Gazi Abdun Noor wants to take the challenge of all kinds of characters
Bagerhat’s Gazi Abdun Noor first came into the limelight by acting in the Kolkata serial ‘Rani Rasmani’. His role of Rajchandra also gained popularity in Bangladesh. But this actor’s dream was to get the love of the audience by acting in his own country. Gazi Abdun Noor’s Dhallywood journey began in 2021 with Nargis Akhtar’s ‘Jaivati Kanyaar Man’. Due to Corona, the movie could not generate much discussion. Gazi Abdun Noor’s ‘Asambhab’ was released on November 3. Noor’s performance in this movie directed by Aruna Biswas has been appreciated. Gazi Abdun Noor said, ‘It was impossible to hope that the movie will be loved by the audience. There were many opportunities to act in this movie. But the movie could not reach many viewers due to political unrest. But whoever saw it, appreciated it. The audience has an expectation about me. I will try to hold it.’
Gazi Abdun Noor has two movies waiting for release. One is ‘From Bangladesh’ by Shahnewaz Kakali, the other is ‘Shravan Jotsnay’ by Abdus Samad Khokon. Towards the end is the shooting of Saroar Tamiz Uddin’s movie ‘Bhasa Paayi Momtaz’. Apart from this, another movie is being talked about. Talking about future plans, Gazi Abdun Noor said, ‘I want to act in different types of characters, not the same type of character. As an actor, I want to take on the challenge of all kinds of roles. And I hope that the movies that will be released in the future, they should reach the audience smoothly.’
