Sumaiya Shimu is on the go

Actor Sumaiya Shimu is constantly on the go, shooting for many Eid special TV plays. Currently, she is based in Kishoreganj for a single episode play titled “Fantasy Opera”, directed by Mahmud Didar. Shatabdi Wadud stars opposite her.
“The story of ‘Fantasy Opera’ is quite interesting. Spectators will be thoroughly entertained by the play during Eid-ul-Fitr,” says Sumaiya.
Sumaiya hopes to be back in Dhaka soon after the three days shoot is over. In Dhaka, the busy actress will work for a host of single episode TV plays, scheduled for
the upcoming Eid. Sumaiya has completed shooting for another Eid special TV play “Teen Jonaki”, directed by Ferdaus Hasan Rana. Apurba is her co-actor in the TV play.
She was also featured in two Eid special TV plays, directed by Tuhin Abanto and Fazlur Rahman. “I still have to figure out in how many Eid special TV plays I am
acting, as shooting is still on,” says Sumaiya.
Sumaiya is also immersed in three TV serials “Dokkhinayoner Din”, “Chhayanari” and “Radio Chocolate”, currently aired on ntv, ATN Bangla and Desh TV respectively.
Sumaiya appears as the head of news of radio in “Radio Chocolate”; a village woman in “Chhayanari” and a realistic and complex character in “Dokkhinayoner Din”.
“I play three radically different characters in the serials. It was fun acting as director news in ‘Radio Chocolate’ as it was quite an unusual character for me,” says
Sumaiya.
Asked what Eid means to her today, Sumaiya says, “I need to relax and I plan to stay in Dhaka with my family during Eid. Eid days during my childhood were enjoyable.
On Eid mornings, I would experience a special sort of delight.
“What I enjoyed most was receiving Salami and gifts. I still receive gifts and in return have to give gifts too. But it makes me happy.”
