Kabita is a 1977 Bengali-language Indian feature film directed by Bharat Shamsher starring Mala Sinha in the lead role. The film is a remake of the Tamil classic film Aval Oru Thodar Kathai (1974) where Kamal Haasan had a supporting role as a neighbor. He played the same role in the Bengali remake, thus his only foray into Bengali film industry. He also acted in the Telugu remake Anthuleni Katha (1976) with Jayaprada, playing a different role as her boss and suitor. He also did a guest role in another remake, the Kannada film Benkiyalli Aralida Hoovu (1983) with his real-life niece Suhasini playing the lead role. The only remake he didn’t appear in is the Hindi film Jeevan Dhaara (1982) starring Rekha.
