Culture Desk

Popular Dhallywood film star Nusrat Faria is going to host a Tk 30 million TV show tilted ‘Ma vs. Bou’ (Mother vs. Wife). The show will have 10 episodes of 15 minutes each. Before acting in films, Nusrat was a successful anchor. After she became busy with films, she has not hosted any TV show.
Now she is back to the small screen with this new venture. The TV show will be aired on Bangabd and Grameenphone Bioscope Channel in January. Nusrat said the trailer was complete and would be aired on Youtube on Sunday. Tamim Rahman Anshu is the director of the program. The show will be shot at the Film Development Corporation (FDC) from 17 to 22 December at a stretch. Asked why she decided on hosting a TV show after such a long time, she said, “The TV show has a budget of Tk 30 million. So you see it’s not an ordinary program. The idea of the show is unique and our audience has never seen such a program. That’s why I accepted the offer.”

Nusrat also hinted that she may resume her career as a presenter. “I have a five-year contract with Jazz Multimedia. I have taken their permission to do this show (Ma vs. Bou). If I get such offers, I will think of hosting TV shows again.” Nusrat did not want to elaborate about Ma vs Bou, only saying that a guest would participate along with a mother and her daughter-in-law. It will not be just the story of Bangladesh, but reflect the story of families around the world.
