Tanjim Saiyara Totini is making a name for herself in the country's tele-drama industry. Despite only starting her acting journey a few days ago, she has already caught the attention of viewers, directors, and co-artists alike with her unique performances in a few dramas. It's rare for a newcomer to perform so well, but Totini has proved herself to be a natural talent from the beginning.

Originally from Barishal, Totini is currently studying for her BBA at North South University. She first entered the media industry as a model for television commercials (TVCs) before her acting journey began when she became interested in seeing Afran Nisho in person on the set of Mahmudur Rahman Heme's drama serial 'House No 69.'

Totini credits Heme with teaching her a lot about acting and is especially grateful to him for it. However, it was her performance in the short film 'Somoy Sab Jaane' directed by Sakib Fahad as part of the 'Close-Up Kachhe Asar Galpo' short film series that brought her into the limelight as an actress.

Since then, Totini's involvement in the media has increased, particularly after her impressive performance in the Valentine's Day short film. She acted in two dramas during Eid-al-Fitr last year, 'Suhasini' by Mizanur Rahman Aryan and 'Bachibar Holo Tar Sadh' by Vicky Zaheed. Her appearance opposite Apurba in the tele-dramas during last Eid was also highly appreciated as a newcomer in 'Eso Haat Barao' directed by Mehedi Hasan Jony, and 'O Amay Bhalobaseni' directed by Muhammad Miftah Anan. Additionally, more dramas featuring Totini's incredible acting are waiting to be released on YouTube.

Totini dreams of becoming a great actress and is fully committed to that goal. She's inspired by actresses like Suborna Mustafa, Shomi Kaiser, and Nusrat Imrose Tisha, but Mehazabien Rahman is a particular inspiration for Totini as a newcomer. Totini's co-artists are all very optimistic about her potential, and she has impressed them with her performances opposite popular actors like Apurba, Afran Nisho, Naim, Tausif, and Jovan.

Overall, Totini is quickly becoming a favourite face in the tele-drama industry, and everyone is excited to see what she'll do next.
