But I had to act in our theatre group’s new drama during this pandemic situation. I have liked the role Monomita in the drama. Though story of the drama is presented current time but the playwright wrote its story earlier. It was really a thinkable matter that how the playwright wrote story of the play and related how people have to face pandemic situation like Coronavirus of present time. Overall, I got huge response from the audience to act in this play. On November 20 and 21, this play will be staged again at Bangladesh Shilpakala Academy.”
