Dhallywood actress Porimoni will play the role of Labanya for a web series based on Tagore's classic novel ‘Shesher Kabita’.

The actress told the media this on Wednesday while during her birthday celebrations at a hotel in the capital .

“I’ve read the novel four times so far. I didn’t get it much when I read it for the first time in my childhood. Later, with each reading I felt like reading it again and again. This is why it was my dream to play the role of Labanya,” said she.

“Himel Ashraf offered the role to me first. Later, I talked with Tarun Majumdar who is the Bangladeshi correspondent of India-based digital platform ‘Addatimes’. The decision was finalised then,” she added.

Tarun Majumdar said, Addatimes wants to increase the audience in Bangladesh and chose the classic novel to that end.

Rajiv Mehra, producer and managing director of Addatimes, recently came to Bangladesh. He said, we have discussed the matter several times with the producer and director and finalised it.

About choosing Porimoni for Labanya, Himel Ashraf said, “I found Labanya sometimes in the character of Shubhra in ‘Swapnajal’ movie. So I thought, Porimoni will suit the role.”

The shooting will start on 1 December at Dhaka. The first episode will hit the web on next year’s Valentine’s Day.
