Her second film “Sorbonasha Yaba” that addresses the derogatory effects of yaba is almost completed. Dhaka Tribune caught up with the actor and talked about her future ventures and recent projects:
What you are up to nowadays?
I have already completed shooting for many Eid special programmes. Eid is always a busy time for us and I loved every minute of shooting for the Eid programmes. At present, I am working on Salauddin Lavlu’s Eid special drama series “Layek Chan the Great” and a telefilm “Protishodh.”
I am also preparing for my next films “Beiman” and “Raza Golam.”
Tell us about your take on acting and your experience.
I live for acting. My life is all about my work. I live many roles in real life as well. I believe that acting is such a career where you get to learn something new every day. Transforming your usual self into the character you are playing is not an easy task for everyone and that is how a star stands out from ordinary actors.
I have been singing and dancing since childhood and also participated in “Notun Kuri” competition. But, I always preferred acting. So I joined the competition to find a better platform for myself and now I am here today. I do not have any academic background in acting. That is why I always try to learn from our senior actors and my observation skills. I practice my script by standing in front of a mirror.
Where do you see yourself ten years from now?
I am hoping to develop my career as a successful actor and really looking forward to seeing myself as one of the best actors in Bangladesh, in ten years time.
Who is your dream character?
Susanna, from “7 Khoon Maaf” is my dream character.
Who is your favourite actor?
As an audience, I am fan of Suchitra Sen and Priyanka chopra.
