First Television Play/Telefilm
Ekhane Ator Paoa Jai

Favourite Character
Aparna (Shapnochura) and Lalita (Lalita)

Childhood Dream
Since my childhood, I wanted to try many things but acting. As a child I thought I would become a doctor one day. Then after a few days, I thought of being an expert in agriculture. At some point I thought I would be a psychiatrist as well.

Favourite Workstation
Outside Dhaka I like working in any place which is rich in scenic beauty and less crowded, like tea gardens.

A Book that is Ingrained into Your Mind
During my childhood days, I used to be glued to the books of the Masud Rana series. Even now when I visit those faraway places where Mausd Rana used to go for adventure, I feel like nostalgia is creeping in.

A Character You Look Forward to Portraying
I enjoy portraying any character that I find challenging and difficult.

Beside Acting
I love travelling to places and shopping.

Significant Achievement
My profession allows me to reach out to a great number of people from all walks of life. I believe the love and respect I am blessed with is the greatest gift of my acting life.
Three Things You Always Keep with You
Mobile, wallet and my glasses.
