Renowned actor Aly Zaker will perform in three interesting roles of aged persons in three special TV plays to be aired in different private channels during the Eid special programmes.
In Habib Masud’s drama Taar Shishu Bandhura, Zaker has played the role of a character of an aged man who passes his loneliness playing with children and does many silly things what he would never do in his childhood.
He does almost similar type of role featuring the generation gap and problems with the elderly people in family life in Upahar, directed by Romya Khan.
In Chayanika Chowdhury’s Eid drama Akash Jora Megh, he has played the role of a school teacher, who calls his celebrity students at his house and requests them to take classes twice in a month in his school.
‘I really enjoyed acting in these plays having different types of storylines. Actually all of these characters are very interesting and challenging,’ Zaker told New Age.
In fact, Aly Zaker is very selective these days. He prefers for acting in the plays those match with his age, personality, and of course a bit different from the stereotypical nature of entertainment offered by the TV plays.
‘I do very selective works for TV plays. Only when I like the character and storyline, I accept the offer,’ said Zaker.
He further informed that he was also busy with his job of an anchor in the talk show called Aloy Bhuban Bhora, which is aired on Channel-i.
‘The talk show has attracted huge number of young viewers after running a few episodes. Since then, we invite a prominent aged person and a young person as the guests of the talk show to discuss on various issues,’ said Zaker.
Aly Zaker is also equally busy with theatre activities. Besides giving time for the ongoing productions of Nagorik Natyasampradaya, Zaker is adapting Tagore’s popular dance drama Chandalika having the title Je Manobo Tumi. He will also direct the play.
About the adaptation process, Zaker told New Age that the storyline and diction of the original drama will remain the same.
