Rony, Dhaka: What dramas are you working on at the moment?
Rosy: I'm working on several serials. Desh TV is airing â€œRadio Chocolateâ€, ATN Bangla is showing â€œDBâ€, while several more are also ongoing on different channels.

Rani: Do you plan to become regular on films?
Rosy: I would have been more regular in films if I felt that the overall ambiance in the film industry suits me. A memorable film role immortalises an actor. If the film has a good plot, why won't I be interested?

Towhid, Comilla: The Bangladeshi channels are not aired in India. What's your opinion on this issue?

Shanto, Rangpur: Tell us something about your husband, the popular actor Shahiduzzaman Selim.
