National award winning actors Mahfuz Ahmed and Jaya Ahsan will be seen as the lead actors in a psycho thriller movie titled “Zero Degree.”
The producer of the movie is Mahfuz Ahmed himself while popular TV play director Animesh Aich will direct the much anticipated film. The other selling point of the film will be newcomer and super model Ruhee who will play a significant character in the movie.
The muharat (official announcement) of the movie was held on October 29 at the Seven Hill restaurant, where the cast and crew were introduced to the press.
Producer of the film Mahfuz, Ansarul Alam Linkon, Khosru, Ruhee, Telesamad and many media personalities were present at the occasion.
Mahfuz Ahmed won the National Film Award for his role in the movie “Srabon Megher Din,” directed by noted litterateur Humayun Ahmed. He also directed the TV plays, “Choita Pagol” and “Tomar Doyaye Bhalo Ashi Maa,” that earned him more popularity. This is the first time Mahfuz is producing a film.
In conversation with Dhaka Tribune, Mahfuz shares: “I have started a production house ‘Playhouse’ along with Animesh, Ansarul Alam Linkon and Khosru. Basically, this film is being produced by our own production house. We believe that we have some duty towards our media and hope with all sincerity that we will give a remarkable film to our industry.”
While talking about his role in the film, he shares: “The audience will see me with a very different getup in the film as I have changed my look for this film. I am playing the character of a person who neither forgets, nor forgives and is vengeful in nature. His wife leaves him and after a while, his son dies in an accident. He loses stability and blames his wife for his situation and sets out to get revenge on his estranged wife. Everything changes when he meets a girl who delves her way into his life and becomes his inspiration for living.”
Recently, Jaya Ahsan’s “Purno Doirgho Prem Kahini,” created a wave of positive response from the audience. She received National Award for her brilliant performance in “Guerrilla,” a movie based on the Liberation War.
“We are all on the same boat when it comes to making a good film for our audience. I have worked in many productions directed by Animesh Aich. Mahfuz Ahmed is one of my favourite co-actors. On the other hand, the story and script of the film is mind blowing. I like it and I hope audience will accept it nicely,” said Jaya Ahsan.
While talking about the film with the Dhaka Tribune, director Animesh Aich shares: “Shooting of the film will begin from November 1. It’s a psycho thriller where the protagonist of the film Mahfuz Ahmed, will lose his mental stability at one point in the movie.”
