Dhallywood’s new face Alisha Pradhan has started shooting for her second film Ontorongo yesterday at FDC. Her first film Bhul Jodi Hoy is now in post-production and both the films feature silver screen’s super star Emon in the lead role. In an interview with Dhaka Tribune, the aspiring actress informed she had also signed two more films.
Alisha began her journey in showbiz as a model and later she appeared in several TV serials. “Since I got the chance to act in films, I immediately quit working in TV. I really wanted to give my 100 percent to the silver screen,” said Alisha.
While talking about her orientation in acting, she revealed: “I had the opportunity to participate in a number of workshops in Bollywood. I am blessed with a supportive family who helped me take part in such workshops. I also had the chance to watch closely shootings of a number of Bollywood blockbuster movies.”
On the first day of Ontorongo’s shooting, Alisha shot for an item song titled Ami Diyasholai Chhule Agun Hoye Jai.
Ontorongo is a love story. The plot of the film revolves around a girl who has led a very rough life and leaves her step mother. She falls in love with a simple fellow, but after an accident she loses her memory. Her stepmother enters the scene and takes her home. To acquire all her property, Alisha’s stepmother tries to marry her off with a man, to whom she was having an affair with.
One day, Emon who was Alisha’s boyfriend, asked her mother to allow him to spend a single day with her. He wanted to bring back her memory and wants to give it a last push. From there on, the story leads to its climax through display of emotions and various other dimensions.
While talking about the new film, Alisha said: “I am really enjoying working in this film. My character is that of a simple girl, who is from a broken family. I learned a lot from my first film Bhul Jodi Hoy, which is directed by Chashi Nazrul Islam. My second film Ontorongo, is also directed by him. I hope they will appreciate my talent for real, as this role does not have the regular glitzy heroine look in most of the sequences. I hope my fans will love this film.”
