The young artistes, who earned stardom in short period of time for mainly winning reality shows, were criticised at a seminar organised by Actors Equity held on Tuesday at the seminar hall of Bangladesh Shilpakala Academy.
These youths do not have good training in acting but do not follow the disciplines of the
TV industry, which is maintained by the seniors for many years, reads the keynote paper presented at the seminar by the organisation vice-president Azad Abul Kalam.
Actors Equity president Shahidul Alam Sachchu, its advisor Mamunur Rashid, secretary Ahsan Habib Nasim, joint secretary Rawnak
Hasan, programme secretary Bonna Mirza, among others were present at the seminar.
‘These young artistes maintain good relations with producers and dominating persons of the industry rather than focusing on developing their skill and behaviour. Some journalists also give them undue coverage that somehow develop a kind of arrogance among such artistes,’ reads the paper.
Azad also criticised some cultural journalists, who feature the newcomers for almost no reason. ‘Some of them also publish fabricated reports on personal affairs of the celebrities in newspapers and online portals,’ he added.
He expected developing a good and respectful relation among the people concerned in the TV industry.
