In the second week of November, Shakib Khan, Bangladesh’s most famous hero, boarded a flight from Dhaka to New York. The objective is to attend the Channel I Music Awards as a guest and receive honours simultaneously. He was scheduled to return later that month but was invited to another event in the first week of December in the United States. He was recognised for his contribution to Bangladeshi cinema at the event.
Shakib announced that he was shooting a film in the United States with his own production company. Since then, more than two months have passed. What day of the week is Shakib Khan celebrated in the United States? When is Dakdabatini scheduled to begin filming in the United States? Director Himel Ashraf provided information. Shakib has been active in the pre-production of that movie for the last month. Every week, director Himel sits with Ashraf and does scripting and dialogue work. All the other castings except the heroine are almost final.
Shakib wants to shoot the movie properly according to all the rules. That is why he is taking time. The director initially wanted to start shooting in February. But the shooting method is not the same in Bangladesh and America.
Shakib said on social media, ‘We have a massive market for our films outside the country. Coming to the United States, I got a better idea of the matter. The business people here are also thinking about Bangladeshi movies. I have had many meetings. A delegation of businesspeople also came from Canada. So meetings have been held more than once. I have to think that the people of Bangladesh can be proud of our movie, so I am preparing to shoot my movie.
Shakib is determined to shoot the film correctly and follow all applicable laws. That is why he is delaying. Initially, the director desired to begin shooting in February. However, the shooting method is not the same in Bangladesh as in the United States. Nevertheless, I believe that the people of Bangladesh will be proud of our film, and thus I am preparing to shoot mine.
Shakib has enjoyed the snowfall in the United States. Shakib said, ‘Winter beauty is different in different countries. I don’t get much out of the house when it snows heavily. Enjoy the beauty of snowfall through the windows. I watch movies on Netflix and Amazon Prime at home. ‘ And in the theatre there?
Shakib Khan said, ‘Sometimes films are seen at the AMC Theater on 64th Street. Ever at Regal Battery Park. There is a well-known bookstore here called Strand. I bought several books from there. I was reading, and I could not find time in Dhaka due to work pressure. I am also spending time here learning. I was reading Andrei Tarkovsky’s Scalping in Time that day. ‘
Shakib is missing Bangladesh very much. He is expected to return home in the first week of April. Before that, he will finish shooting a lot of new pictures. In the meantime, everyone knows that Shakib Khan has applied for a green card in the United States. How far has that process progressed? He said, ‘Processing started before Corona. After 2020, the work has not progressed.
This time after coming to the United States, my lawyer said we need to start working again. Even if he gets a green card, Shakib will not be there permanently. “Many more stars from around the world have done this in the category in which I started the process of getting a green card in the United States,” he said. But they are also working in two countries. So I have a plan to take Bengali cinema forward.
