Of late Emon has occupied a strong position in the film industry, surpassing the popularity of many of his contemporaries. He is a favorite choice among directors, with many ongoing silver screen features on his plate.
In a month, Emon has penned contracts for six new movies, which include two new films by Chashi Nazrul Islam: âBhul Jodi Hoyâ and âKothae Achho Kemon Achhoâ. Shooting has already begun for one of these films.
The other four films are Selim Rezaâs âNa Bola Bhalobashaâ, Raju Ahmedâs âTobuo Tumi Amarâ, Rafik Shikdarâs âPadma Parer Parbotiâ and Swapan Ahmedâs âKuashaâ.
On this latest flurry of signing for films, Emon says, âThis is without doubt very good news for me. Itâs also very positive for my career. All the movies have unique stories to tell and Iâll play diverse characters. I will try to put in my best efforts and use my talent to try and reach out to the audience.â
Earlier, Emon was a frequent face on TV plays, but he has stopped performing for TV. However he continues his modelling work.
Speaking on this shift from TV, Emon says âWhen I was very occupied with my television work I decided to go for a change and act in films. Eventually, I decided that I would only do films. Now, I intend to make movies and shine in this field.â
Apart from the six new projects, Emon has recently done shooting for the films âPadmo Patar Jolâ, âPorobashiniâ and âPayraâ. Bidya Sinha Meem, Lux superstar Mehzabien and Dipali will be acting opposite Emon respectively in the films.
Recently he has also shot for the new film âTumi Shondhar Meghmalaâ. Several of his new films are also awaiting release, among them are: âPutro Ekhon Poishawalaâ, âEi Toh Bhalobashaâ, âObujh Bhalobashaâ and âJonakir Aloâ.
Emon expressed his optimism about the success of these films, adding that the audience will enjoy different facets of him in the films.
Emon made his film debut in 2009, with the movie âEk Buk Bhalobashaâ, directed by Ispahani Arif Jahan. So far, 14 of his films have been released, many of which were both commercial and critical successes. The most popular release so far has been âLal Tipâ. Emon says, ââLal Tipâ brought me recognition among audiences from different strata. The movie was also praised abroad. This is a positive sign for the countryâs film industry, as well as myself.â
âGohine Shobdoâ is another hit featuring Emon. The movie, which the actor terms as a âmajor turning pointâ in his career also picked up several awards on the international stage.
Asked what his current goals are, Emon answers, âI have no other dreams but films. I would be happy if our film industry continue to develop.â
