Noted actor Faruque Ahmed, known to the viewers for playing comical characters, has acted in six short drama series and five teleplays this Eid.
Among his Eid works, the actor mentioned Arif Rahman’s teleplay Mir Zafar-er Mrittu Chai and Sagor Jahan’s Eid drama serial Average Aslam is not a Bachelor are remarkable names.
The last episode of Jahan’s Eid seven-episode drama serial will be aired today on Banglavision at 6:25pm today.
The actor recently spoke to New Age about his Eid ventures, current situation of teleplays and others.
Faruque Ahmed said he always enjoys acting in Eid teleplays as teleplays produced for Eid are watched by viewers across the country.
‘Teleplays aired during Eid are watched by a large number of viewers across the country. Actors always look forward to act in such teleplays and try to deliver their best performance,’ said Faruque Ahmed.
Ahmed, who has been acting for 25 years, has acted on stage, small screen and films. However, according to the actor, he has enjoyed most success while acting on the small screen. He won viewer’s acclaim for playing comical characters in the teleplays of late novelist Humayun Ahmed.
‘I consider myself fortunate as I had the opportunity to know late Humayun Ahmed personally and act in most of his teleplays. He was a wonderful person,’ Ahmed said.
When asked about the current situation of teleplays, Ahmed, who has acted in over one thousand teleplays till date, said hiring of inept actors in the teleplays is a major reason for the declining quality of local productions.
‘Many inept actors who have neither the experience nor the necessary knowledge of acting are flooding the small screen these days. Until this trend changes the situation will not improve,’ he said.
