The caring attitude of the actress towards the anchored animals has been coming to light in recent years. For these kinds of benevolent activities outside of her acting, she is going to win the ‘PranobikBondhu’ Award. Let’s get to know about actress Jaya Ahsan and her endless love for animals.
Journey of Jaya Ahsan in the film industry
Joya Ahsan has become a sensational star of two Bengals, which is certainly a huge achievement in her long acting career. She made her big-screen debut in 2004 with ‘Bachelor’ of MostafaSarwarFarooqi. Later, she became very popular in the film industry through ‘Guerrilla’ and ‘Chorabali’ movies. She started her career in mainstream cinema by starring in the commercially successful film ‘PurnoDoirghoPrem Kahini’-1 and 2.
After starting with the film ‘Aborto’ in 2013, Jaya continued to be a regular performer in Indian movies. The movie ‘Debi’ based on the story of the late Humayun Ahmed, the greatest filmmaker in Bangladesh, was released in 2018 from ‘C te Cinema’, her own production house. Not to mention, continuous success in different films has made the actress busier than ever before. Still, Joya gets out of time from her busy schedule to shower kindness to animals.
Jaya Ahsan as an animal lover
Jaya went on a four-day Sylhet tour with her mother and sister in 2018. This tour was originally courtesy of Cleopatra; Jaya’s pet dog, who she calls Patra. She had to leave Patra for a month to stay in Kolkata for a movie shoot. That’s why she had this trip to spend some quality time with Patra.
Moreover, Jaya regularly fed almost 30 street dogs in the Magbazar and Eskaton Garden areas. During the CoronaVirus epidemic, the actress joined the animal rights movement. This movement began with the Dhaka South City Corporation to protest the moving of 30,000 stray dogs out of the city.
