On the occasion of International Women's Day, Rtv will air a special presentation by Chayanika Chowdhury tonight at 7:50pm. Titled "Onakankhito", the play has been written by Sharmeen Chowdhury Ipshita. The story surrounds the struggles of a widow. Arefeen Shubho, Bindu and Shormili Ahmed star in the play. The director says she will consider herself successful only if the audience appreciates her creative output.
Making single-episode TV plays crowds playwright and director Chayanika's already busy schedule. So far she has 132 such plays to her credit.
"Maya", a play written by Imdadul Haq Milon was her 50th directorial feat, while she completed her century with Arun Chowdhury's "Choloman Chhobi". Other mentionable Chayanika Chowdhury productions are "Tomake Chhuye", "Dui Bon", "Noshto Nir", "Jekhane Shimanto", "Shonar Kathhi Rupar Kathhi", "Anchol", "Kotha Chhilo Onnorokom", "Esho Haat Dhoro" and "Locket".
Chayanika made her directorial debut with "Ek Jibone", a play which aired on October 28, 2002.
Chayanika's involvement with TV dramas came through her husband, noted playwright and journalist Arun Chowdhury. She used to check the scripts for Arun, as well as sit in front of monitors during shooting. These experiences steered her towards a career in the media.
