Avoiding rice for two months: Bidya Sinha Mim


Popular actress Bidya Sinha Mim is regularly working in films as well as in commercials. Recently, in an interview with Bangladesh Post’s Entertainment Correspondent A Mizan, she divulged what she is up to these days.

You are going to start work on a new movie soon. Can you elaborate?

The name of the movie is 'Damal'. Directed by Raihan Rafi, it will star opposite Siam and Shariful Raj. The shooting will start on November 25. Before this, I never worked in a movie based on liberation war. I am happy to have the opportunity to work in a movie based on the liberation war story. Its story will go on about a football team and various issues during the liberation war.

Have you made any special preparations for this movie?

I lost three more kilos to work for this movie.I have had twice as much trouble losing a little three kilograms of weight as it is for obese people. I have not eaten rice for two months.

Not only that, I have completely eliminated carbohydrates. I ate a pitch pizza at Puja, had to run for an hour for that one pitch pizza. I have burned 1000 calories.

Did you take any extra caution for corona, during the shooting of this movie?

I didn't do anything at all in the lockdown. After the lockdown, I started working a little. Now everyone is working regularly in New Normal Life. I'm back to work too. 

Yet fear works. Because if you go to work in this global epidemic, there is no opportunity to work with 100% relief. I am trying to work with the utmost caution in this as much as possible.

You were supposed to work on a new webfilm. What's up with that?

I will be working on the movie 'Damal' till December 4. Then I will start working on the webfilm. At first Tahsan Bhai was supposed to work opposite of me but he could not do the job. So, someone new will be casting.

This will be my first job under the guidance of Anam Biswas. The webfilm will be viewed and published on OTT platform G5.

OTT platform is aninternational platform. Bollywood and Hollywood actors and actresses will also be seen working on the same platform. How confident are you to compete with them?

I think with good acting, storytelling and construction I can compete well. I will try my best. If everyone can do their best, I believe it will be good.
