Bulbul Ahmed remembered
Cultural organisation “Swapnalok” arranged a memorial programme marking the fourth death anniversary of noted actor-director Bulbul Ahmed at the seminar room of Bangladesh Shilpakala Academy (BSA) on July 15.
Noted film director Chashi Nazrul Islam, Bulbul's wife, actress Daisy Ahmed, theatre personality Jhuna Chowdhury and assistant director of BSA Irin Parvin spoke at the event. Firoz Khan presided over the memorial programme emceed by Pankaj Kabir.
“Bulbul Ahmed is the symbol of a real hero. In my 52-year career in film, I can say from my experience that I have never seen a clean personality like him. Nowadays, actors become haughty even with a little fame. I have never seen him feeling proud of his fame,” said Chashi Nazrul Islam.
An emotional Daisy Ahmed also recalled memories of her husband.
“Bulbul Ahmed was a humble person. He had such an acting quality for which director Chashi Nazrul Islam chose Ahmed for shooting Devdas. Eminent actor-director Soovash Dutta also highly appreciated the Mahanayak,” said Jhuna Chowdhury.
Litterateur Imdadul Haq Milon once interviewed Ahmed for a programme titled “Ki Katha Tahar Sathey” that was screened at the event. Later, a film “Simana Periye”, in which he acted, was also screened at the programme.
