Shahriar Nazim Joy in 25 Eid-special plays
Actor Shahriar Nazim Joy is busy shooting TV plays -- 25 of them to be exact -- for the upcoming Eid. One of them, “Kokkhopoth,” is being directed by Alvi Ahmed. Nusrat Imroz Tisha is Joy's co-artiste in the play. The actor recently talked about his projects in the pipeline. Excerpts:
Apparently you are working with Eshita after six years…
Joy: Yes. Six years back, we acted in the TV play “Pata Jhorey Brikkho Morey Na,” directed by Sohel Arman. Eshita and I are currently working on a single-episode play, “Titir O Shongkhochil,” written and directed by me. The play is part of the special programmes to be aired on Desh TV this Eid-ul-Fitr.
How many TV plays directed by you will go on air this Eid?
Joy: I have written and directed seven single-episode plays for the upcoming Eid. Of them, “Sharthopor” will be aired on BTV.
Are you contemplating directing drama serials?
Joy: (On a lighter note) Let me try my hand at some one-day matches (single-episode TV plays). If I succeed, I will go for test matches.
