Pori Moni| The Daily Star

With the film “Adventure of Sundarban” releasing today, Pori Moni is set to make a hat trick in her career, as this will be the third consecutive year that she releases a film in the first quarter.

Today, she will visit cinema halls across the city with her beloved son Rajya and husband Sariful Razz. 

“Razz has already bought the tickets for the film. We will all go together to watch ‘Adventure of Sundarban’. I will make this day memorable. These are the memories that make an artiste’s life worthwhile,” said Pori Moni to The Daily Star. 

This is not the first time Rajya will be watching a film in the theater. When Sariful Razz’s film “Damal” was released, they took their son to the premiere show. 

Pori Moni went to different schools across the city along with her son, Rajya, to promote the film. When asked how it made her feel to see such young audiences cheer for her film, she replied, “This is the first time I have dealt with such cute and young audiences. They are so innocent and adorable l, that they don’t pretend to be nice. You can see the excitement in their eyes. It’s been a great experience for me.”

“Adventure of Sundarban” has been shot in Dhaka, Mongla Port, the Sundarbans, and scenic locations along rivers in Chandpur and Barishal, during the COVID lockdown. Pori Moni had to cut her hair short for her character in the film. 

“People around me know how much I love my hair. My hair has always been long. However, during the casting, my director told me to cut my hair short for the role. I was a little hesitant at first, because I have never done it for any film. Initially, my director also agreed that I didn’t have to cut my hair. However, after waking up the next day, I thought, “Let’s see what happens if I cut my hair short.”

In this film, Pori Moni shared the screen with “Shaan” actor Siam Ahmed. 

“Siam was such a good co-actor. With him, I never feel that I am shooting. He is very dedicated to what he does. That’s what I like about him. I hope the audience will like our pair in this film just like they did in Bishwo Shundori,” said Pori Moni. 

Apart from these films, Pori Moni has “Maa,” directed by Aranya Anwar, in the pipeline awaiting release.

“I have never been more excited for the release of a film than I am for this one. I just love my character in this film,” said Pori Moni. 

In the new year, she signed a new film, “Cholo Bodley Jai” directed by Abu Raihan Jewel. The shooting of the film will begin in August. 

Pori Moni urged parents to bring their children to theatres to watch “Adventure of Sundarban.”
