Young actor Manoj Kumar is always on the lookout for interesting projects. A theatre major from Rajshahi University, he recently worked on Redoan Rony's Biyer Dawat Roilo and Ashfaque Nipun's Iflix original short film, Ke. The actor opens up about his newest endeavours and more.


How was the experience of working on the Iflix original short film, 'Ke'?

Ke was my first project with director Ashfaque Nipun. He is someone who is really supportive and full of ideas. He made me feel very comfortable and it was an overall good experience.


You have also worked on 'Biyer Dawat Roilo'. What can you tell us about that?

Biyer Dawat Roilo, directed by Redoan Rony, is a mix of comedy and romance. I essayed the role of a wedding planner in it, which was a lot of fun. I hope the audience likes it.


Why do you enjoy acting?

I think that acting as a profession is very attached to real life. I can incorporate things from people that I have met and from my own experiences. I enjoy getting into someone else's shoes and seeing the world from their perspective.


What kind of characters are you particularly drawn to?

I think television presents many romantic and comic characters these days. But I am interested in playing characters that are multi-dimensional and psychologically complex.
