Speaking with The Daily Star, the actress expressed about her last visit to the Boi Mela, “I was pregnant during my last visit to the Boi Mela and that made for an exceptional experience. Thus, being back after so long has made quite emotional”.
Renowned actor Ferdous Ahmed had just published his book, “Ei Kahini Shotto Noy” at the Ekushey Boi Mela a few days ago. Being friends with Ferdous for a long time, his book was the first purchase she made after setting foot in the Boi Mela.
