Popular filmmaker Mostafa Sarwar Farooki and nine of his associates, known as Bhai Barathar, will direct eight Eid teleplays, which will be aired on private television channel Channel-i during the upcoming Eid-ul-Azha celebrations.
Besides Farooki, Redoan Rony, Ashfaq Nipun, Mahmudul Islam, Abdullah Al Muktadir, Fahad Khan, Nazmul Nabin, Mahmudul Hasan Adnan, Momin Biswas and Lotus Majumder will direct the teleplays under the banner Bhai Barathar Express.
The names of seven teleplays were announced at a press conference held on Tuesday at Channel-i office in Tejgaon. The teleplays are Ayesha, Pata Jhorar Din, Sonali Danar Chil, The Artist, Patla Khan Lane-eBagh Asiyachilo, Ajke Na Hoy Bhalobaso and Liton-er Niriha Flat.
Farooki will direct two teleplays including Ayesha, which is based on Anisul Hoque’s novel Ayesha Mangal. The name of the other teleplay will be declared later on.
Managing director of Channel i Faridur Reza Sagor, Unilever Bangladesh (Beauty and Personal Care) director Nafis Anwar, Mostafa Sarwar Farooki and his associates were present at the press conference.
Through the two teleplays Farooki, who had earlier announced not to direct any teleplay in 2010, will make a comeback.
‘I feel nostalgic when I think about directing teleplays after ten long years for Channel-i as my first works were aired on the channel. I hope viewers will find these teleplays entertaining’, said Mostafa Sarwar Farooki.
‘As I remain busy with films, I do not get much time for directing teleplays. However, I may make teleplays whenever I can,’ said Farooki.
Faridur Reza Sagar said he is happy at Frooki’s comeback.
‘It is a pleasure for us to announce that Mostafa Sarawar Farooki and his associates, known as Bhai Barathar, are going to make eight eid teleplays for Channel-i’, said Faridur Reza Sagor.
