Mousomi Nag is a familiar face in the television industry, where she has acted regularly for over a decade. She also has two films, Prarthona and Runout to her name. The actor currently has a very busy schedule ahead of the upcoming Eid, for which she has already started shooting. The Daily Star had a small chat with the glamorous actor.
Could you tell us about your current projects?
I am working on three tele-fictions, of which Malek Hotey Shabdhan is already being broadcast on Deepto TV, directed by Mir Sabbir. The other two are Action Hour and Babar Alir Helicopter. Besides these, I have just finished filming Beakkel, which is a tele-fiction for Eid-ul-Adha.
What kind of characters are you playing in them?
Babar Alir Helicopter is a very fun drama, and I am actually portraying a dead person! (laughs) In Malek Hotey Shabdhan, I will act as the titular character's wife. Action Hour is about some of the wrongdoings of society, one of which my character is a victim of.
We did not see you on the silver screen after your first two films. What is the reason behind that?
I was heavily praised after the success of Runout, and got a lot of film offers as well. However, I felt that the offers were too similar to the characters I had already portrayed, and I did not want that. I wanted to be a part of something fresh. I will definitely do cinema, but the script has to be to my liking.
Do you have a project which you would consider 'career defining'?
That would have to be Drishtidaan. I never had to look back after the fantastic tele-fiction by Aruna Biswas, based on a story by Rabindranath Tagore. After its success, I got a plethora of offers from everywhere. Amitabh Reza Chowdhury signed me up in a popular ad for a telecom company after that.
