Ahsan Habib Nasim: Multi-tasking comes easy

Ahsan Habib Nasim has made a name for himself by performing in a variety of plays based on short stories by Rabindranath Tagore and Kazi Nazrul Islam. He has worked in adaptations of Tagore’s stories: “Konkal” and “Shesh Puroshkar”. Besides, Nasim has also performed in “Drishtidaan”, “Shesher Ratri”, as well as TV adaptations of Kazi Nazrul Islam’s “Shiulimala”, “Byathar Daan” etc.
The actor had his first film experience when he worked with Tauquir Ahmed in the movie “Jaijatra”. This was soon followed by performances in Shamim Akhtar’s “Kal Purobi” and “Oniket Alam’s “Out of Box”. However, both the films are still awaiting release. Nasim became an enlisted BTV actor after auditioning in 1997. But it was only in 2000 that he made his debut in “Kostori Mrigo Shomo”, produced by Mahbubul Alam. Acting became his fulltime career since 2003; since then he has worked tirelessly to create a strong foundation for himself.
Nasim’s turning point was the serials — “Tin Purush” by Sohel Arman; “Biborno Bhalobasha”, “Daarkaak” by Murad Parvez; “Neer’”by Ezaz Munna; “Ditiyo Jibon” by SA Haq Alik and “Ojana Gontobbye” by Saiful Islam Mannu. The actor says these projects helped shape his career, as each and every one brought him recognition among the audience.
Before becoming a regular face of TV, Nasim took his first acting steps on the stage, in 1992. Working with the group Subochon Natya Sangsad, he acted in “Khudhito Pashan”, “Rashtro Bonam”, “Khandani Kissa”, “Khona” and more. He also worked on background scores for several plays.
Asked about how he arrived on the acting scene, Nasim says, “I used to sing before. At one point, I decided to join a theatre troupe. Mamunur Rashid was holding a workshop at the time and he cast me in a small role for ‘Rashtro Bonam’, a play directed by him. I had two lines and a song. Later, however, my Baul character was developed and made prominent. Mamunur Rashid praised me for my acting. Since then I’ve been in love with acting and became a regular.”
Nasim is now busy with Eid special plays. Among his current projects is a play by Dima Nefartiti, which is an adaptation of Anwara Syed Haq’s story “Shopno Dekhar Shahosh”, converted for the screen by Syed Shamsul Haq.
Shooting is on for Ashrafi Mithu’s serial “Pauruti Omelet”, written by Anisul Haq. Other new works by Nasim are serials — “Ashe Din Jae” by Ripon Nabi and “Ondho Tirondaaj” by Murad Parvez.
Ongoing serials featuring the actor include “Ladies First” on Banglavision; “O Amaar Chokkhu Nai” and “Palabar Poth Nai” on ATN Bangla; “Oditiya” on BTV; “Patla Khan Lane” on Diganta TV and “Apon Apon Khela” on Channel 9.
Nasim has also worked as a model, earning fame for his performances in commercials for Grameen Phone, Pran and Radhuni. He says, “I am only interested in doing commercials which have some scope of acting.”
On a different note, Nasim says, “My initial aim was to work only on stage. But I started doing TV plays to earn a living. However, I didn’t discard the spirit of an artiste. I wish to maintain my commitment to acting and keep on working with my artistic sense intact.”
Nasim has also partnered with Maksudur Rabbi to open a production house called ‘Akriti’. The house already shot into the limelight for producing the serial “Manobjomin”, which was taken from a Shirshendu Mukhopadhyay novel. Nasim informed that a new serial would soon be made under the banner of Akriti.
