Being a television director, script writer and actor, Humayun Sadhu is a man who wears many hats. He has also written the book, Nonai, which will be unveiled at this year's Ekushey Boi Mela. He also hopes to direct films in the near future. We caught up with the artiste to find out more about his work.
Tell us about your current projects.
We have completed all the preparations for a web series that I am directing and we will begin filming in Dhaka next month. The story of the web series revolves around hackers. Besides that, I am also looking to direct a number of television serials, but right now, I am focusing on writing scripts.
You have acted in the telefilm, Un Manush, directed by Mostafa Sarwar Farooki. It was widely well received by the audience. How did you come about the script and how was the experience?
I used come to Dhaka from Chittagong to have meetings with Mostafa Sarwar Farooki regarding different scripts that I had written. That is how I eventually joined his production house, Chabial and started working as his assistant. He wanted me to act in Un Manush, which was a highlight in my career. After watching it, director Tareque Masud had commented that Farooki took a huge risk. It was a great experience.
Are you currently acting in any other projects?
I am currently acting in the hit serial, Saat Bhai Champa and I also played a part in the film, Beauty Circus. However, I am mainly interested in working behind the scenes. I started my professional journey as an assistant to Mostafa Sarwar Farooki, and I developed a fondness for directing since then.
Your book, Nonai, is coming out at the Ekushey Boi Mela. What can you tell us about the book?
Besides scripts, I enjoy writing stories. I have written several stories, staying up late at nights over the years. All of those stories are compiled in the form of a book in Nonai. The book is published by Bhuibob. I hope that readers will enjoy it.
