Upcoming actress Toma Mirza has been on the move -- 11 of her movies have been released so far, even as more films are in the pipeline. Toma gave The Daily Star a peek into her busy life:
You recently acted in the film “Nodijon”. Tell us more about it.
Toma: The shooting and dubbing of the film are complete. The film, directed by Shahnewaz Kakoli, was shot in Kushtia where I worked with Pran Roy and Nirob. The movie has already been invited to various film festivals.
What is the USP of “Nodijon”?
Toma: “Nodijon” is a totally different kind of film. It is very tough to act in such movie without a sound knowledge of acting.
How challenging was it for you?
Toma: It was very challenging, as I had not worked in such a film earlier. The dialogues were in the local dialect of Kushtia, and I had to put in a great effort to learn the dialect before shooting for the movie. Moreover, we had to work in a rural setting.
You have also been appearing on the small screen?
Toma: I acted in TV plays occasionally. I appeared in the play “Atithi” with Mosharraf Karim. Besides, I worked with film artist Samrat in a play directed by Nayak Raj Razzak. I also acted in a stage play.
How engaged are you on the social media?
Toma: Frankly, I'm not on Facebook. I used to, but I started avoiding the social network since it got hacked this one time.
What work have you been doing lately?
Toma: The film “Lovely”, opposite Arifin Shuvo. It has a strong storyline. I hope the film will entertain audiences. Also, I recently signed up for the movie “Mission America”, directed by Ashiqur Rahman. It will be shot in USA.
