Throughout her three-decade career, she appeared in 299 films among which, she co-starred with Alamgir in 130 of them.[3]

Early life and career[edit]

Shabana's family has originated in Dabua, Raozan area in Chittagong. She started her acting career co-starring with Pakistani actor Nadeem in Urdu film Chakori in 1967.[3] She acted in 299 films in Bengali and Urdu, and one in Hindi titled Shatru where she starred with Indian actor Rajesh Khanna in 1986. The film was directed by Pramod Chakravorty.[4] She acted with actors like Nadeem, Razzak, Bulbul Ahmed, Prabir Mitra, Shawkat Akbar, Subhash Dutta, Rahman, Syed Hasan Imam, Ujjal, Alamgir, Jashim, ATM Shamsuzzaman, Khasru, Sohel Rana, Mahmud Koli, Ilyas Kanchan, Wasim (actor), Humayun Faridi, Javed Sheikh and Rajesh Khanna.

Shabana-Nadeem pair[edit]

Shabana first acted with Pakistani film actor Nadeem in her debut Urdu film Chakori in 1967. Her cosmopolitan roles included Anari, Chotey Sahab, Chand aur Chandni and Chand Suraj - an experimental film by Pakistani director Mustafiz, similar in technique to Robert Altman's latter-day, "Shortcuts", the first half was devoted to the relationship between Waheed Murad and Rozina, while later unconnected interludes were focused on Shabana and evergreen co-star Nadeem.

Shabana's last East Pakistani movie was Andhi (joint venture) in 1991. She resurfaced in the 80's, when co-productions among South Asian countries became a popular style of film making including roles in Basera (1984) and Aandhi (1991) again all with Nadeem. She was also starred in Pakistan-Turkey co-production film Halchal with Pakistani actor Javed Sheikh in 1986.

Personal life[edit]

Shabana retired from acting in 1998 and immigrated to the United States to live with her family members.[1] She has been married to Bangladeshi film producer Wahid Sadik since 1973. They have two daughters and one son.
