Popular Tollywood actor Srabanti will also star alongside Shanto in a central role in this upcoming film
Popular Indian actor Karenjit Kaur Vohra, who is commonly known by her stage name Sunny Leone, has recently completed shooting an item song in Mumbai for the Bangladeshi film titled Bikkhobh. The film, written by Delowar Hossain Dil and directed by Shamim Ahamed Roni, is based on the road-safety protests which took place all over the country last year.
Images of Sunny Leone shooting with the film’s lead cast, newcomer Shanto Khan recently surfaced on social media platforms. Another popular Indian actor Srabanti will also star alongside Shanto in a central role in this upcoming film.
Shapla Media, the film’s production company, has also released the first poster of the film which created a lot of social media buzz among Bangladeshi netizens.
The first poster features the newcomer Shanto with the slogan “I am not a road, I am a student. Stop road accidents.” Some netizens have even criticized the slogan for not making any sense.
The film’s director Roni recently confirmed with the press that the shooting of the item song featuring Leone was shot in Mumbai between September 9 to 11. He also said that Shanto is a promising young newcomer in the country’s film industry, and they are trying to get the best performance out of him.
Roni also confirmed that popular Tollywood actor Srabanti Chatterjee is currently in Dhaka, and is shooting alongside Shanto.
Shamim Ahmed Roni also informed that each year hundreds of young students lose their lives in road accidents, and this film will try to discuss this issue.
This will be the first Bangladeshi film ever to feature the former adult film star. The project is being produced by Selim Khan, owner of the film’s production company Story Splash Production, which is a sister concern of Shapla Media.
Leone had previously confirmed her debut in the Bangladeshi film through a video message posted on social media platforms back in August.
Another legendary Dhallywood actor Ilias Kanchan and other members of his road safety organization, Nirapad Sharak Chai, gave their vocal support to the student protest demanding safer roads back in August last year.
