A vivacious up and coming actress

In conversation with Nova

Although Nova's journey in the media has been short, she has cemented her place with notable works in modelling and acting.
Since the launch of her career through a 2005 Pran TV commercial, Nova has won much praise from the modelling gigs that followed.
Signing up in the 2006 edition of “You Got the Look” was a milestone for Nova, as she picked up the awards for 'Best Look' and 'Best Smile' in the pageant. Director Animesh Aich saw her potential and signed her up for one of his TV plays. The play, titled “Prem O Gham-er Golpo”, featured Nova in the role of Nayantara. Right after that she was offered a role in Saiful Islam Mannu's serial “Khuje Berai Taare”, written by Imdadul Haq Milon. Memorable performances on TV helped build her reputation as an actress.
The most notable TV plays Nova has worked in include: “Ghorar Dim”, “Boishakh Theke Srabon”, “Nishad”, “Photocopy” and “Shopno Bashona”, while her popular serials are Ferdous Hasan's “Mohanagar”, Redwan Rony's “Houseful” and Afsana Mimi's “Doll's House”. She has also claimed much praise for her work in the TVCs of Pran Daal, Teer Sugar, Navana Biscuit and Banglalink.
An entertainer herself, Nova spends time watching TV plays and listening to music. Subarna Mustafa is one of her favourite actresses.
Nova recently returned from Bangkok after working in Raihan Khan and Shokal Ahmed's jointly directed 52-episode serial, titled “Ha-Du-Du”. Nova expressed her satisfaction about working on the serial.
Nova also has a production house of her own called 'Prottasha' which produced a TV play last Eid. A telefilm called “Blue” is also in the pipeline to be aired this upcoming Eid. Raihan Khan is directing “Blue”. Plans for another telefilm by the production house is on, while Nova plans to produce another on the occasion of Victory Day.
Despite her strong presence in TV plays, modelling, production and hosting, Nova is yet to appear on the silver screen. She says there is no immediate plan of joining the film industry; instead she will focus on TV plays and occasionally host shows.
Currently, the serial “Jamai Mela”, featuring Nova, is being aired on Banglavision, while Rtv is airing her “Porshi Bari”. Nova says both TV plays are unique and she enjoyed working in both of them.
