Ratna got the first glimpse of the film industry at the age of 10, as a child actress of 'Notun Shur' cinema in 1962. Later on, her film career was affirmed by being the lead actress of Chakori cinema in 1967. From the late 60s to mid-90s, Shabana ruled as one of the top actresses for decades and acted in around 500 films where she presented the true picture of affectionate Bengali women. Even the black and white hazy camera of the sixties could not conceal her beauty.

When the legendary Bangladeshi actress Arifa Parvin Zaman, popularly known as Moushumi signed the contract to be a cameo with Nusrat Faria in 2015, pictures of Moushumi and Nusrat Faria circulated over the internet. Moushimi caught the limelight and the latest Nusrat Faria was overshadowed beside Moushumi.
Fans critiqued Nusrat Faria's image as her lips looked swollen, suggesting she has changed her lip shape. Whereas, fans were stunned with Moushumi's grace in a shimmery golden saree with her charming smile being intact over the years.
