Release date of ‘Buker Moddhe Agun’ pushed back
Amidst the objections made by Salman Shah's family, the release of Hoichoi's new web-series, "Buker Moddhe Agun"—which is reportedly based on the mysterious demise of the Dhallywood star—has been postponed. Initially, the series was supposed to be released on February 17.
"We still have some unfinished work for the series. It will be difficult for us to finish it before February 17. That's why we don't want to take any risks," shared Sakib R Khan, Country Director of Hoichoi Bangladesh with the media.
As of now, the new release date has not been announced for the web-series.
Earlier Salman Shah's uncle, Alamgir Kumkum, sent a legal notice on February 6, through Sylhet Judge Court lawyer, Mohammad Moinul Islam, to the makers of the series.
"My client's nephew, Salman Shah, was found dead in his house. The mysterious death of my client's nephew was promoted as suicide, in order to cast it in a different light. The case filed by my client is currently pending in court. My client has noted, with deep concern, that recently a group has sought to produce a series based on the mysterious death of my client's nephew. It is not legal to create a series based on Salman Shah's death, as the case is still pending in court," read the notice.
Additionally, Salman Shah's mother, Nilufar Chowdhury, filed a writ petition in the High Court, through lawyer Farooq Ahmed, requesting that the series be halted. In this writ petition, she also requested a complete ban on the production of songs, dramas, movies, and web-series related to Salman Shah.
In "Buker Moddhe Agun", popular actor Ziaul Faruq Apurba will be seen in the lead role, playing a detective investigating the murder case of the popular star.
The star-studded web-series has also cast Tariq Anam Khan, Yash Rohan, Gazi Rakayet, Tauquir Ahmed, Tama Mirza and Shahnaz Sumi, among others.
