The famed Chorki web series, “Myself Allen Swapan”, has recently broken the highest streaming record of the OTT platform, gathering 10 million minutes of streaming time within just 100 hours of its release. The web series is a spin-off of the Chorki original series, “Syndicate”.
Directed by Shihab Shaheen, the web series is the first spin-off series in Bangladesh and features an antagonist as the main lead.
The series casts Nasir Uddin Khan, Rafiath Rashid Mithila, Sumon Anowar and Abdullah Al Sentu, among others.
Back in 2022, the audience well-received Nasir Uddin Khan’s portrayal of the character Allen Swapan. However, the actor never thought that the spin-off series highlighting Allen Swapan’s journey would have such a tremendous response.
“Allen Swapan and Nasir Uddin Khan aren’t similar in reality, yet it’s one of my favourite characters that I have portrayed,” shared Nasir Uddin. “However, I never thought the audience would love this character so much. I am getting countless letters, calls and posts showering praises on Allen Swapan. As an actor, I cannot express my joy in words.”
Shayla is Allen Swapon’s worst nightmare, but why?
The crime-thriller series also featured the noted actor Rafiath Rashid Mithila as Shayla.
Upon hearing the news that the series broke Chorki’s records, the actor shared, “My role in the series was quite interesting. But I didn’t expect the audience to watch ‘Myself Allen Swapan’ so much in such a short time. This was only possible because of our team effort.”
Director of the spin-off, Shihab Shaheen, added, “Our works are only truly complete and fulfilled when the audience likes them. I did not think the audience would love the character so much while making ‘Syndicate’.”
“Much of this credit goes to Nasir,” added the director. “He breathed life into the character, adding another degree of depth to it.”
