Early life and education edit

Hayat completed her master's from the Faculty of Fine Arts, University of Dhaka in 1998.[5]

Career edit

During the 90's Hayat played many popular television dramas. She wrote her first TV play "Shudhui Tomake Jani" in 1997.[5]

She acted in two liberation war related movies Aguner Poroshmoni and Joyjatra. The first of those which was directed by Humayun Ahmed, she portrayed the role of a young girl who was blocked in her house with her family inside the city of Dhaka. Ratri as her characters name fell in love with a guerrilla freedom fighter (played by Asaduzzaman Noor) who lived in their house during the war for shelter. Her affection towards the fighter reflects the support and contribution of the civilians to the guerrilla fighters of the war. In Joyjatra, her character was much more different as she acted as a middle-aged mother who lost her son as she tried to escape from an army attack.[citation needed]

Hayat won an award at the 17th Asian Art Biennale for her mixed-media work Memoir (2016)[6]
