'Kothao Keu Nei' to return to BTV

Independent Online Desk
'Kothao Keu Nei' to return to BTV

Humayun Ahmed's popular tv series 'Kothao Keu Nei' is going to be re-telecast by BTV.

Peoples' of Bangladesh are staying at home due to coronavirus outbreak. So, BTV took the initiative to eliminate the boredom of the peoples' staying at home by re-telecasting the immensely popular tv series 'Kothao Keu Nei'.

Humayun Ahmed's most enduring character was a lovable rogue called Baker Bhai.

A useless layabout who hung around teashops, Baker was also the local do-gooder. Baker Bhai role was played by Asaduzzaman Noor.

Because of his tendency to help out damsels in distress, Baker became a sensation on Bangladesh television.

But in the drama ''Kothao Keu Nei'', Baker was convicted - wrongly - of murder, which infuriated people all over the country.

Protests broke out everywhere, demonstrations were brought out.

Letters and petitions urged Ahmed not to kill off Baker Bhai. But Ahmed stuck to his storyline and Baker Bhai was hanged.

For years afterwards, special prayers were held in many localities to pray for the departed soul of this fictional character.

Ahmed himself was quite perturbed by this public agitation over Baker Bhai's hanging.
