Eminent writer Hasan Azizul Huq’s acclaimed novel Agunpakhi, which has won many awards like Prothom Alo Book of the Year Award (2007) and Ananda Purashkar (2008), is going to be made into a drama series.
This novel is based on the 1947 partition of India. It is set in West Bengal in early twentieth century. The readers get a glimpse into the then society in the novel which revolves around everyday life of a rural housewife and her struggles.
The upcoming series will be directed by Parvez Amin, who has previously directed two drama series based on novels.
When asked about his upcoming venture, Parvez Amin replied, ‘Partition of India in 1947 not only geographically divided the land and created new countries but also separated people based on religion. I want to give the viewers a glimpse into those tumultuous days,’ said Parvez Amin.
‘Currently we are developing the script. The shooting of the series will commence at the end of this year. The series will be aired on Deepto TV,’ Parvez added.
