Popular writer and film director Humayun Ahmed announced that he would not direct any more films after making his latest movie titled âGhetu Putra Komolaâ.
âGhetu Putra Komolaâ would be his last movie, Ahmed claimed at a press conference organised on the occasion of the maharat (announcement programme of making a new film) at Channel i office on Saturday.
About the reason behind taking such a decision, Ahmed blamed his becoming increasingly impatient and intolerant.
âI cannot make a good film now only because of my intolerance,â he said, adding that he was not finding as much interest in directing films as he used to get in the past.
However, he also said that he might change his mind if someone, very close to him preferably his wife, compelled him to make films.
Finance minister, Abul Maal Abdul Muhith, education secretary Kamal Abdul Naser Chowdhury, and Impress Telefilm Limited director general Faridur Reza Sagar, among others, spoke at the programme.
On his upcoming movie âGhetu Putra Komolaâ, Ahmed said that the film deals with a group of traditional âGhetu Gaanâ performers. In traditional Ghetu Gaan performances,
adolescent boys dressed as girls entertain upper class men singing and
presenting salacious dances.
Young actor Mamun will play the titular Kamola in the movie. Tareque Anam Khan, Jayanto Chattopadhyay, Munmun Ahmed and Shamima Naznin will play leading roles.
Choreography of a ghetu song was presented by Mamun and others at the programme.
The shooting of âGhetu Putra Komolaâ will begin tomorrow in haor areas of Habiganj district.
