The talent hunt hopes to find a new hero, heroine, comedian, villain and child artist for Bangladesh film industry
One of Bangladeshi film industry’s premier talent pipelines – Notun Mukher Sondhane – is making a comeback after 27 years.
Bangladesh Film Directors’ Association (BFDA) announced the return of FDC’s talent hunt contest at Dhaka Club on Sunday where an agreement was signed and the logo was unveiled.
BFDA members, veteran actors, and sponsors of the project were present at the event.
The event started off with a documentary on late Dhallywood stars Manna and Diti.
BFDA President Mushfiqur Rahman Gulzar said: “This talent hunt gave us stars like Manna, Diti, Sohel Chowdhury, Misha Sawdagar, Amin Khan, Amit Hasan, and many more.
”Bangladesh has actors who work in local theatre and stage dramas for all their lives. They are natural actors but never get the opportunity to flourish their talent on the big screen. We want to go to all the divisions and bring out talents like these from all over Bangladesh,” he added.
He also said the online registration for the event will start from September 1 and they are finalising the website for it.

Notun Mukher Sondhane - 2018 is organised by Bangladesh Film Directors’ Association in association with BFDC. The talent hunt will be managed by Off Track Events & Advertising and Team Engine.
The show’s broadcast partner is Asian TV.
Initiated by Bangladesh Film Development Corporation (BFDC) back in 1984, the contest discovered stars like Manna, Parveen Sultana Diti, Misha Sawdagar, Amit Hasan, Sohel Chowdhury, Amin Khan, and Sheli Quader (Manna’s wife), among others.
The contest however, ceased to continue since 1990, leading a prolonged gap.
