A legendary Bangladeshi theatre and television actor, script writer, director, civil engineer and also a writer, Abul Hayat was born in 7th September. He started his stage performance at the age of 10 and he is the founder member of the pioneer theatre group of Bangladesh which is “Nagorik Natya Sampradaya”. He has acted in over 1000 television dramas, 1000 nights at stage, 100 movies, 100 radio dramas, done with modeling in 520 television commercials and written 26 books in total. He received several prestigious awards including the “National Film Award” for Best Actor in supporting role in 2007, and was also awarded the “Ekushey Padak” for his outstanding contribution in cultural fields in 2015 by the Government of Bangladesh.

FILMS

I have watched a lot of movies in my life. The movies of Satyajit Ray are my favorites; and “Pather Panchali” is one of those movies. In my student life, some of my favorite movies were “The Guns of Navarone”, “The Fall of the Roman Empire” and “Roman Holiday”. The movies of Uttam Kumar and Suchitra Sen have always been my favorites. A legendary film of our country: “Jibon Theke Neya” by Zahir Raihan is my all-time favorite.

FUTURE PLANS

Acting has always been my loyal companion and my thirst for acting is ceaseless. I am currently focusing more on acting and direction in television media. Recently, I am directing a serial titled “Tin Pagole Holo Mela” on Channel I which is jointly written by me and Kamrul Ahsan. The story of this drama is about searching for the truth by three young men. In the near future, I have a plan to direct a movie. And of course, I want to die on stage.

The fabulous actor, director, and playwright, Abul Hayat has towered over the media world for over four decades in theatre, television and radio dramas, films and commercials. He has become a successful and honorable personality for his veteran contributions in the cultural arena.
