A new role for Mou

A talented dancer, trendy model- cum- actress Mou, has a surprise up her sleeves for her fans this Eid: She plans to direct a special TV play to be aired on one of the TV channels.
The shooting of the one-hour TV play, “Niruddesh” will begin soon, in and around the capital, she says.
The star cast includes Humayun Faridee, Mamunur Rashid, Afsana Mimi, Tushar Khan and Zahid Hasan.
“I am quite content and looking forward to it,” adds a smiling Mou, on her directorial debut.
The play “Niruddesh” centres on the mentally imbalanced Shishir Shikhdar, the only heir to the affluent Shikhdar family. Shishir is undergoing treatment under the attractive Dr. Adrita Chowdhury, when one night the two disappear, much to everyone's shock. A question uppermost in their minds: Why would the gorgeous Adrita go off with a mentally imbalanced person? The twist and turns from this point make for gripping viewing.
“I was totally bowled over with the story line,” says Sadia Islam Mou. “ I am sure viewers will find it gripping too.”
Does she have plans to direct more plays in the future? “It is a tedious job. My children and dance are my priorities so I don't think it would be wise to take up directing on a regular basis. But it would be worthwhile if I get good scripts.”
Sadia Islam Mou stepped into the modelling world in 1989. The first advertisement on Mount Shampoo was done by Saidul Islam Tutul almost 21 years ago. However, it is commonly accepted that till today no one has surpassed Mou. Her latest ad on spices by Amitabh Reza is another plus.
Lately, Mou has been appearing on ATN Bangla's TV serial “Chhonochhara”. Mou is also playing a role in “Anubhumi” on Desh TV, directed by Humayun Faridee. She is soon to appear on the TV play “Poush Phaguner Pala” directed by Afsana Mimi.
“My earliest TV play was “Obhimane Onubhobe” in 1994 where I was pitted against Tony Dias. I have taken up a handful of TV plays, and that also on request from my near ones,” adds Mou.
So how does it feel to direct a play in which her husband Zahid Hassan will be acting, while so long it was just the reverse? “It feels great.”
"After this, I will concentrate on dance rehearsals for the upcoming programme at BAFA. Then I will give time to my daughter Pushpita and my son Purno.
"I was very keen on painting and dance in my childhood. It never crossed my mind that I would be into modelling or acting. However, I have earned popularity in the medium and I am thankful to my fans for that.”
