Early life and educationEdit
During the 90's Hayat played many popular television dramas. She wrote her first TV play "Shudhui Tomake Jani" in 1997.
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.
Hayat's art works were displayed at Miniature Painting Exhibition in Gallery Tone in Dhaka in 1996. In 1998, she took part in a group art exhibition at Divine Art Gallery in Pan Pacific Sonergaon Hotel. Later, she took part in Nine Contemporary Young Artists Exhibition at Zainul Gallery, FFA in 2002.
Hayat married Tauquir Ahmed, an actor and film director. She is the daughter of actor and director Abul Hayat. Her sister Natasha Hayat and brother-in-law Shamim Shahed Khan both have acting careers. Bipasha and Natasha invested on a boutique house in 2008. She has a daughter named Arisha Ahmed and a son named Aareeb Ahmed.
