saying “I want to reiterate (that) Arpita Mukherjee has no links with the TMC; she is not a party member. The party has nothing to do with her or the money recovered from her house. Many activists and people from various walks of life share stages at Trinamool Congress programmes but that don’t mean they are a part of TMC,” he told the media Sunday.
