Senior actor ATM Shamsuzzaman has appeared on Shahriar Nazim Joy’s popular celebrity roasting show “Sense of Humor” to defend the program, after Dhallywood actor and producer Omar Sani had criticized it for being disrespectful.
ATM Shamsuzzaman commented that Sani “didn’t even understand the meaning of the show.” Joy shared the video response on Youtube.
On December 4, Omar Sani criticized Shahriar Nazim Joy’s comedy show in a Facebook status. He had said that Joy should “learn to respect his seniors as an artist.”
Subsequently, in a video on his YouTube channel, Joy responded to Sani’s criticism by asking the latter to come on the show so the two could discuss the matter.
On December 10, Sani posted further criticism of Joy’s antics on “Sense of Humour” in the form of five questions on Facebook.
The five questions were:
"1.He (Joy) calls Moushumi (Sani’s wife and a famous Dhallywood actor) his sister. But did he show any respect to his sister on his show? How could he say that ‘if Omar Sani didn’t marry you, I would have’? What sort of etiquette is that?
2.He asked actor Shabnoor why her child’s face is similar to Riaz’s (another Dhallywood actor)? Isn’t that indecency?
3.He asked Mahiya Mahi, despite having a husband, why is she currently living together with film producer Jaaz (Abdul Aziz)? Does ‘Sense of Humor’ mean bringing up personal matters on a TV sshow?
4.He told, Meher Afroz Shaon, wife of famous author Humayun Ahmed, that he wanted to marry her in the absence of her late husband. What sort of proposition is that? Does a gentleman talk like this in front of the camera?
5.He asked eminent politician, Shamim Osman, if he wants to take Moushumi on a long drive. Where did Moushumi come here from? She is not active in any sort of politics, then why bring her in all this?"
“Sense of Humor” is a popular satire celebrity-roasting show hosted by Joy that airs on ATN Bangla. It regularly features celebrity guests from the Bangladeshi film and television industry.
Previously, the show had created massive buzz by roasting celebrities such as Meher Afroz Shaon, Apu Biswas, Bidya Sinha Mim, Nusrat Fariya and many more.
