Early life[edit]

Manna was born in 1964 in the village of Elenga in Tangail District, Manna acted in over 350 movies. Most of them have done profitable business in an era when the Dhaka-based movie industry faced a drought. Manna's career was initiated in 1984 after he was discovered through a talent search programme by the National Film Development Corporation of Bangladesh.

Manna was the General Secretary of the Bangladesh Film Actors Association.[citation needed] As the General Secretary, Manna was active in the ongoing movement against "vulgarity" in the Dallywood film industry. One of the first films that brought Manna to attention was Danga (1992). Other Manna blockbusters are Traash, Chadabaaz and Amma Jaan, the last of which made him a renowned actor in Bangladesh.[citation needed]

On average, Manna acted in 10 movies each year. Among films released last year, Manna played lead roles in commercially successful films including Shajghar, Khomotar Garom, Moner Shathey Juddho, Machine-man, Ulta-Palta 69 and Shotru Shotru Khela.
