Tête-à-tête with Mashiat Tasnim Rahman


After her first break in a talent hunt, Mashiat Tasnim Rahman seized the opportunity to put her skills to the test and gain confidence through experience. The emerging actress, although squeezed for time with a hectic schedule, loves to drench herself in rain-- whenever she gets the chance. Leisure time is also movie time for her; watching flicks and TV dramas fall among her favourite pastimes. Mashiat says there is a lot to learn from watching others act.
Born and brought up in Rangpur in a small family comprising her parents and a brother-- Mashiat passed her SSC exams from the Rangpur Cantonment Public School and College. She is currently studying BBA at the North South University. Mashiat says she has always been a good student, securing a golden A plus in her exam. The actress adds that she was only allowed to join the world of media after vowing to keep education at the top of her priorities.
The enthusiasm and encouragement of her friends, says Mashiat, is the only reason for her participation in the 2010 edition of Lux-Channel i Superstar -- in which she secured fourth place.
Mashiat's debut in TV play was in Salahuddin Lavlu's “Teen Purush” aired on Banglavision, where she acted opposite Chanchal Chowdhury. Her telefilm debut meanwhile was in Nahid Ahmed Piyal's “Punnyo Amar Desher Maati” aired on Channel i.
Currently, TV channels are airing three serials featuring Mashiat: Wahid Anam's “Varsity”, Shokal Ahmed's “Terminal” and 'Mohammad Mostafa Kamal Raj's “Chader Nijer Kono Alo Nei”.
Her busy appointment book also saw her performing recently in the serials “Priyo” by Chayanika Chowdhury; “Chup Adalot Cholchhe” by Jewel Mahmud”; “Generation Next Dot'” by Ezaz Munna, “Adhaar Periye” by Kaisar Ahmed, Masudur Rahman's “Khoy”, and another yet to be titled by Kaisar. She has also finished shooting for Iftekhar Ahmed Fahmi's “Foo”, Raihan Khan's “Jekhane Keu Nei”, Toukir Ahmed's “Chhayabrita” and another TV play by Himel Ashraf. Her other one-hour performances include “Hothat Dekha” and “'Na Bola Nishedh” by Anjan Aich and “Otol Jatra” by Nayeem Imtiaz Neyamul.
Mashiat has also tested her skills as a host, anchoring programmes on Desh TV, “Pepsi Change the Game” and “Style and Fashion”. Apart from that, she has modelled for the commercial of Confidence Soy Bean oil.
Ever aspiring to do one step better, Mashiat now wishes to work for the silver screen. Among her contemporaries, Bindu's acting impresses Mashiat the most.
August 24 is Mashiat's birthday, a day the talented star says she enjoys hanging out and having fun with her friends.
