Badsha turning point of my career: Nusrat Faria
Popular Dallywood actress Nusrat Faria Mazhar, widely known as Nusrat Faria, has recently been cast for Mumbai based film‘Gawah: The Witness.’
The 21-year-old model-turned-actress and popular TV programs presenter, who gained popularity by hosting reality-show ‘Handsome: The Ultimate Man,’ has talked to UNB about her upcoming projects.
Sharing her thoughts about her recently released joint venture production movie ‘Badsha-the Don’, she told UNB: ‘I am fully satisfied with the success of the movie. Badsha-the Don, has earned more than other movies as far as I have heard. Viewers’ reaction was very positive so far.
‘However, we need to wait for the end of the day; after all it is a good time to observe what matters most to the audiences.’
Thanking her fans, she said: ‘I am glad and thankful to my fans across Bangladesh and India for coming up with inspiring responses. They are communicating with me through various social media platforms and conveying their greetings.’
‘I became very happy after some fans from Kolkata said that no other commercial movie can beat Badsha -The Don,’ added the actress.
Recalling her visit to Balaka cinema hall on Eid day, she recollected how ‘viewers were whistling in the hall while watching the movie,’ which inspired her.
The direction by Bangladesh’s Abdul Aziz and Baba Jadev from India was, according to her, the turning point in her career so far.
‘I was very worried about the reactions of the viewers before Eid. Tension and nervousness was always working in me. Now I am very relaxed after receiving positive reaction from viewers.’ said Nusrat.
Born in 8 September, 1983, she started her showbiz career as a television presenter and radio jockey, before moving on to modeling in several advertisements.
She had first signed with Jaaz Multimedia to appear in two films, titled ‘Aashiqui’ and ‘Hero 420’ in 2015 before signing ‘Badsha- the Don’.
Faria pondered the element of competition at work, citing how three big budget movies were released on Eid, with all of them earning similar box office figures so far. ‘This gives me a space to think about my performance’, she remarked.
She was busy promoting her movie, her tiring schedule switching between Kolkata and Dhaka several times.
‘I arrived in Dhaka on the morning of Eid day. As I was so busy with promoting the movie, I had no time to spend with my family, but after the release I tried to give them enough time’.
She will return to his shooting from July 15 for her role in the film ‘Premi O Premi’, directed by Zakir Hossain Raju in Bandarbon.
