Shakib Khan: No 1

Cultural Correspondent

Shakib KhanShakib Khan

The Dhallywood superstar Shakib Khan has been named the best actor in the National Film Award 2012 for his acting in Shahin Sumon’s Khodar Porey Ma, according to the gazette notification issued by the information ministry on Thursday.
Thanks to Shakib’s spontaneous acting, the actor got the award acting in a film featuring typical storyline: a devoted son’s sacrifice to satisfy his mother.  Seasoned actress Babita played the character of the mother in films.
This is for the second time that the Dhallywood heartthrob won the National Film Award.
In 2010, Shakib Khan won the award for his acting in the film Bhalobashlei Ghar Badha Jay Na.
‘Winning the national award is always exciting and encouraging since the award is the recognition of good works.  I want to dedicate the award to hundreds of fans without whose ardent love and support I could not have achieved the success,’ Shakib Khan told New Age.
‘The national level recognition will make me more responsible and committed to my work and the film industry. I’ve already
taken an initiative to produce an international standard film and to promote it globally,’ said Shakib Khan said.
Shakib Khan will play the lead role in the big-budget film Hero: The Super Star, which will be produced by his production house SK Films.
Directed by Badiul Alam Khokhon, the film will also star two popular Dhallywood actors Bobby and Apu Biswas, who perform opposite to Shakib in most of the commercial films these days.
‘The shooting of the film will begin on the Valentine’s Day. We will shoot the film in different locations in Singapore, UK and Malaysia targeting the Bangladeshi expatriates living in those countries,’ Shakib Khan said.
Shakib Khan further said that he was busy acting in Wazed Ali Sumon’s action film Hitman.       
Masud Rana emerged in Dhallywood as Shakib Khan through the film Sobai To Shukhi Hote Chay, directed by Rafiqul Islam, which was released in 2000. 
His first film, however, was Ananto Bhalobasha, which was released later. According to Shakib Khan his performance in the film Amar Swapno Tumi, released in 2005, was the turning point of his career.
Since then Shakib Khan has starred in box office films such as Chachchu, Koti Takar Kabin, Dadima, Pitar Ason, Mon-e Pran-e Achho Tumi, Devdas, Tumi Swapno Tumi Shadhona, Mone Boro Kashto, Shaheb Name Golam, Jaan Amar Jaan, Balbo Katha Bashor Ghore, Preme Porechhi.
