Cultural Correspondent

Khalilullah KhanKhalilullah Khan

Seasoned actor Khalilullah Khan Khalil has been honoured with lifetime award in recognition of his long acting career of over five decades in National Film Award 2012, according to the gazette issued by the information ministry on February 7.
Khalil earlier won the National Film Award in the anti-hero category in 1976 for his role in Gunda directed by the late filmmaker Alamgir Kumkum. 
‘Awards are always inspiring but it’s the love of the people which is the greatest asset in the life of an artiste,’ said the ailing actor Khalil, who just recovered from a critical condition.
‘I was nearly dead only a few days ago.  It’s the love and prayer of the people that saved my life,’ said Khalil, who turned 80 on February 1.
‘I still hope to get back to media once more. I am feeling quite better now and I hope someday I will be able to perform again,’ Khalil told New Age.   
Khalil earned recognition as a powerful actor both on the big and small screen. He has been acting for the last 50 years with his first film Sonar Kajal in 1961, which was jointly directed by Kalim Sharafi and Zahir Raihan, and also acted by Sumita Devi and Sultana Zaman. He started his career as a theatre artiste. He acted in many notable films and television plays. He was president of Bangladesh Chalachitra Samity.
In his long and eventful career as an actor, Khalil has acted in around 800 films. He also acted in Urdu films debuting with Preet Na Jane Reet Urdu in 1963. Khalil was equally acclaimed for his roles as villain.
The great actor made his debut as a villain with SM Parvez’s Begana in 1966. His other films include Sangam, Sonar Kajal, Bhai Bhai, Pagla Raja, Fakir Majnu, Matir Phool, Nader Chad and Bini Shutar Mala.
However, television serial Sangsaptak earned him huge popularity. The role of Miyar Beta in the serial won him a huge recognition.
