Earlier last year, Jaaz Multimedia announced the news that they will be venturing into a project revolving around the famous fictional character, Masud Rana. Following that, there were no further updates for some time. However, Jaaz Multimedia recently made an announcement on social media stating their progress.
Qazi Anwar Hussain’s character, Masud Rana, is a popular figure in Bangla literature, who was featured in hundreds of the writer’s novels. Though Hussain’s adult spy-thriller series was inspired by James Bond, it went on to morph into a persona of its own.
Bangladeshi-born Hollywood director and actor Asif Akbar will direct the film. He has been a part of the industry since 2006 and made his directorial debut last year. According to the co-producer of the film Jaaz Multimedia, the movie will be made in Hollywood supported by a hefty budget. Filming locations for the project include Bangladesh, Thailand and Mauritius. The film will have a Bangla version as well as an English one, and will be released internationally.
Jaaz Multimedia further informed that many big names from the film industries of Bangladesh, USA, and India, will be part of the cast and crew of the film. The lead cast’s names are yet to be disclosed by the producers.
