What you are up to nowadays?
Recently, I have completed the shooting of an Eid special drama series which is the sequel of “Genduchora.” Along with that, I have also done some some single-episode plays and telefilms. At present, a few of my TV plays are airing on various channels including Anjan Aich’s “Jol Phoringer Gaan,” Amirul Islam’s “Songsar Simante,” Fahim Sarker’s “Prothom Prem,” and Shotirtho Rahman’s “Udor Pindi Budhor Ghare.”
What about television plays?
Banglavision recently completed airing one of my drama series “Nij Grihe Porobashi.” Right now I am on the lookout for an interesting story for my next directorial venture. I want to find something unique for the audience and am looking forward to presenting them with a new plot.
Any film projects in the pipeline?
I have already selected a story and at the moment, I am working on the pre-production phase of the movie. Film is a big venture, therefore, I am taking my time to move ahead with the project. Hopefully, I will start shooting for my film at the end of this year.
So what is the current tally?
So far I have directed 6 drama series and approximately 5 telefilms and single episode plays.
All of my acting projects are in my favourites list. When I am working in a play, every role is dear to me and I try to deliver my best every time. But, I have really enjoyed my role as Nilmoni in a TV play titled “Sundori,” which is based on a story in Sundarban. Other roles I will always remember are from “Kon Kanoner Phul,” and “Somoy Oshomoy.” As a director, my favourite directorial work is “Pathor,” which is a theatre play.
How do you always manage to get into the character you play?
Acting is my passion and profession. I always try to blend in with the role and think of nothing else during that period. While acting, I give all my priority and attention to that particular role.
Based on your experience over the years, how do the new generation actors compare?
They are all doing a great job. Nowadays, the newcomers enter the entertainment industry after learning or studying about their specific interest in the field of work. Their dedication and effort is appreciable.
What are your observations regarding the state of television today?
Our TV industry has grown over the years. Small screen has a big market and that is why so many praiseworthy and creative productions are coming forward. Now, a director can work on experimental projects and newcomers are undertaking contemporary pieces which add something new every day. I think good works should be promoted by all and receive critics’ and audience recognition.
