Shabnur was brought to film by noted director Ehtesham. Her first commercially successful film was released in 1994. That was only the beginning. She appeared in many successful films and established herself as a celebrity in the film industry. She also won the national film award.
But now she is not busy with film like before. She has received Australian citizenship and there is speculation that she may reside there permanently. Some of her family members including her sister live there. She will produce some films this year. It is not yet clear that whether she will produce from abroad like another noted actress Shabana or will stay in Bangladesh.
Some books are already published in the name of Shabnur. These books are the extracts of her interviews at different times.
Now Shabnur has decided to write herself. This book or autobiography will be rewritten by a professional writer then published in the coming book fair.
