Like Mainkar Chipay, WTFry can be watched for free in Bangladesh

After the success of their first Bangladeshi Original “Mainkar Chipay”, ZEE5 Global, the largest global OTT platform for South Asian content, released the trailer of its second Bangladeshi Original, “WTFry”.  The short film is being launched in 190+ countries across the globe.

“WTFry” is an entertaining short film revolving around the lives of a film star Shama and a software developer Bashar. While Shama is an absolute firebrand, intelligent and impulsive; on the other hand, Bashar is a simple, straight-forward, minimalist guy. Shama’s world revolves around social media; Bashar lives rooted in reality. As the completely paradoxical worlds of Shama and Bashar collide, the journey of finding true love in an era of superficiality takes its own course.

Directed by national award-winning director, Anam Biswas, ‘WTFry’ has been shot within a compellingly short span of four days. This indie film also stars Sakib Bin Rashid and Iresh Zaker.

The streaming platform has also revealed the poster of the film featuring lead actors Bidya Sinha Mim and Pritom Hasan. With this latest Bangla content offering, which will premiere on January 9. Like Mainkar Chipay, WTFry can be watched for free on ZEE5 Global by viewers in Bangladesh.
