Ilias Kanchan enraged over rumours
Rumours have been making rounds that famous film actor Ilias Kanchan is expecting a nomination from a political party to run in the next national elections. The news even made it to the headlines of some local media outlets. But it appears that a rumour is all that it is, and now Ilias Kanachan is furious about it. The actor, who is also the founder of Nirapad Sharak Chai Andolon, has sent a statement to the press on Thursday in this regard. “There’s no base for the news saying that I am expecting a nomination from BNP. This is just false, imaginary and baseless. I think, publication of this news is a heinous crime intended against me,” the statement reads. Kanchan also stated that there’s no possibility of him taking part in the upcoming elections and he is considering legal actions to remove all confusions regarding the matter. “I’ve no relationship whatsoever with BNP. They’ve never contacted me,” he added. Despite his efforts to secure safe roads for the masses, the National Film Award winner artist has no political ambitions. “I am a man of the road and I want to stay that way. I’ve dedicated my life to save the people of the country from the dire consequences of road accidents. I’ve no political ambitions and never expressed any desire to take part in the elections to anybody,” said Kanchan, whose first wife Jahanara Kanchan died in a road accident on October 22, 1993. Kanchan then established a social movement “Nirapad Sharak Chai” (We Demand Safe Roads). The Government of Bangladesh later declared October 22 as National Road Safety Day. According to Kanchan, the rumours could have been spread to hinder the steps he has taken to celebrate the coming National Road Safety Day. Ilias Kanachan debuted his acting career in 1977 through his performances in the film Boshundhora directed by Subhash Dutta. He appeared in more than 300 films during the 1980s and 1990s and has won the Bangladesh National Film Award for Best Actor for his role in the film Porineeta (1986). In 2015, he acted in a children’s film Ghuri, produced by Cinevision Bangladesh which was written and directed by filmmaker Zafar Firoze.
