‘I eat and drink cinema’: Alamgir completes 50 years in showbiz today
Today is a special day for cinema lovers in Dhaka. On this day, the golden jubilee of the acting life of one of the most prolific actors. 50 years ago, on this day in 1972, he stood in front of the camera for the first time for the film 'Amar Janmabhoomi', directed by Alamgir Kumkum.
