Bangladesh Film Directors Association on Saturday declared to boycott popular Dhallywood superstar Shakib Khan for indefinite period for his “derogatory remarks” on directors and actors.
Director General of the association Badiul Alam Khokan came up with the announcement at a press conference at Bangladesh Film Development Corporation (BFDC).
Khokan alleged that Shakib has recently made derogatory remarks insulting the film directors while talking to journalists.
Following this, the association sent a legal notice to Shakib on April 25 and asked all directors to postpone shooting with the actor until the matter comes to an end.
However, the popular Bangla film actor didn’t give any reply to it, forcing the film directors to take the decision, Khokan said while reading out a written statement.
Besides, the association scrapped the membership of director Shamim Ahmed Rony for continuing shooting with Shakib for new movie “Rangbazz”, violating the association’s decision.
Shakib has been hitting media headlines since his wife Dhallywood actress Apu Biswas came in a live television talk-show on April 10 and disclosed that she got married with Shakib in 2008 and the couple has a baby boy too.
