When did you journey with acting begin?
My hometown is Sreepur, Magura. I have been into this profession since my school days. I first started with Jaatra Pala, and then moved on to theatre. I am still involved in theatre and is working with Friday Theatre troupe in Dhaka.
You have acted on various platforms including dramas, theatres, and finally films. Which one did you enjoy the most?
Honestly, acting is the only thing that interests me. Acting has always been my primary focus.
Two of your films were released recently. How do you feel about it?
I played a minor role in Shaap Ludo. The film was well received by the audience, and is still running in many cinema halls around the country. My other film, Obotaar, is successively running in many cinema halls as well.
What kinds of characters do you prefer playing on screen?
I like playing negative and comic roles. Villainous attributes are always challenging, and thus, I enjoy them the most.
What are you currently busy with?
I have been featured in films like Dhaka Attack, Debi, and Nuru Mia O Tar Beauty Driver, before Shaap Ludo and Obotaar. Currently, I am working on Nandini. The film will be released soon.
