Popular couple Simon Sadiq and Mahia Mahi starrer ‘Live’ was released in 25 theaters across the country including Dhaka on Friday. The movie is produced by Shapla Media.

Simon-Mahir’s ‘Live’ is based on a true story. Actors Adar Azad, Khairul Bashar, Shiva Shanu, Amin Sarkar and Saberi Alam have also acted in various roles. The movie was released without much publicity.
In the past Shapla Media owned by Salim Khan has been promoting the movie with much fanfare. However, it was not seen in the case of ‘Live’. Simon and Mahi expressed their regret at the ‘meet the press’ event organized at a restaurant in Moghbazar in the capital on Wednesday. However, the two stars did not open up about why the movie was not promoted that way.
But there are rumours, Salim Khan, the leader of Shapla Media, the production company of this movie, has got into trouble. The Anti-Corruption Commission has filed a case against him for illegally earning thousands of crores of rupees. ACC is also investigating the assets of Salim’s son Shanta Khan. So Shapla Media released this movie without much noise.
