But she still writes scripts for television drama.
She acted in two of the famous liberation war related movies Aguner Poroshmoni(her first film) and Joyjatra. The first of those which was directed by Humayun Ahmed, she portrayed the role of a young girl who was blocked in her house with her family inside the city of Dhaka.
