Shakuntala has also been filmed a fair bit. Surprisingly MS Subbulakshmi dispensed with a blouse in the Tamil movie Sakunthalai (directed by the American, Ellis R Dungan). Other film depictions like V Shantaram’s also discard the blouse. All employ a number of flower garlands but none of course use the bark of Kalidasa’s opus.
