Entertainment Report :
The Bangladesh Film Artistes’ Association’s election for the 2024-2026 term unfolded
yesterday (Friday) amidst subdued
participation from the celebrity
fraternity, leaving many disheartened.
Held at the Bangladesh Film Development Corporation (BFDC), the polling commenced at 9:00am and concluded at 5:00pm, witnessing a tepid turnout throughout the day.
Notably absent from the polling booths were several prominent figures of the Bangladeshi film industry.
Shakib Khan, currently engaged in filming in India, and Moushumi, reportedly in the United States, were amongst the notable absentees.
Similarly, Ferdous was absent as he is currently in Canada.
Many other luminary artistes were not seen at the voting spot until afternoon.
This year’s election saw heightened security measures with a significant presence of law enforcement personnel overseeing the proceedings.
Actor Rubel, a veteran of Film Artistes’ Association’s elections, expressed his disappointment at the subdued atmosphere.
He said, “There could be disagreements amongst us regarding the election. However, I believe it’s just a matter of a week. After that, we’re all brothers again.”
He reflected on the friendship often shared amongst film industry peers post-election.
