Actor, director and producer Ananta Jalil has left for Saudi Arabia to perform Umrah.
In a video shared on his official Facebook page on Sunday afternoon, he said will be leaving Dhaka later in the day.
The businessman-turned-actor also said he will spend three days in Madina first and then go to Mecca.
Urging his friends and fans to pray for his successful pilgrimage, he said: “I will pray to Allah for everyone and our country.”
“I urge all to lead an honest life, say the prayers five times a day and do good work for the country,” added Ananta, who is also known as an philanthropist, at the end of the video.
Ananta, who was awarded CIP (Commercially Important Person) title multiple times, had shared the video on Facebook as a sponsored post which gained more than 60,000 views within the first five hours.
