Ilias Kanchan: The Tireless Warrior Speaks

Ilias Kanchan is a name known to all of us, not only for his super-hit movies, but also for the road safety movement that he has been working on since the last two and a half decades.

The National Film Award winner and Ekushey Padak awardee initiated his road safety movement “Nirapad Sarak Chai” in 1993 after the death of his wife in a tragic road accident, and ever since he has been working relentlessly to improve the road safety situation in Bangladesh.

This week, in a candid interview with Rafi Hossain, the veteran actor shares his views on the ongoing student protests demanding safer roads and the initiatives that can be taken to address the situation.
