Zahid Hasan has a lot to offer this Eid. The popular actor has starred in both Eid special drama serials and teleplays being aired on different TV channels.

Zahid will be seen in seven-episode short-length drama serial Dey Dour, being aired on Banglavision at 6:10pm. Besides, he will be seen in ETV’s seven-episode drama serial No Ojuhaat at 7:20pm tonight.

In Dey Dour, the actor will be seen alongside Nusrat Imrose Tisha and Salauddin Lavlu, while No Ojuhaat stars Zahid Hasan, Nabila, Runa Khan, Shamima Naznin and others.

‘Short-length Eid serials are in demand among viewers. People like to watch short-length drama serials as most of these serials comprise five to ten episodes, unlike traditional drama serials which are much longer in duration,’ said Zahid Hasan, who also pointed out the reason behind the rise of short-length drama serial.

‘When it comes to drama serials that run for very long, people find it difficult to keep track of each and every episode due to shortage of spare time. So they prefer drama serials which are short and easier to follow,’ observed Zahid.

Besides drama serials, Zahid Hasan has acted in Eid teleplays like Bozlu Miyar Premik Mon, Driver Dalim, Sunglass Shofiq and others.

‘Most of the productions I am in are comedies designed to entertain people during Eid. I have really enjoyed shooting the Eid special programmes, which I hope viewers will find entertaining,’ said Zahid Hasan, who added that TV channels will face more competition from online platforms in coming days.

‘TV channels are gradually losing viewers due to excessive advertisements, unlike online streaming platforms. Most of the younger generation viewers are showing interest towards releasing and watching Eid programmes online,’ observed Zahid.

Zahid Hasan is going to make his debut in the Indian film industry with Ashish Roy’s Sitara. The release of the film, which was scheduled on May 31 in Bangla, Tamil and Telegu languages in different states of India, was postponed due to the Indian general elections.

‘The theatrical release of my upcoming film Sitara has been delayed due to the Indian general elections. I hope the film will be released soon,’ said Zahid.

Based on the novel Bhorer Proshuti by eminent writer Abul Bashar, Sitara revolves around the people living in India-Bangladesh border areas, who earn their livelihood through smuggling.

Alongside Zahid Hasan, local actors Fazlur Rahman Babu, Shahed Ali and Tollywood actress Raima Sen will be seen in pivotal roles in Sitara.
