Arifin Shuvoo won millions of hearts with his laudable performance in 'Dhaka Attack.' He has now stepped into the industry of Kolkata with the film 'Ahare.' The Daily Star catches up with the popular star to discuss his aspirations about acting, his upcoming projects and more.
What are you currently busy with?
I will start shooting for a film called Shaap Ludo in October. It is directed by Golam Sohrab Dodul. At the moment, I am doing my homework on the character that I will be portraying in the film. We will also shoot the trailer of the film this month.
What can you tell us about Shaap Ludo?
Shaap Ludo is an action-thriller film. We will be shooting it in different venues across Bangladesh. Action-thriller is a genre we hardly come across, so I am excited for the audience to watch it.
What kind of cinema are you particularly drawn to?
In terms of genres, I am drawn to thriller, action and romantic films. However, at the end of the day, I am open to acting in any kind of cinema as long as the script is good.
What has been the most rewarding part of your acting career so far?
I am not a trained actor, so there are many things that I am still learning. I believe the social media and the internet have played an important role in my accomplishments as an actor. We get to see and learn plenty of things about the industry from the internet itself these days, which is a positive aspect.
Speaking of your accomplishments, how do you feel about the massive success of Dhaka Attack?
It feels great that people have liked my work and I feel privileged to be a part of the film. I will continue to work hard to entertain my fans.
Other than acting, what are some things that you enjoy doing?
Outside of my professional life, my friends and family are the most important to me. So, whenever I take a break from work, I like to spend time with them.
What are your future aspirations as an actor?
I believe that slow and steady wins the race. So, I take one day at a time and do not plan things ahead. I am selective about scripts as I prioritise quality over quantity.
