Few names missed

I have read the letter under caption 'Martial Art in cinema' published in your newspaper on Sunday. The letter, however, missed few more personalities like Sohel Rana,  Jahangir Alam, Alexandar Bo and Misha Swadagar.
Every one knows that it is Sohel Rana who first took the initiative to bring Martial Art in cinema.  Ostad Jahangir Alam alsao made good contribution. But candidly speaking there has been produced no cinema, focusing on Martial Art, in Bangladesh till date. Faces of few black belt holders do not qualify a movie to be Martial Art based.
Whoso wants to produce such a movie should study film making in Hong Kong and Mainland China.  I think there can be an exciting movie with Ilyas Cobra, Dani Sidak, Siraj Panna, Kabir Khan, Sancho Panja, Chinese, Misha Sawdagar, Rubel, Sohel Rana, Chita, Alexander Bo, Don and those who are experts in Martial Art as actors.
May we request those who have reputation as successful directors.
