Being born in Gopalganj, Xunayed was lucky to get in touch with Mashrafe Bin Mortaza. Seeing his strong love to cricket, Mashrafe used to inspire him. He calls Mashrafe as ‘Kaushik Bhai’. All his dreams about cricket were smashed as he sustained a sudden injury. Since then, he started weaving dreams over acting.

Xunayed told risingbd: “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 forehead did not favour me. I have been cherishing a thought of doing something for the country since my childhood. I decided to act when the dream of becoming a cricketer did not come true.
