Ananta Jalil, who had been sporting a beard for the last seven years, has recently changed his look for 'Netri- The Leader'
Ananta Jalil stepped into the film industry in 2010 with Iftakar Chowdhury's hit film 'Khoj- The Search,' which turned the actor into an instant household name as well as an internet meme.
After ten years, the duo will be reuniting on their next film titled Netri- The Leader.
The actor has been sporting a beard for the last seven years. But Jalil has recently changed his look for the upcoming film in which he is set to play a body guard and star opposite Afiea Nusrat Barsha.
Starring Ananta and Barsha in lead roles, Netri- The Leader is a Bangladesh-Turkey co-production.
During the Maharat of Iftakar's latest film Mukti, held on December 7, 2020, Jalil revealed further details about their reunion in the new political thriller.
"Barsha and I began our career as actors with Iftakar bhai's film. 10 years have passed and misunderstandings between us have been a well-publicized part of these years. But we have resolved those issues and decided to collaborate one more time," the actor said at the ceremony.
Ananta disclosed that the casting of the film is still underway, and he had already visited Turkey to make plans.
On the other hand, the actor's latest film Din- The Day, a Bangladesh - Iran co-production, will hit the theatres on Eid-ul-Azha.
On December 2, Jalil released the song teaser from his upcoming film on Facebook to mixed reactions. His new look also divided fans with some praising him for his commitment to new projects.
