As a commemoration of the Independence Day, “Aj Purobir Din” will air on NTV tonight at 9:00pm.
Aparna Ghosh star in the titular role of Purobi, who is a “Birangana” (a title for women raped by Pakistani forces during the Liberation War). After her ordeal during the war, she realizes the society won’t accept her as before. She leaves the country and returns after 45 years, only to be haunted by her past once again.
Omer Aiaz Ony told Showtime, he plays the role of Purobi’s love interest. They fall in love during the war when they were students. Before leaving the country, the two have a misunderstanding. After Purobi returns in 2016, she publishes some wrong and embarrassing details of their relationship. Ony’s character, now a college teacher, must find her and settle old accounts.
“Playing the same role in two timelines was particularly challenging and interesting,” Ony said.
Written by prominent writer Masum Reza, the drama is directed by Mahmud Didar.
