His angry young man image as Jash, aka Dr Jashojit has been stealing hearts of TV audiences. His chemistry with Shabnam, aka Manali Dey, is crackling. Meet Suman Dey, one of the lead actors of popular Bangla TV show Nakshi Kantha. While you love watching him on screen, how much do you actually know about your favourite actor? Let’s find out.

Suman was born and brought up in Siliguri in north Bengal. While sports was a passion during his growing up days, Suman had never given acting a thought. He did his schooling from Kurseong and was later sent to Bengaluru for higher education.

Model Act

2/6

The actor was in class nine when he watched a fashion show where his friend’s elder sister was showcasing her collection. His friends suggested that he work as a model. Suman liked the idea and started working on his body. He would carry an extra towel in his bag while going for his tuition classes so that his father doesn’t notice.

Mumbai Calling

3/6

He started working out as a model in Bengaluru while studying in Christ Church college. He did several commercials for well-known brands. Post graduating in commerce, he refused a job during campus interview and decided to move to Mumbai to try his luck. However, life was a struggle. He would stay in a chawl and began working as a gym instructor and audition for roles post 3 p.m. He would travel by local train.

Work Mode On

4/6

His worried father suggested that Suman take up a job. When the actor went for the interview, he found that the interviewer was someone who stayed in the same society where Suman worked as a gym instructor. He bagged the job and would audition in between his work. He even faced the casting couch. Later, he decided to shift to Kolkata. He sent his pictures to an entertainment channel and bagged a lead role in a Bangla serial.

A Foodie

5/6

While Suman is conscious about being fit and healthy, he confesses to being a huge foodie. He even works out extra before festivals because his mom (like all our moms) loves stuffing him with food whenever he is back home in Siliguri. The actor said in an interview that he puts on 3-4 kilos when he’s home thanks to his mom. Besides, he loves eating out when he’s with friends and hogs on everything from chicken to roti tadka.

He’s Single

6/6

In Nakshi Kantha, he’s madly in love with Shabnam. But in real life, Suman has been single for the last two years. But thanks to his celeb status, Suman says there’s no way he can check out girls or even ask for their numbers (girls here’s your cue).
