When the dream is big, age or time can’t contain it. The career graph of actor Nasir Uddin Khan is a testament to this.
Although Nasir became popular with the web series ‘Mohanagar’, he has been acting for more than two decades.
Nasir started acting in 1995, through joining the Chattogram-based drama group Teerjok. Soon, acting became his main focus instead of studies or jobs.
Meanwhile, Nasir started a family and was soon blessed with two children. However, passion ruled over practicality and Nasir took the bold decision of quitting his job and focus solely on acting.
His massive success justifies that decision.
While talking to UNB, Nasir said that when he first came to Dhaka in 2016, he had no idea what would happen next.
“People close to me used to say that I should get a job for the sake of paying my bills. But I came to Dhaka to be an actor, nothing else. Most people who knew me thought I was making a big mistake. But I was confident and now I know that my decision was right,” said Nasir.
Although the showbiz industry had to go through a tough time during the Covid-19 pandemic, the OTT platforms started to gain popularity at the same time. Bangladesh was no exception.
A wind of change has taken over the local entertainment industry since the start of web series production. While these web series have offered the audience the expertise of multiple directors, they have also turned many actors into stars overnight.
“The OTT platforms met the needs of the audience at a time when the showbiz industry was going through a crisis. My career also took a turn after acting in a web series, thanks to the OTT platforms,” said Nasir.
Nasir has recently become the talk of the town after the release of the film ‘Hawa’. Many are saying that the film is the turning point of Nasir’s acting career. But the actor thinks otherwise.
“Life doesn’t follow a straight line. We have to live with both the good and bad. I view my career this way. There will be many highs and many lows in my acting career. Hawa will definitely help my career grow, but I don’t think this will be the turning point,” added Nasir.
Currently, Nasir Uddin Khan is busy with Hawa’s publicity and shooting for some new films. The actor is working on two new films and some new web series.
