Blockbuster film “Dhaka Attack,” directed by Dipankar Dipon, set a new record by running both locally and overseas for 154 days straight on March 10. The film is reportedly a new record holder of being the longest running film in the history of Bangladesh.
The film’s director recently told the press that his film is running since its release. He also said that it was not screening for a week in Bangladesh but was running in US then. He also said that all of this was possible for the love from his viewers.
The record breaking film is still running at theatres including Shahin (Dhaka), Chompakoli (Tongi), Banani (Kushtia), Shapla (Rangpur) and Raj (Kuliarchar).
