Concerns over the coronavirus pandemic forced television producers and directors to stop productions at once, since the nationwide shutdown began in March. As a result, a number of television projects were put on hold.
Despite such hindrances, top television channels of the country have included some exceptional shows and films in their Eid-Ul-Fitr schedules. Below is a list of programmes that will be aired on different channels throughout the festive season.
Written by Pantho Shahriar and directed by Arif Khan, the eight-episode television drama Rekha, featuring Aupee Karim and Afzal Hossain, will be aired from the first day of Eid-Ul Fitr on Channel i at 6:10 pm.
The telefilm, Mone Mone, starring Farin and Shajal in pivotal roles and directed by Chayanika Chowdhury, will be aired on the fifth day of Eid on Maasranga Television at 7:30 pm.
