Jyotika Jyoti has very tight shooting schedules with a flurry of TV plays and films on the cards. In this month of victory, one of her films “Anil Bagchir Ekdin” has been released. In a recent conversation with The Daily Star, the popular actress talked about her latest project. Excerpts:
Tell us about your character in the film.
Jyotika Jyoti: In the movie, I've played a valiant girl named Atoshi, sister of Anil, who hails from a Hindu family. Atoshi tactfully foils her marriage several times as she falls in love with a boy. She is different from girls of her age.
Are you going about promoting the film?
Jyotika Jyoti: We took ride on a horse-drawn carriage on the streets of Dhaka for the film's promotion. Apart from this, I went to a theatre to watch the cinema on the first day. I'm also visiting different TV channels as part of its promotion.
What's the response from the audience?
Jyotika Jyoti: Very positive. I visited two theatres where everyone praised the story. The new generation really wants to see Liberation war-based films. Some in the audience told me that they wanted to watch the movie for a second time.
And you've also done playback for the film?
Jyotika Jyoti: Although I'm not a singer at all, I sang a Rabindra Sangeet, “Aj Jyotsna Ratey Sobai Gechhe Boney”. It's really a challenging job for me. Swany Zubayeer was the music director. Everyone received the song warmly.
What type of movies do you want to do in future?
Jyotika Jyoti: Every artiste should do an array of works. I also want to act in mainstream films but it depends on the story. I've already been offered roles in three films.
What are your expectations from 2016?
Jyotika Jyoti: I was busy with work all year round. I'm happy with my assignments. I want to do more films next year.
