How was the experience of working on Aloy Bhubon Bhora and Bhalobashar Uttap?
Working on Aloy Bhubon Bhora and Bhalobashar Uttap was a creatively satisfying experience. I feel very fortunate to be a part of these films.
What other projects are you currently busy with?
I am working the films Manush Keno Omanush, directed by Ahmed Ilias and Kobe Hobe Dekha, directed by the late Shahed Chowdhury.
You are a fantastic dancer as well. What role does dancing play in your life?
I developed a knack for dancing from a really young age. I took courses at Shilpakala Academy. My skills as a dancer are proving to be quite useful these days, especially when I am shooting film songs.
How would you define your aspirations as an actor?
I believe that I am a confident and hardworking artiste. In the long run, I want to let my work speak for itself, and to that end, I hope to be remembered for good work.
