All his dreams about cricket were ruined as he sustained a sudden injury. Since then, he started weaving dreams overacting.
Xunayed said “We call Mashrafe ‘Kaushik Bhai’. Kaushik Bhai has supported me much. He also encouraged me. But I had to leave the game due to my injury. My dream of becoming a cricketer did not come true as my luck did not favour me. I have been cherishing a dream of doing something for the country since my childhood. I decided to act when my dream of becoming a cricketer did not favour me.

Talking about his future plans, Xunayed said, although I started working in media with YouTube, my target was the big screen. And I am preparing myself for that goal. I’m currently spending time with several dramas and fashion photoshoots. “I know it’s very difficult to get myself on the big screen now,” he said. But I do not want to give up. I will try my best, the rest depends on luck. “I want to be a good actor. I want to move ahead slowly with the love and blessings of everyone.”
