Emon began to draw media attention with several noteworthy performances in TV plays and commercials. “Daruchini Dwip” marked his debut in cinema, while in “Ek Buk Bhalobasha”, Emon played his first lead role. His unending row of successes led him to act opposite leading actresses of the country. Emon won much acclaim for his performance in the movie “Gohiney Shobdo”, and his latest release “Lal Tip” has also brought him a fair share of the limelight. The rising film star recently came to the DS Café to field a barrage of questions from his fans and admirers.
