Novera used to drive rickshaw on Dhaka’s road for 1hr daily
The trailer of filmmaker Amitabh Reza Chowdhury’s second movie ‘Rickshaw Girl’ has been released. The 2.18 minutes trailer has received a lot of responses on social media.
The film is based on the story of Indian-American author Mitali Perkins’ teenage novel ‘Rickshaw Girl’. Novera Rahman has portrayed the role of ‘Naima’, a girl who drives a rickshaw for livelihood in the film.
Novera said she had various experiences while shooting for the film. “I am getting a very positive response after the release of the trailer. Honestly, it feels really good to get audience feedback,” she said.
“Here I played the role of a rickshaw puller,” she said about her character in the film. “At first, I thought I would drive a rickshaw in the set. But no, the director told me to drive a rickshaw on the road. Due to this, I had to learn to drive a rickshaw.”
Novera Rahman added that she used to drive a rickshaw on the streets of Niketan for an hour every day, which was very difficult. “I have merged with the character at one time through hard work,” said Novera Rahman.
