Jyotika Jyoti is now at the peak of her career. Although she first won the hearts of TV audiences with her acting, the talented artiste is rarely seen on the small screen, ash she's more occupied on celluloid.
She recently went to Dinajpur to shoot a new film “Anil Bagchir Ekdin”, based on a novel of renowned author Humayun Ahmed.
“I played the role of Anil Bagchir's sister named Atoshi in the movie, directed by Morshedul Islam”, she told The Daily Star.
In the film, on hearing the news of his father's death, Anil, who stays in Dhaka, heads for his village home at the time of the Liberation War. On the way, he continues recalling the fond memories of his father and sister Atoshi.
“Interestingly, when I was in school, I received the novel 'Anil Bagchir Ekdin' as first prize in an essay competition”, said Jyoti.
“I tried my level best to portray my character as per the director's instructions”, she said.
“Atoshi, who has been in a good relationship with her father, is very courageous in the film. The climax of the film begins when the Hindu girl of the small town falls in love with a Muslim youth”.
“Anil Bagchir Ekdin” features a number of classical songs besides Rabindra Sangeet, she added.
Earlier, Jyoti acted in director Humayun Ahmed's “Nondito Naroke” and Tanvir Mokammel's “Jibondhuli” that brought her acclaim.
Her first movie was “Aina” directed by noted film artiste Kabori. She also appeared in Tanvir Mokammel's “Rabeya”.
Jyoti wants to appear on celluloid on regular basis from now on.
