Dhaka, Sept 19 (UNB) - The muhurat (launching ceremony) of a film based on a novel penned by Road Transport and Bridges Minister Obaidul Quader was held at Dhaka Club on Wednesday.
The shooting of the film based on novel ‘Gangchil’ will begin from next month. Its story is based on the life of people living in coastal belt of Cox’s Bazar.
Quader, also Awami League General Secretary along with Information Minister Hasanul Haq Inu, Cultural Affairs Minister Asaduzzaman Noor, State Minister for Information Tarana Halim, Bangladesh Film Directors Association president Mushfiqur Rahman Gulzar, Actors Tarik Anam Khan, Ferdous Ahmed, Actress Purnima and Rituparna Sengupta from Kolkata took part in the launching ceremony.
Minister Obaidul Quader said “The politicians of the sub-continent do not write novel but I have written it. I want to project the real life story of coastal people and that’s why I spend a week with the coastal people in Cox’s Bazar after my jail release.”
The novel Gangchil has become the best seller after release in the Ekushey Boi Mela. The minister said it was beyond his imagination that a cinema would be produced based on his novel.
Hasanul Haq Inu said the movie will play an important role to portray the development of the country.
Asaduzzaman Noor said it is a great example of a politician’s creative work.
