National Film Award-2010

Rumana wins award for first time

Cultural Correspondent


Model turned actress Rumana clinched her first national film award under the ‘best supporting actress’ category of the National Film Award 2010 announced recently by the government.
She got the award for her performance in the movie Bhalobashlei Ghor Bandha Jai Na directed by Zakir Hossain Raju. In the movie Rumana enacted the role of a young maiden named Ojanta, who falls in love with the lead character, played by Bollywood heartthrob Shakib Khan, in the triangular love movie. But her dream never comes true and at last Ojanta realises that ‘every love does not have a happy end’. It is to be mentioned that Shakib Khan also got his first national award performing in the movie.  
‘I was a bit surprised after winning the national award just within the three years of my acting career in cinema. And when the movie was made, I had experience of working just over a year in Dhaliwood. The national level recognition is very inspirational as well as prestigious. I consider myself really lucky, since many artistes never get the national award even after spending the whole life in film industry,’ an excited Rumana told New Age.
‘The strong story line of the film and the touchy dialogues made my character something special, and I tried my level best to give a realistic presentation of the character,’ she added.
Narrating her business with two movies- Kachher Shotru, Sobuj Keno Aporadhi- Rumana said, ‘I will continue to my career in the movie with dedication. At the same time I like to continue my appearance in the small screen.’
Rumana further informed that she had two mega serials- Prem Tumi Ki and Sweet Mane Mishti-in her hands.
A popular model Rumana started acting in TV plays in the late 1990s. She began her career in the movie industry only in 2008. So far, Rumana has appeared in 26 movies including Biye Bari, Preme Parechi, Ek Takar Bou, Maa Amar Chokher Moni and others within this time.
