When did you arrive in Bangladesh?
It has been a few days since I came to Bangladesh to shoot for my upcoming film, Gangchil. We are currently shooting in a village in Noakhali. I hope to return home by tomorrow.
How has your experience been from the shoots?
Shooting in this village has been an amazing experience. Its green environment and the river banks are beautiful. Having Ferdous and Purnima as my co-actors made this experience even better.
Tell us a bit about your role in the film.
I am playing the role of Bijli in the film. I do not want to give any spoilers, so I will just say that Bijli is a special character and plays an important role in the film.
You are to work in a couple of more films in Bangladesh. How are those projects coming along?
I will be working in the film Jam, produced by actor Manna’s production house, Kritanjali Kothachitra. His wife Shelly approached me to work in the film. So, I hope to return to Bangladesh soon.
What else are you currently busy with, besides ‘Gangchil’?
My film 3 Kanya, was recently released. I have to start shooting for my other projects in Kolkata as soon as I return home. Besides, I also have to plan my next trip to Bangladesh. I will dearly miss the hospitality and kindness of Bangladesh while I will be away, especially the taste of Comilla’s Roshmalai and Padma’s Ilish.
