The film, Adrishhya Shatru, is an urban action thriller, the story of which has been developed and scripted by the two brothers with guidance from Sohel Rana.
 ‘I and Akib, have directed a number of short films, one of them has even been aired on private TV channel Channel-i. But, this is our first venture into directing a full length feature film,’ Mashrur Parvez informed in an interview with New Age.
‘I am very excited and passionate about filmmaking. I hope to live up to my uncle’s expectations,’ chirped Akib Parvez, who did courses on filmmaking in Malaysia, told New Age.
So far Zayed Khan, Priya Aman, Sucharita, Ahmed Sharif and Sohel Rana have been selected as the cast for the film. Shooting for the film will begin on the first week of June, and the film is expected to be released by this year.
‘Both Mashrur and Akib are keen in directing films. I have given them a chance to begin, and, obviously, I wish them success,’ Sohel Rana stated.
