Biva, you’ve accomplished a lot in the industry. Can you tell us about your journey from being a graduate to becoming an actress?
Biva Jamatia: Absolutely! It’s been quite the journey. Initially, I was quite shy and introverted, but I always had a passion for dancing. I remember my first big stage performance during the Jamatia Fresher’s Meet. Dancing helped me overcome my shyness. In 2017, I received my first music video proposal for “Malaina Kwrwi”, and that marked the beginning of my acting career. From then on, there was no turning back. Acting became my comfort zone, and I started gaining confidence.
You’ve worked on numerous music videos. Do you have any favorites among them?
Biva Jamatia: It’s indeed a tough choice because everyone puts in so much effort to entertain the audience. However, if I had to pick, I would say “Nuklaiyya,” “Khani Khatijak,” “Dehma,” “Kaslei Kwlaiwanw,” “Kisa Kisa Khe,” and “Nono Wanswk Wansugui” hold a special place for me.

Biva Jamatia: Struggles are an integral part of life, and I consider them a gift. Initially, society’s acceptance was limited, and support was scarce. There were negative comments, but with time, things changed. Now, I’m fortunate to have a massive support system on platforms like Instagram, Facebook, and YouTube. I strive to maintain a positive image because my supporters have high expectations, and I want to meet them by working hard and entertaining them.
Who are some of your favorite artists in the industry?
Biva Jamatia: In the female category, I greatly admire Parmita Reang and Bipasha Reang. Among the male artists, Swkang Debbarma and Nuai Debbarma stand out for me. Additionally, I have a comfortable working relationship with Aditya Debbarma, which is crucial in creating on-screen chemistry that resonates with the audience.
