What is Mosharraf Karim up to in Malaysia?
Mosharraf Karim, probably the busiest TV actor in the country, has had a plethora of TV plays last Eid, and it seems like there is not much of a respite for him.
Mosharraf is now gearing up for Eid ul-Azha ventures and has been on location in Malaysian capital Kuala Lumpur over the past week.
His new projects include three Eid plays and the continuation of a running drama serial, to be shot there. All four plays have been helmed by Shamim Zaman.
Mosharraf will play the lead role in the six episode play “Smart boy Malaysia-e”. His castmates includes director Shamim Zaman along with Shazu Khadem, Shokh, Faruk Ahmed, Jui Karim and more.
“I've been here many times before for filming, but this is the first time I have come with my dear friend Shamim Zaman,” Mosharraf told The Daily Star over phone.
The actor will also be playing a villain-turned-hero in “Oti Lobhey TaaNti Noshto”. Again, joining the star are actors Shazu Khadem, Shamim Zaman, Shokh, Faruk Ahmed, Jui Karim and more. The six-episode play features Mosharraf as a mafia don's henchman who creates trouble for Bangladeshi migrant workers or tourists. “The play explores the concept of greed and its possible consequences, and contains a powerful message for viewers,” said Karim.
The actor will be seen as a migrant worker running a hotel business in the play “Chok Chok Korlei Shona Hoy Na”. After the completion of this Eid venture, the actor will resume filming for the ongoing drama serial “Jhamela Unlimited”, where he plays the character Soban. Aired by Rtv, 150 episodes have been aired so far. Director Shamim Zaman stated that the location was essential to all the plays' plots.
When asked about the advantages of shooting abroad, the director stated, “By filming in a new location, we are taking the viewers somewhere new as well. So far we have worked in the picturesque Kuala Lampur and Putrajaya. This gives us the opportunity to travel to new places and we all look forward to catching up with each other after a hard day's work.”
