The documentary film on the life of Bangabandhu in Kolkata will be completed by June this year. Renowned filmmaker Goutom Ghosh said in Dhaka on Friday that the film script will follow the unfinished autobiography of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman and the books on this topic written by Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina.
Goutom Ghosh is visiting Bangladesh to complete the shooting for the 30-minute long documentary film ‘Kolkatae Bangabandhu’. He will undertake shooting for the documentary film for a week at various locations in Dhaka and Tungipara. He said Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has also consented to talk on camera for the documentary film.
Speaking to the media at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MoFA) in Dhaka Goutom Ghosh said that there is a lack of audio-visual representation of the life of Bangabandhu when he was a student in Kolkata during 1945-46.
The film is being made under the joint collaboration of the Bangladesh Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Friends of Bangladesh, India Chapter. The MoU for the making of the documentary film was signed in Kolkata on March 19 this year.
Foreign Minister Dr A K Abdul Momen said that Kolkata days of Bangabandhu are important as he received hands-on training on politics during this period.
Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman was a student at the Islamia college, later renamed Maulana Azad College, in Kolkata during 1945-46. He was elected General Secretary of the Islamia College Students Union during that period.
