21 September 2015 Among the foremost actors on the small screen, Shahriar Nazim Joy is also an occasional film actor who has extended his talents to the direction of TV plays. He's gone even a step further now with his debut film, set to hit the silver screens this Eid. In a recent conversation with The Daily Star, Joy spoke about his new avatar as film director. Excerpts:

How do you feel about the release of your debut film, “Prarthona”?

Joy: Over a long innings, I have directed as many as 50 TV plays and acted in four movies. My venture into film direction is an outcome of a certain confidence that I could do the job well. It's a great feeling to be finally releasing “Prarthona” this Eid.

Tell us about its plot?

Joy: “Prarthona” is a film based on our life. Its storyline is not copied from Tamil or Hindi movies. The rest, you'll have to find out at the theatre.

Why should people go to theatres to watch the film?

Joy: There are a number of reasons. I have a feeling audiences will go to the theatre a second time around after watching the film, because of its plot and some great acting. Apart from that, there are some memorable songs.


You are also acting in the movie; was it very challenging?

Joy: It's a hard job. I also scripted the film. Everything is possible if you are dedicated to your profession.

When did you plan to make films?

Joy: I'm a media personality. I set off as a theatre artiste. While directing TV plays, I dreamt of making films one day and finally the dream has come true.

What's the biggest hindrance in directing for TV?

Joy: Low budgets. We have many talented TV directors but because of tight budgets, we can't deliver the best.

What was your first work in films?

Joy: The film “Jiboner Golpo”, with Shabnur.
