An intimate celebration for Sweety

When Tanvin Sweety made her debut as a model in the '90s, it didn't take long for her to achieve success in the fast-paced world of showbiz. The audience loved her almost immediately, and for over a decade, she has established a noteworthy acting career on screen and in theatre. Today marks the artiste's birthday, and in a recent conversation with The Daily Star, Sweety details her plans for the day, and more.

How do you plan to spend your birthday?

I will be at home today, where a few friends and close colleagues will visit me. I expect to have a fun filled evening where I will be cooking for them, and catching up with our stories. There will be cake as well. The funny thing is, I have already received gifts from my friends a few days before, which was a pleasant surprise.


Do you expect any surprises from your husband?

He never fails to surprise me on my birthdays, and I know he has something up his sleeve today as well. For the last three years, he has whisked me away on trips abroad, and he might have done the same this time too, if there wasn't Eid just a few days ago.


How were birthdays spent during your childhood?

Oh, those were very memorable. There would be cake, which would be shared with my siblings and other family members, and friends from school and the neighborhood.


What do you expect from your fans on this day?

My fans have always been expressive in their love and admiration, and this is something I feel even when I'm away in the States or Canada. One time a fan sent flowers to my address, which made me very happy.


What are you currently busy with?

I will star a tele-fiction aired on Duronto TV titled B te Bondhu. I am also working on another series aired on Banglavision titled The Good, The Bad, The Ugly. I have a few more projects in the pipeline as well.


You regularly appear in staged productions as well. Could you tell us more about that?

I belong to the troupe named 'Theatre'. I have worked in theatre for many years now, and currently our next show is a production titled Mukti, to be staged on September 7.
