Bhubaneswar: Be it a bubbly character in ‘Love Station’, innocent girl in ‘Abhay’ or ultra-modern in ‘Kabula Barabula’ Elina Samantaray has carved a niche in Odia cine industry. After successfully working with the leading male actors of Odia cine industry she is ready to romance Sabyasachi Mishra in Sarthak’s upcoming ‘Tokata Fasigala’, a tentative title.
The film, directed by Ramesh Rout, is being made in Odia and Bengali. While Elina plays the lead, Papu Pom Pom and Lipsa Mishra are also essaying prominent roles.

With good looks, natural acting and talent in dancing, Elina has become a most sought after heroine since 2015.

Some of the new girls coming to Ollywood are also very talented. This is a good sign,” she noted. “The success of ‘Love Station’ is a landmark in my career.
