 Trishal is the starting point of 'Biography of Nazrul'

The shooting phase for the biography film on national poet Kazi Nazrul Islam, titled 'Biography of Nazrul,' has begun.

The director of the docudrama Ferdous Khan officially started production of the film at a launch event in Trishal, Mymensingh, by cutting a cake and operating a camera.

The program was held at the Nazrul Center of Nampara,Trishal. Former Executive Director of Nazrul Institute, Ikram Uddin Ahmed, and family members of Bichutia Bepari, the foster family of Kazi Nazrul Islam, were present among many others.

When asked the reason for starting the shoot from Trishal the director said: "Trishal was the first turning point of Nazrul's life. Police officer Rafiqulla of Simla village took ‘Dukhu Miah’ away from the Asansol bakery, and admitted him in the Darirampur School of Trishal. The national poet began to study again. If this had not happen in Nazrul's life it could have been different! So, considering the importance of this event, I chose Trishal as the starting point of 'Biography of Nazrul.’After that we will start shooting at Asansol."

Conversations with teachers of National Poet Kazi Nazrul Islam University, Nazrul researchers, Shimla's Darogabari, and Nampara Bichtuti Bepari family members were recorded during the event.

Besides writing stories and novels for the last two decades, producer and director Ferdous Khan is working on biographies of Nazrul and other talented people of this region.
