Mohiuddin Bahar was born on December 26, 1947 in Laxmipur village of Motbi Union in Feni. From his childhood, he started associating with drama organisations from his passion for acting. As a child artist, Bahar made his debut in BTV’s children’s series ‘Rose Rose’.
His journey in theatre began with theatre troupe Nagarik in 1986. In his television career, he went on to work with many notable creators including Humayun Ahmed, Hanif Sanket, Gias Uddin Selim and more.
