Tanjia Jaman Mithila, a popular Bangladeshi model, started her career as a model. Now the model is going to star in a Bollywood movie where she will be seen in the lead role of the movie ‘Rohingya’ directed Haider Khan.  

It is learned that 90 percent work of the movie is done in Assam, India. However, ‘Rohingya’ is not about Rohingyas taking shelter in Bangladesh. 

The story of the film centers on a woman named ‘Hosne Ara’ where the overall problems of Rohingya will be highlighted. 
Rohingya intrusion by facing horrible experience — such a story of refugees will come up on the big screen.  

“The film has no politics,” says Mithila. “The film originally depicts a Rohingya girl’s love story where I am working on a lead role.” 

“I am going to India for a 10-day schedule on Tuesday to finish the remaining ten percent work. The shooting will take place in Manali, Tripura.”

“I have been offered work in many Bangladeshi films. But I was not called for the lead role,” Mithila said regarding her work in ‘Rohingya’ adding that “everyone is afraid to work with newcomers. So without a lead role, I was not interested in movie work. But in this Bollywood film, I am playing my desired role which is a great opportunity for me as a Bangladeshi”.

The poster was released on January 28. In the poster, Mithila is seen as a mysterious woman with a keen eye and holds a gun in hand. 

Sangay Tsheltrim, former ‘Mr. Bhutan’ will be seen playing opposite her in the film. Samar Batra, Shreyansh Mishra, Darjei Wangchuk, Gautam Gosain, Ali Johar are also starring the film. There are plans to release ‘Rohingya’ this year, that is, mid-2020.
