Famous TV director Masud Hasan Ujjal has revealed the names of two lead casts for his recently announced debut silver screen project, titled, “Unoponchash Batash.”
Sharlin Farzana and Imtiaz Barshon, two newbies in the industry, will be seen through Ujjal's debut project.
Since the announcement, Ujjal remained silent about the lead casts for his anticipated project. Earlier, the director said he would reveal the names on the first day of the new year.
“I have selected two budding artists for my silver screen debut. Shooting is about to be finished. I am at my comfort zone,” Ujjal said.
But why did he take the risk of including newbies? According to the director, the story of the film requires them.
“The story of the film is not parallel to the typical films that we know of. An early assumption of the storyline is nearly impossible. We had to think a lot before selecting the perfect casts for the lead characters of the film, Ayon and Nira,” he said.
He added: “The expression of their laugh, cry and even love was needed to be unknown to the audience. So, we had to step away from the big names at the first place. Keeping all the requirements of the story in mind and after going through a rigorous procedure, we finally landed with Sharlin and Barshon for the roles.”
The director also said both of the actors went through a three months long drill in front of the camera to delve into their assigned roles.
The unique aspect of this film according to its director is, “Unoponchash Batash will introduce the audience a new dimension of our known world that exists within the everyday reality.”
Ujjal is hoping to release the film on Pohela Boishakh this year.
The film is being produced by Asif Hanif under Ujjal’s own label, Red October. The Executive Producer of the film is Syeda Shaon.
