Hotline Commando will air on RTV from September

Tanjim Ahmad Sohel Taj, ex- state minister for Home Affairs and son of Bangladesh's first Prime Minister Tajuddin Ahmad, is going to appear on RTV with his lifestyle reality show Hotline Commando from September.

Five months ago, Sohel started posting video teasers on social media saying something new is coming, which created speculation among general people and also in the political arena. However, he later revealed that this is apolitical. 

Speaking at a press conference in Dhaka, in association with RTV, Mitsubishi Motors and Suzuki Motorbike, Sohel said that to build a "golden Bangla," this country needs golden people.  

“I have been thinking about physical and mental health and lifestyle habits for a long time," he said, adding "Hotline Commando is born from out of that.”

The Hotline Commando team will knock on the doors of people from different classes and professions at various regions across the country to know about their lifestyle, habits, health problems, diet, work environment and other related issues.

Experts will then help suggest lifestyle hacks to these people.

Sohel Taj further said: "If this program raises awareness among the general people and changes their way of life, then our purpose will be successful.”

In a presentation, he showed that in Bangladesh, 60% people die due to non-communicable diseases, which are preventable. “It is possible to get rid of these diseases only by changing lifestyle habits," Sohel added.

"I am indebted to the citizens of Bangladesh and I want to pay them back in my own style,” he said.

When a society is well built and people are prepared then there will be positive changes everywhere, he added. 

Asked if he wanted to form a platform for social awareness campaigns, he responded that along with the TV show, Sohel and his team will use social media for activism—including awareness campaigns at schools, colleges and universities.

Sohel, who has taken a break from politics, was the state minister during Awami League’s 2009-2013 tenure and resigned within six months.
