Asian Project Market (APM) announced its 22 official projects for this year on August 31. Mostofa Sarwar Farooqi's next film A Burning Question is one of them.

APM 2020 will be virtually held from October 12-14.

Prominent Bangladeshi actor Nusrat Imrose Tisha along with her husband Farooki will produce A Burning Question with the latter directing the project.

Farooki's English-language directorial debut No Land's Man, produced by Shrihari Shate, has yet to hit the theatres. The director will be collaborating with the American producer again for this project.

‘Bachelor’ director's last two back-to-back films have not been approved by the Censor Board yet, despite receiving praise abroad.

His last film Shonibar Bikel, a one-take technical feat, has been banned on the grounds that it might deepen the religious divide in the country.

In the past, Farooki said, “No one will understand the pain of going to the doors of ministers day after day. It makes me tired. Given an opportunity, I will definitely consider making movies somewhere else. I am that tired and annoyed.”

Farooki, a notable deshi face in international festivals, has time after time expressed his frustration with having to rely on the government’s whim to release a film in Bangladesh.

As a result, the filmmaker's decision to change direction and make more English-language films did not come as a surprise to his fans and followers.

According to reports, only one Bangladeshi star will appear in Farooki’s next film alongside a cast of well-known international actors.
