“Shahenshah,” starring Dhallywood superstar Shakib Khan, will start rolling from October 19.

In the film the popular Bangladeshi actor will be seen romancing actor Nusrat Faria and newcomer Rodela Jannat. The film is directed by Shamim Ahamed Roni.

“Shahenshah” is produced by Shapla Media. The film’s launching ceremony took place at a five star hotel in Gulshan, Dhaka, on September 5.  The production date was announced at the launch even though multiple pre-announced shoot dates were announced previously.

Producer of the film, Selim Khan, said at the event: “We could not shoot the film due to some technical problems. We are already done with the preproduction of the film. Hopefully, we will start shooting without any other complications from October 19. We want to complete the film as early as possible by working at a stretch.”

Shakib Khan is also part of another upcoming Shapla Media production titled “Ekti Prem Dorkar Manoniyo Sarkar.” This film is directed by Shamim Ahamed Roni. Actor Shabnom Bubly and another newcomer, Shuchismita Mridula, are paired alongside Shakib, the superstar of Bangladeshi films.

Mridula considers “Ekti Prem Dorkar Manoniyo Sarkar,” a big turning point of her life, according to a recent press statement. She feels it is sheer luck she will be playing one of the leads opposite Shakib Khan in her debut film. She responded to a casting call posted on Shapla Media’s Facebook page which was looking for a new face for this film. She came out as the top contender of all who applied, and was cast in the project by the production company.  

Shapla Media thinks the name “Ekti Prem Dorkar Manoniyo Sarkar” for this love triangle does not reflect the essence of the film. They are considering “Culprit” as one of the possible name replacements.

“Since Shakib is acting in two of our films, we thinkthe time for shooting and dubbing can be evenly shared by the actor at his convenience,” added Selim in his speech, talking about “Shahenshah.”
