Valentine's Day Specials on TV
Tomalika Karmakar, Chandni, Farah Ruma and Sohana Saba are teaming up for the first time this Valentine's Day, to dance on a show celebrating the occasion. Tomalika will pair up with actor Russell; the duo will portray the legend of Laili-Majnu. The delightful frolic of Radha-Krishna will be enacted by Chandni and Anisul Islam Hiru. Farah Ruma and Shohag will portray the roles of Mumtaz-Shahjahan, while Shahed and Sohana Saba will be Romeo-Juliet.
Chandni, who came up with the programme's planning, said it originated from her intention of making something special for Valentine's Day. She expressed hopes that people will like the programme, directed by Pappu. Tomalika said she is both excited and nervous -- as she hasn't danced on TV since her winning of the Notun Kuri award for dancing.
Shahed is also excited about the programme, as it is being done on a massive scale. Great expectations are also being fostered by Farah Ruma, as she only dances on special occasions.
Ekushey Television will air this special programme.
Ekushey Television's Valentine's Day offering also includes Chayanika Chowdhury's "Tumi Ami Tinjoney" -- a play written by Faria Hossain. Tarin, Apurba and Tutul act in the play to be aired tonight at 10:10pm.
