I’m acting in diverse roles
Azizul Hakim tells New AgeCultural Correspondent
Viewers will see Azizul Hakim in diverse characters in this Eid, said the seasoned actor who emerged as a romantic hero in the late 1980s.
The actor expresses his satisfaction in his performances in Eid special teleplays such as Sangri La, Charupath and The Mama Great Centre, which will be aired in different channels.
‘In Sangri La, I’m playing the character of a typical Kolkata based middle class service holder. I believe the audience will love me in the role, at least I’m satisfied with my performance in the play which is written and directed respectively by Tauqir Ahmed and Shahiduzzaman Selim,’ said Hakim.
‘I’ve also enjoyed acting in the role of Amal in Charupath, an adaptation from Tagore’s short story Nashto Neer. Tuhin Abanta has directed the play. Viewers will also enjoy my performance in The Mama Great Centre,’ said Hakim adding that he also acted in several other good teleplays to be aired on different channels during the Eid festival.
Hakim feared whether people will watch them for the prolonged commercials aired on the channels during Eid festivals. ‘Too many commercials aired on the channels interrupt the interest of the audience. TV channels, on the other hand, need to air the commercials for business purposes. So, it is a complicated problem, which needs to be resolved,’ Hakim said.
A professional small screen actor Hakim further said that he was busy acting in many drama serials. ‘I’m playing lead roles in drama serials such as Kabuliyatnama, Probasey Parobasey, Scandal, Eito Jiban, Golper Porey and Thanar Naam Shonir Akhara. All these drama serials deal with real life stories in realistic manner,’ Hakim told New Age.
‘In fact, most of the serials produced in the country depict people, their life and society. It will not be a fair judgment if anybody accuses our teleplays labeling those monotonous and substandard. Definitely, these plays have huge market otherwise there is no logic behind producing so many plays for around 25 channels,’ he added.
Hakim also does not find any logic why people are watching Indian serials instead. ‘Indian makers create fantasies, which can give excitement for a while. But, this fascination will not last for long,’ observed Hakim.
Hakim believes that the young generation artistes are talented and competent enough to take the small screen industry ahead despite so many obstacles. ‘But, they must be dedicated and sincere to achieve the target,’ he said.
Azizul Hakim is also continuing with his engagement in theatre, which the actor considers his school in acting. A member of Aranyak Natya Dal, Hakim performs regularly in Iblish.
