Television of a lifetime


Ali Imam is known for acting as a host in various programs apart from children's show. People in the television institute used to say that he could do anything. One only needs to brief him about the content and then he would be able to perform a perfect shot in front of the camera. Ali Imam could talk about any topic in front of the camera. In the history of television, there are instances were documentaries were made on a topic but the script was not written well. In those instances Ali Imam would watch the documentary and make out his own speech from it.

From the beginning Television was introduced in our country to bring families together. There was a deep connection between family and the television. Whenever television artists had to go outside for various programs, they would encounter their fans. And through such meetings they were able to realize the love and support the audience hold in their heart for them.

Whenever a normal audience encounters a television artist, they usually ask the general questions such as: How are you, How is everything going, what drama are you doing right now? Etc.

The reason behind people love for television could be the love, respect and adoration between the television artists.

People who used to watch television regularly could easily recognize the producers of the movie by seeing the actors in the film or they could easily recognize the artists in the program by seeing the producer's name.  

Due to love, care and wonderful teamwork between artists and producer, the audience were gifted with amazing programs. 

In terms of movies, there is a saying that whenever a celebrity gets married their popularity decreases among the audience. This saying falls flat for television. Rather it can be said that in the 50 years history of television no massive scandal has been exposed like as we see in our film industry people

Most of the producers in television established an amazing bonding with artists.  With the production of a program, they were able to create wonderful understanding between them. This understanding and warmth endured the perils of time as they were able to create a superb connection between the television and its audience. This connection enamoured the audience and captured their attention for a longer period of time.

In terms of television producers, the first name that comes to mind is that of Barkatullah. He was a dance artist who turned into a TV producer. Later on he resigned from television after being a higher official. He fell in love and got married to Zeenat Barkatullah. Zeenat Barkatullah was another well-known artist of Bangladesh.

The couple Zeenat and Barkatullah had two daughters who were involved in television programs. Bijori Barkatullah is not only a renowned dance artist but also a famous artist in drama. And their other daughter Kajori Barkatullah, apart from answering mails in Ittyadi, is also famous for being a producer and a host.

Bijori Barkatullah's husband Shawkat Ali Imon is highly involved with the music industry.

Producer Mustafizur Rahman got married to artist Rowshon Ara Mustafiz. The couple had two sons, Ovik and Rana. Both of them are also closely involved with television.

Rehnuma Kamal is a regular news reader in television. She is the daughter of Mustafa Kamal Sayeed and voice artist Zeenat Rehana. Apart from producer-artist relationship, the audiences have created lots of pairs in their dreams. They don't even know whether this relationship truly exists or not but they still dream to see them as pair.

During the beginning of television, the first pair that become famous among the audience and is still able to gift us many such wonderful drama is none other than the popular pair: Abdullah Al Mamun and Ferdousi Mujumder.
