Nandita Das est une actrice et une réalisatrice indienne née le 7 novembre 1969 à Delhi en Inde.

Elle accède à la notoriété avec Fire (1996) de Deepa Metha, film qui traite de l'homosexualité féminine et suscite de vives réactions en Inde. Elle poursuit sa carrière tournant aussi bien en anglais, hindi, bengali, tamoul, telougou, ourdou, marathi, oriya ou kannada. Ses convictions l'amènent à choisir fréquemment des films au sujet fort comme dans Earth (Deepa Metha, 1998) sur la sanglante partition de l'Inde, Bawandar (Jag Mundhra, 2000) relatant l'impossibile quête de justice d'une femme de basse caste victime d'un viol collectif, Kannathil Muthamittal (Mani Ratnam, 2002) sur fond de guerre civile au Sri Lanka ou encore Provoked (Jag Mundhra, 2007) où elle soutient une femme condamnée pour avoir tué son mari qui la maltraitait depuis des années. Ses interprétations lui permettent de recevoir des prix à plusieurs reprises.

En 2008, Nandita Das se tourne vers la réalisation avec Firaaq dans lequel elle décrit les conséquences dramatiques des violences au Gujarat en 2002. Projeté dans de nombreux festivals internationaux, le film recueille plusieurs récompenses.

En 2008, elle est faite Chevalier des Arts et des Lettres. Par ailleurs, de 2009 à 2012, elle est présidente de la Children’s Film Society, India, organisation fondée en 1955 et chargée de produire des films pour enfants.

Nandita Das est la fille du peintre Jatin Das et de l'écrivaine Varsha Das. Elle fait ses études à New Delhi et est diplômée en géographie et en travail social. De 2002 à 2009, elle est mariée à Saumya Sen avec lequel elle fonde Leapfrog, agence qui réalise des films publicitaires socialement responsables. Après avoir divorcé, elle épouse l'industriel Subodh Maskara avec lequel elle a un fils, Vihaan, né en 2011.


In 2002, Das married Saumya Sen. The couple began Leapfrog, an advertising organisation geared towards making socially conscious ad films. The couple divorced in 2009. After dating Subodh Maskara, an industrialist based out of Mumbai for a couple of months, she married him on 2 January 2010 and moved to Mumbai. Das and Maskara had a baby boy named Vihaan. Das has remained an atheist throughout her life.
