Shah Alam Shazu

A popular face on the small screen,  Bhabna will appear in a telefilm “Kundala”, based on the novel "Kapalkundala" of renowned writer Bankim Chandra Chattopadhyay. Under the direction of Animesh Aich, she plays the eponymous role.
 The four-day shoot of the telefilm, against the backdrop of a forest and beach in Moheshkhali, wrapped up recently.
 Expressing her elation over the project, Bhabna told The Daily Star, “I always dreamed of playing such a character but it was very tough to portray the role of Kundala.”
 “Besides, the script was very difficult. I was extremely nervous before the camera as the telefilm was based on Bankim's novel," said the talented artiste, adding that she had read "Kapalkundala".
 Going back in time, Bhabna says that Animesh telephoned her to get her suggestions about who could play the role. She suggested a few names. Interestingly, a few days later the director offered her the assignment.
The actress says the role is her best so far. The telefilm will be aired on SA TV during Eid. Besides, her Eid play “Prio”, directed by Animesh Aich will be telecast on Channel i. Under the direction of Toukir Ahmed, a play “Kabitar Jonno” will also be aired during Eid.   
Apart from this, she has appeared in another Eid play “Jhalkhor” with Mosharaf Karim. Besides, two of other plays “Prothidin Sanibar” and “Red Carpet” will be aired on Channel 9 and ntv.
