Three times National Award Winning actress Popy can now be rarely seen in the showbiz and the actress thinks that to some extent, the lack of professionalism among some people of the industry is the main reason behind it.
Despite being irregular, Popy still has a strong foothold on the silver screen. Popy’s main concern has always been the quality of the script when it comes to signing a contract, not the quantity. Regarding this, the actress said, “Truth be told, our industry really lacks the common sense of professionalism. This is the reason why the number of films that are getting released each year is increasing drastically, unlike the standard or quality.”
Popy added that it is her love for Dhallywood which caused her to stay in this platform throughout all these years. “Despite all the setbacks, I absolutely love this industry. However, that factor never influenced my decision while signing a film. I never compromised when it came to quality.”
Popy has recently wrapped up filming ‘Shonabondu’ in which she will be seen opposite DA Tayeb.
Her last big-screen outing was ‘Char Okkhorer Bhalobasha’. The film was a hit among the audience, and it brought the talented actress back to the filmdom.
On the other hand, Popy is a special treat for eyes on small screen during several special occasions. And this Eid-ul-Azha is no exception. She is going to appear in three dramas- ‘Nayikar Biye’, ‘Innocent Love’, ‘Expression of Love’ on different satellite channels.
Popy confirmed that she will not be regular on TV screen. “Well, I like working for small screen but I’ll not be regular there. This time I agreed to do the three dramas as the scripts seemed striking to me.”
Popy was one of the most sought after actresses of Dhallywood industry during the late 1990’s and early 2000’s. She started her career with a showbiz program named ‘Lux Ananda Bichitra’ in 1995. Popy made her film career debut in the 1997 film ‘Coolie’ with Omar Sani, directed by Montazur Rahman Akbar. She has acted in numerous commercials and over 200 Bengali-language films. The sensational diva recieved three National Film Awards, for movies ‘Karagar’, ‘Gongajatra’ and ‘Megher Kole Rod’.
