Jaya and Sabnam are touring Chittagong and they visited Almas hall at 12pm
The promotion of “Debi” continues to shock people, as Jaya Ahsan and Sabnam Faria were seen selling film tickets at Chittagong’s Almas hall.
After the release of “Debi” on October 19, the film teams have been travelling outside of Dhaka to visit theatres where the film is being screened. As part of that effort, Jaya and Sabnam are touring Chittagong and they visited Almas hall at 12pm.
The actors spent a few moments with filmgoers outside the hall, after which they made their way straight to the ticket counter. They sat in place of the ticket salesmen and soon, people were astonished to find the stars behind the ticket-window.
Jaya said she sold tickets for close to 30 minutes.
Jaya told reporters, “We did not just want to do the usual film promotion that everyone is accustomed to. Our film is not just a common film. We have always wanted to surprise our fans and entertain them with some humour. At the same time we also wanted to completely fit in to different contexts.
“So we tried something different when we came to visit theatres in Chittagong. We enjoyed surprising people who came to buy tickets and we learned how to sell film tickets.”
Jaya said her costar Sabnam Faria came from her hospital bed to Chittagong, which was a big thing for the “Debi” team. Jaya said, “We must all have such dedication. Only then go we can forward in harmony.”
Public Relations Advisor to “Debi,” Rumman Rashid Khan, told the media that the film team would remain in Chittagong for another day, to do all kinds of promotion for the film.
“Debi” was adapted by Anam Biswas for the silver screen from a Humayun Ahmed novel of the same name . The film was produced by Jaya Ahsan with a government grant support . Aside from Jaya and Sabnam, the film also stars Chanchal Chowdhury, Animesh Aich, Iresh Zaker, and many others.
The movie is being distributed by Jaaz Multimedia, and is being screened at 35 theatres in Bangladesh.
