Zahid Hasan has been in the entertainment industry for twenty years, garnering acclaim for not just his remarkable acting on television and the silver screen, but as a director as well. In a recent chat with The Daily Star, the National Film Award winner discusses his upcoming Eid projects and more.
How many tele-fictions have your directed this Eid?
I have directed two tele-fictions, Driver Dalim, written by Adi Bashi Mizan and Lofad, written by Zakir Hossain Uzzal.
Tell us about few of the Eid projects that you are acting in.
I am working on two seven-episode television serials, directed by Adi Bashi Mizan. I also filmed two tele-fictions in Nepal.
Where are you celebrating Eid?
I hope to be in Dhaka with my family. I used to celebrate it in Sirajganj, when my parents were alive. I might go there on the second day of Eid. I have some of my fondest Eid memories in Sirajganj.
You have also acted in the Kolkata-based film, Sitara. When is it releasing?
I do not know the exact date as of yet. Sitara is based on the novel Bhorer Prosuti by Abul Bashar. I can tell you that it is an amazing film.
Shonibar Bikel was recently screened at Russia. How was the experience?
Shonibar Bikel has a great story. It was an honour to be able to represent Bangladesh on a global platform with that film.
