Career

“Mr. Aziz Reza gave me find out of Shakib. At first he gave me still pictures. He was very much requesting to chance Shakib. I wanted to see the boy face to face in his requests. Mr. Aziz brought him to our office. We liked him at first sight. Shakib deserved to be a hero. I give chance him to the movies because I saw something like that in him. Someone may have requested to take him or I gave him the opportunity. But the fact is that he was worthy.”
