Grateful that ‘Bachelor Point’ welcomed me in their gang: Parsa Evana
Parsa Evana started her journey in acting with the Anjan Aich directorial tele-fiction "Ponchomir Chaand", after she became the champion of "Channel I Shera Nachiye 2014". Exploring her options in arts, the trained Bharatnatyam dancer's performance in Mabrur Rashid Banna's "Nine and a half" brought her much attention from viewers.
While the pandemic brought about a pause in her endavours, she came back strong with productions like "Sweeper Man" and "Doi". The actress is currently busy shooting for season 4 of "Bachelor Point".
Amidst her shoots, we caught up with the actress, to know about her journey, her vision regarding dance, and her future plans.
You started your journey with dance and gradually embraced acting. Tell us about your journey.
My mother was the biggest inspiration behind this choice as she always wanted to see me on the screen. She often used to talk about how dancers like Aupee Karim and Sadia Islam Mou have grown to become some of the most cherished actresses.
I initially only focused on dance with the guidance of my guru, Amit Chowdhury. With time, I became a regular performer at my institute Shadhona - A Centre for Advancement of Southasian Culture.
After "Shera Nachiye", I got the opportunity to work in some productions by Channel I, and that's how I ventured out into acting.
What kind of roles do you like to play?
I always look for characters that are in no way similar to my actual personality. I like challenges and trying out new elements always excite me.
I like to study human behaviour, and always try to think as my characters, leaving my personal identity behind. This comes with its own challenges, as it's never easy to completely erase your own persona from your being.
How has your experience been with "Bachelor Point"?
After being appreciated for my performance in "Doi", Kajal Arefin Ome decided to cast me in the fourth season of his much-loved sitcom "Bachelor Point".
The journey started as a bumpy ride, as we had to reschedule shooting three times due to unfavourable weather conditions. Finally, we were able to start and the production is being well-received among the audience.
Being my first drama-serial, this production will always have a special place in my heart, and the "Bachelor Point" team has only made this journey more special, as they welcomed me warmly into their gang.
What are your future plans? Are you looking forward to ant OTT projects or films?
I intend on resuming my academics, as I had to wait for two year after my A' Levels due to the pandemic. Alongside my studies, I want to keep my pursuits in dance alive, while trying out new roles.
I have been approached for OTT productions, but I did not relate to the characters I was being offered. I will pick up roles that I like, irrespective of telecasting medium.
I don't like to plan the future. Rather, I have decided to wait for the surprises that the future has in store for me!
