Before her rather mysterious departure from the Dhallywood scene, Apu Biswas was one of the most bankable leading ladies of the country's film industry. After a one-and-a-half year hiatus during which she focused on motherhood, Apu Biswas is back in the scene, preparing for her full-fledged return. And now she has a comeback project locked.
Badiul Alam Khokon's “Kangal” will see the actress join Bappy and DA Tayeb, filming for which is set to begin in December. Misha Sawdagar and Anwara are also among the cast.
Asked about her role, Apu told The Daily Star: “I want to leave the story and my character a bit of a surprise. All I can say now is that I have never worked in such a role before.”
“Badiul Alam Khokon is a renowned director. I have worked with him before. It is exciting to be coming back to the big screen under his direction,” the actress added.
Asked about her preparation for the film, Apu said: “I will begin work with 100% preparation. I am regularly hitting the gym and shedding some weight. My viewers are my life, and I want to give my best for them.”
Although this marks Apu's first new project, she has recently wrapped up filming for an older film titled “Panku Jamai”, which was left incomplete because Apu was taking a break for her motherhood.
Apu Biswas, who has 86 films to her credit, is half of one of the most successful on-screen pairings of Dhallywood in recent years, with Shakib Khan. The duo has done 57 films together, the latest of which to release was “Rajneeti” which came out earlier this year.
