Konkona started her journey in June 2001 with the Bengali film “Ek Je Acchi Kanya”. She told PTI in an interview, “I really, don’t look back on my journey so far. I live in the present. It would not be fair to say that I am looking ahead. I’ve never been too ambitious, so I don’t look back.

It was while acting in films that Konkona made her directorial debut with the 2016 film “A Death in the Gunj”. When asked about the possibility of directing again, the actress said that she is currently busy with other work.
Konkona said, “Primarily I am an actress. I have been fortunate that I have been getting some good roles. So, I kept myself busy with it. And, I have a ten year old son. So, life is quite full.”
