TMC MP Mimi Chakraborty had in June last year, fallen ill with dehydration and stomach pain. This came after the 32-year-old was jabbed at a fake Covid vaccination drive in Kolkata. However, doctors weren’t initially sure whether her illness was a consequence of the fake dose she received or not.
Mimi, along with her fellow Bengali star Nusrat Jahan, who also turned a politician alongside, had in 2020 shot for movie SOS Kolkata. While Mimi is the Trinamool Congress MP from the Jadavpur constituency, Nusrat was elected to the Lok Sabha from the Basirhat seat on the party’s ticket.
Both Mimi Chakraborty and Nusrat Jahan had earlier shared screen space in Birsa Dasgupta’s Criss Cross.
