Shabana -Ever green Bangladeshi actress.
Shabana was an ever green Bangladeshi actress. She’s birth name is Ratna. Her family is originated in dabuwa Raozan area in Chittagong. She acted over 300 films in Bangla & Urdu and also one Hindi. She started her acting career in 1960s. She first acted in film Natun Sur in 1962 at the age of 9. She first appeared in a Urdu film Chakori in 1967. It was directed by Ehtesham.She acted with actors like Nadeem, Razzak, Bulbul Ahmed, Prabir Mitra, Shawkat Akbar,Subhash Dutta, Rahman, Syed Hasan Imam, Uzzal, Alamgir, Jashim, ATM Shamsuzzaman, Khasru, Sohel Rana, Mahmud Koli, Ilyas Kanchan, Wasim, Humayun Faridi, Javed Sheikh and Rajesh Khanna. Shabana and Alamgir pair was considered as the most successful one after Razzak-Kabari.
Bengali actress Shabana’s career was inextricably linked with Pakistani film actor Nadeem. In fact when the erstwhile star made his screen debut in the Urdu hit film Chakori in 1967, he was paired with the actress who began her career in the late 50’s in a slew of Bengali films. Her cosmopolitan roles included Anari, Chotey Sahab, Chand aur Chandni and Chand Suraj – an experimental film by Pakistani director Mustafiz, similar in technique to Robert Altman’s latter-day, “Shortcuts”, the first half was devoted to the relationship between Waheed Murad and Rozina, while later unconnected interludes were focused on Shabana and evergreen co-star Nadeem.
After the fall of East Pakistan in 1971, Shabana remained absent from the Pakistani film world. She resurfaced in the 80’s, when co-productions among South Asian countries became a popular style of film making including roles in Basera (1983) Zameen Aasman, and Aandhi again all with Nadeem. Many films insiders believed that upon her return to Pakistan, Shabana would topple the effervescent Shabnam who earlier in her own career had developed a complex rivalry with Shabna. But filmwallahs were mistaken. (Later of course Shabnam went on to co-star with Nadeem in countless films). Crestfallen, Shabana packed her bags and returned to Bangladesh in the late 80’s where she still continued to make Bengali films without Nadeem.
Shabana left acting in 1998 and has left to USA to permanently live with her family members. She is married to Bangaldeshi film director Wahis Sadik since 1973. She has two daughters and one son.
