Tasnia Farin on “Ladies and Gentlemen”
Tasnia Farin is known for hits like "Pocketmar" (2019) and "Valobasa Tarpor" (2020), among others. The talented actor will be seen playing the lead in Mostofa Sarwar Farooki's debut web series "Ladies and Gentlemen". In a candid chat with The Daily Star, Tasnia Farin talks about her OTT debut, experiences, and upcoming ventures.
How was your experience of working with Mostofa Sarwar Farooki, that too in his web series debut?
I have worked with Mostofa Sarwar Farooki before in advertisements, but this is the first time we have worked together on a proper story. He is a very hard working person, and collaborating with him has left me with a unique experience. He has the ability to transform any script into reality, and while shooting for "Ladies and Gentlemen", I felt like this is my reality. Thus, I never had to worry too much about acting, as everything came naturally to me.
Tell us a bit about your role. What challenges did you face while projecting this character on screen?
I play the character of Sabila Hossain. I would not call it a proto-feminist story, as there are a lot of other characters that revolve around Sabila's being. "Ladies and Gentlemen" projects a lot of social issues that we seldom talk about, but such issues need to be addressed immediately. Sabila is a strong and bold woman and getting into her psychology has been the most difficult part for me while playing her.
The star cast of this production is very unique. How was your shooting experience?
I had never worked with these stars before, but for me, it worked in my favour. As I did not know them personally before, I got to know them through their characters. This helped me relate to my character and the plot in a more realistic way.
Tell us a bit about your most memorable scene from this production.
Picking up a scene is difficult as each scene pick different volumes. However, I would pick the climax if I had to pick one. Shooting for the climax was thrilling and exciting at the same time, and I am excited for the audience to watch this.
What are your future projects?
I am currently working with Mizanur Rahman Aryan for his upcoming telefiction "Networker Baire", which will air on Chorki. I have also been busy with television productions for Eid ul-Adha.
