She was born to Sumit Chatterjee & Surashree Chatterjee. She has a sister called Tupur Chatterjee, a twin. Hrishikesh Mukherjee, a famous film director, was her maternal grandfather.
Twins Tapur and Tupur were once considered to be the upcoming little twinkle-twinkle stars, and both of them were hoping to work in a film. J P Dutta, who wanted to introduce the twins to Sarod Maestro Amjad Ali Khan’s two sons, Ayaan and Amaan Ali Khan, announced the film. But the two heroines were dumped by J P Dutta, so they couldn’t get noticed in any films.
However, she was a student of commercial art and a recipient of the Presidents’ Award for poster design when she came to Tupur Chatterjee. She took up a career in Modeling as a personal choice. When she was studying at college, she used to get offers for modeling. She has also walked many ramps with the modeling world’s leading designers. In order to avoid too much exposure, she was also very selective in her assignments.
Both sisters remained far ahead of any completion in this modeling world, where one will outshine another celebrity. She was aware of her health and saw her mother as a woman with good skin. Why Tupur was not considered in any Bollywood movies, when there is now a huge range of model-turned actresses, is still not known.
Tupur Chatterjee is married to Sonu Shewakramani, a Dubai businessman who has a company in Lagos, Nigeria, and the parents of the groom live in Dubai. Sabyasachi Mukherjee and Ritu Kumar are her favorite designers. Being a supermodel, she lives every day in this glamorous world. Even though she has never had a movie break, she feels that people get into movies because of the glamour, money, and attention she has now in her domain.
