Popular Dhallywood villain Misha Soudagar, who has recently announced his retirement from the silver screen, said he hopes to continue working for the local film scene behind the screen.
‘Acting in films really takes a lot out of you. It is very hard work and I am no longer fit to pursue an acting career. During the recent Eid vacation I contemplated much about my career and decided that it was time for me to retire from acting,’ said Misha, who has appeared in more than 800 films.
‘The decision is solely my own. I was not influenced by anyone regarding the matter,’ added Misha, who said he will continue working for the local film scene as an organiser.
‘I will remain involved with the film scene as an organiser. I will also work to promote our local films,’ said Misha, who is the president of Bangladesh Film Artistes’ Association.
Misha said though he has decided to retire as a professional actor he will act in selected films.
‘If I am offered a role in a film with a good storyline and the character suits my age, personality I will definitely act in the film,’ he said.
Misha Soudagar won the actor hunt contest arranged by BFDC in 1986. He acted as a hero in Chhotku Ahmed’s movie Chetona in 1990 and later played hero in the film Omorshongi. However, Misha did not find much success playing hero in films so the directors advised him play villain in films. Misha found success after playing villainous character in Jachche Bhalobasha in 1994. After that he went on playing negative roles in films. Some of his notable films include Shotter Mrittu Nei, Kabin Nama, Chacchu, Bondhu Tumi Sotru Tumi, Ontore Accho Tumi, and others.
