Shahed lands a Tollywood role Bangladeshi actor Shahed Sharif Khan lands a role in a Tollywood film titled Senapati.
The small screen star sets to feature in a Tollywood venture for the first time, which is directed by Arnab Riingo Banerjee.
In the film, Shahed shares screen with Tollywood stars like Riya Sen and Parambrata Chatterjee. The actor already left Dhaka to join the filming while the film went to floor on Thursday.
The film Senapati, a two-part fictional biopic where underworld, intrigue, honour will come alive on screen, has shades of Godfather and Mahabharata weaved into one. However, the story is original and intriguing. The story flows through the cities of Kolkata, London and Bangkok.
About 16 years ago, Shahed first caught wide-attention starring in a drama directed by Arnab Riingo Banerjee and now this project after 16 years apart proves that the director still sees Shahed in a position to play a vital role in his big screen venture.
