Legendary Assamese Film Actress
Assamese film actress has been playing a very significant role in the development of the movie industry since the time of its beginning.
This is true that a society grows only then when women co-operate with it.
Please don’t angry at me………..(For Men’s)
But I think…….
Men cannot do anything alone. This same theory works on the platform of the Assamese film industry.
If we look in the past of this venue then we found that 1st Assamese film was made on and even with a woman;
Oh, come on……You know it all.
Yes! it was Joymati.
Joymati released in 1935, here Aideo Handique played the main featured role.
Therefore today Aideo Handique is known as the first Assamese Assamese film of the industry.
She sacrificed her life to develop this film industry by her first and last historic film Joymati.
Do you know how and why?
Ok, I will explain to you…………..
At that time the belief system of the traditional Assamese society was very narrow-minded, hence she had to pass her whole life as an unmarried woman or alone. Nobody came further to marry her for some stupid social beliefs.
Ok in further reading I will explain you the main fact about this cause.
Today we should respect her not only as the first Assamese actress but also as she was a revolutionary woman against some unfair social beliefs.
