Tony Dias making his big screen debut
A familiar face on small screen, Tony Dias, is set to make his big screen debut. Tony will be seen in Nargis Akhter's soon-to-be released feature film Megher Koley Roud. The actor informed that the film is set to be released on August 1 in five theatres in Dhaka including Star Cineplex, Balaka and Madhumita.
Apart from Tony, the film also features film actors Riaz and Popy. The film depicts a love triangle among Akash (Riaz), Rodela (Popy) and Nijhum (Tony). Nijhum and Rodela study in Kualalampur. Akash and Nijhum are childhood friends. Akash reunites with Nijhum in Kualalampur after living in London for a few years. After meeting Rodela, Akash falls for her. Nijhum is also in love with Rodela. The film moves ahead delineating the joys and agonies in three lives. The late Pranab Ghosh did the music for the film.
According to Tony, “Megher Koley Roud is not my first film. Poush Masher Piriti, also directed by Nargis Akhter, is my first film but that is yet to be released.”
About his film debut, Tony said, “I always wanted to work in cinema that is decent and provides wholesome entertainment. When Nargis Akhter approached me, I accepted the offer right away.”
“I don't want to act in lot of films, but rather a few selected good projects,” Tony said.
Megher Koley Roud has been shot mostly in Malaysia. About his co-artistes in the film, Tony said, “We had a lot of fun during the shooting. Riaz and Popy are both accomplished film actors. Both of them were very helpful as co-artistes.”
Tony has an optimistic vision about his film debut. He said, “I'm hopeful about the success of Megher Koley Roud. I hope my performance in the film lives up to the expectations of the audience.”
