National Award-winning composer Tanvir Tareq will be seen on the big screen as a musician along with directing music for film maker Afzal Hossain’s upcoming children’s film ‘Maniker Lal Kakra.’

Tanvir told UNB that this was a surprising offer for him.

“Afzal bhai one day asked me whether I could come with the guitar in the next day’s shoot and his request was like an order to me.”

The actress was singing the song and I had to play the guitar with her in that scene, he said.

Afzal at first told about two songs for the film. One was for the story where actress Sohana Saba will lip sync and another was the theme track, said Tareq.

The filmmaker chose a song of Tagore, “Diner Belay Bashi Tomar Bajiyechile,” he said. Both the songs were composed for guitar as Afzal requested, said the music director.

Regarding his new experience of acting Tanvir said,” Probably this is the first and last time I’d be seen acting. But at least I can now say I’ve acted in a film once!”

“Being a part of a legendary filmmaker like Afzal Hossain's film was a big achievement for me. Maybe he included me in this small part on the screen out of affection”.

Maniker Lal Kakra is a film based on writer and novelist Manik Bandopadhyay's story while Masum Reza has written the script of the movie.

Ferdous Ahmed and Sohana Saba have been casted for the movie.
