Sheikh Arif Bulbon :
Many people have plans for the English New Year. They plan
to celebrate the day in different ways. This special report was
prepared by talking to some
people in the world of drama,
cinema and music.
“Happy English New Year to everyone. Alhamdulillah the year 2023 was pretty good for me overall. I have had a good time in my personal and professional life. I hope the New Year 2024 will be good Inshallah. I have no special ambitions for the first day of the year. The new English year has come in our life according to the rules of life. In this way, the rules of life will come to 2025, 2026 or the following years. Some will stay for years, some will leave – this is the rule. I just pray that Allah keeps everyone well and healthy.”
Dilshad Nahar Kona:
“My journey of 2023 ended yesterday with a stage show in Khulna. Alhamdulillah, I spent a colourful year. I hope that the year 2024 will be more colourful, happy and successful. I deliberately left a few backlogs on January 1. Happy New English Year to everyone. Today I will give my voice to one film song and two modern songs. I hope to spend the rest of the time with my family. May everyone have a good and beautiful New Year – this is everyone’s hope.”
Bidya Sinha Mim:
“Some time ago, I came to Dubai with my husband. I spent the last time of 2023 in Dubai. I will celebrate here at the beginning of the year. And since it is our wedding anniversary on January 4, we are going to celebrate the wedding anniversary here as usual. Everyone pray for us that we always stay healthy and well. And happy New Year to everyone.”
Chanchal Chowdhury:
“The beginning of last year was very sad for me because I lost my father on December 27 of 2022. So, it took me some time to get everything set properly. In any case, the last year has been quite good all in all. However, I missed my father every step of the way. And I will spend today with my wife and children in Kolkata. I will back tomorrow. I am supposed to sit down with a director named Ashrafuzzaman on the script of a new movie. I have many more plans. Hope everyone has a good new English year.”
Muhin Khan:
“Yesterday was the last day of the year. That day was also spent in my stage show. Alhamdulillah. And today is also starting with stage show. On the first day of the year, three of my songs are going to be released on three YouTube channels.”
“The three songs are titled: ‘Moner Manush Nai’, ‘Achho Kothai’ and ‘Roj Bikel’. I have great expectations about the three songs. I have released three songs on the first day of the New Year. So, a different kind of love is really working inside. Happy English New Year to everyone.”
