Bangladeshi actor Reekita Nondine Shimu won the Best Actress award in Festival de Saint -Jean-de-Luz, in France on Saturday. Shimu received the award, which is also known as Prix d’Interprétation Féminine or Women's Interpretation Award, for her work in Rubaiyat Hossain's Made in Bangladesh

"I returned to Bangladesh yesterday (Saturday) from London. As soon as I reached I heard the news. Definitely it feels very good. Although, the award has not reached my hand yet," she said.

Shimu was in London to represent "Made in Bangladesh" in the BFI London Film Festival. Following the screenings of Made in Bangladesh last Monday and Tuesday, which were both sold out, Shimu answered questions on behalf of the film's team in the Q&A sessions. 

In Made in Bangladesh, Shimu plays the role of a ready-made garment (RMG) worker, who is also named Shimu. Her character is based on a woman who is an actual worker in the RMG industry, and also helped the team out with dialogues and other important details. 

Made in Bangladesh depicts the struggles and successes of female RMG workers in Bangladesh, and explores how the RMG industry has helped to empower women and provided them socio-economic independence. 

Shimu also co-starred in Rubaiyat Hossain's previous film Under Construction which has won numerous awards.

Shimu informed reporters that she had finished shooting for a West Bengal film, but did not reveal anything else about it. Reportedly, that film is being directed by Aditya Vikram Sengupta, who is known for films such as Jonaki and Labour of Love.
