Jaya’s Tollywood stronghold
Jaya Ahsan, one of the biggest names on the silver screen in Bangladesh, is now making a mark in the Kolkata film industry. Besides Bangladeshi fans, she has won the hearts of millions with a number of hit Tollywood movies.
The actress recently returned to Dhaka after shooting for a Tollywood film “Ami Joy Chatterjee Bolchi”, directed by Monoj Michigan. She stars opposite Abir in the project.
Meanwhile, last week Jaya was on hand to receive the Tele-Cine Award in Kolkata, as the Best Supporting Actress for her 2015 film “Rajkahani”. Alongside her, Bangladeshi singer Shahriar Rafat and director Masud Pothik were also honoured at the awards.
About her work in “Ami Joy Chatterjee Bolchi”, Jaya told The Daily Star she was immediately drawn to the story, and it was an easy decision to work in it.
Meanwhile, back in Bangladesh, Jaya recently began shooting for “Peyarer Subash”, directed by Nurul Alam Atique – who directed Jaya’s big screen debut “Duub Satar”. Filming for “Peyarar Subash” is now underway in Sirajganj.
