Mahfuz-Mili in Humayun Ahmed’s Ekjon Mayaboti04 March 2014
When Humayun Ahmed was alive proprietor of book publication house, Annyo Prokash Mazharul Islam showed Humayun the script of his one of the most popular novels Ekjon Mayaboti.

Now Humayun Ahmed is not alive. But Mazharul Islam strongly believes that if he (Humayun) would alive he might like the script of Ekjon Mayaboti.
With the script written by Arun Chowdhury, Mazharul Islam has started to make 52-episode drama serial titled Ekjon Mayaboti on Monday.

Mahfuz is acting in role of ‘Monjur,’ while Mili is performing in role of ‘Jahanara’ in the serial.
While talking about the serial Mahfuz Ahmed told this correspondent, “Basically main story of the serial is based on Humayun Sir’s story and Mazharul Islam is giving direction of Ekjon Mayaboti.

But I shall try my level best to express my role in the serial. I am grateful to Mazhar bhai to give me the opportunity to perform in Ekjon Mayaboti.”
