Bonna Mirza: Mastering all trades

Bonna Mirza is primarily known as an actor with a career spanning television, film, and theatre. Her performances have been met with critical praise and garnered her much popularity among audiences. However, the actor is presenting herself in a new light as a TV host. She has been seen as a morning show anchor on Ekattor tv twice a week for two years. 

“I truly enjoy being a presenter,” said the actor, “It is not possible to continue any work at great length if you do not have fun doing it.” But that is not all; aside from being a TV host, the star also has a 9-5 job for several months now. When asked what has made her look into a different profession, Bonna responded with, “I will never leave acting, as it is not possible. However, I am taking on fewer acting projects than before and that is why I have chosen to explore other fields. I am having great fun discovering my abilities in areas I have not explored before.”

Now juggling three jobs, the actor explained how she manages to strike a balance. “I host the programme early in the morning only twice a week,” she said, “So most of the time, shooting is scheduled during weekends, and the same goes for acting jobs. All this has made it quite easy to maintain a regular job.”

The actor will also star in an eight-episode television play directed by Badrul Anam Saud titled “Chhaya Poth”, for which shooting is going on at Rajendrapur. “I am always seeking to try new things,” said the actor, “and viewers will see me play a role I have not tried before.”

Regarding acting, Bonna Mirza revealed that she is now focusing on single-episode TV plays and telefilms. “Acting in drama serials consume a lot of time and require commitment, which I am not able to provide right now,” she said.

Additionally, Bonna Mirza has extended her talents to the stage once again, after seven years. She is currently rehearsing with the theatre troupe Desh Natok for their new production “Shurgaon”.
