Actor Afran Nisho has been a subject of widespread discussion and appreciation this year, courtesy of his commendable performance in his debut silver screen project, "Shurongo". Since then, he has found himself inundated with numerous scripts and film proposals, even from the other Bengal across the border.
Shahiduzzaman Selim's recent films, “Shurongo” and “Priyotoma”, generated significant buzz, and at present, he's gracing the screen in two new cinematic ventures, “Omar” and “Lipstick”. The actor recently shared some of his insights about the entertainment industry with The Daily Star.
Released during Eid, "Shurongo" gained an overwhelming response from moviegoers, with theatres across the country, including Dhaka, filling up within weeks of its release. This wave of success, however, has now extended beyond theatres to make a mark on OTT platforms.
One of the highest grossing films of Last Eid Ul Adha, can now be enjoyed on a global scale as an extended version of “Shurongo” will soon be released on Chorki. Directed by Raihan Rafi, the film marks Afran Nisho’s debut into the silver screen.
The magic of Eid-ul-Adha continues to reverberate across theatres in Bangladesh as five Eid films mark their triumphant 50-day journey on the silver screen. On the occasion of Eid, five films were released in theatres– Himel Ashraf's "Priyotoma," Raihan Rafi's "Shurongo," Bandhan Biswas' "Laal Shari," Chayanika Chowdhury's "Prohelika," and Saikat Nasir's "Casino." These movies, each with its own unique narrative and style, crossed the 50-day milestone.
Tama Mirza is on cloud nine with the thunderous response to “Shurongo”. Even in its sixth week, the film is running successfully across theatres. It is also doing well in Kolkata, USA and Canada.
Recently, Star Cineplex has released the list of top 10 movies of Star Cineplex for the month of July. And two Bangladeshi films have spotted the top two positions, beating top Hollywood big-budget movies.
