Bashar trades floodlights for arc lights

It’s ‘cuts’ and ‘good shots’ of a different kind for former Bangladesh captain Habibul Bashar. His stint with the ICL presumably at a dead end, the former Bangladesh captain has reinvented himself in a new avatar - as an actor. Specifically, as a policeman in a Bengali-language telefilm, ‘Password’, to be screened as part of the Eid celebrations.

“Earlier I used to think acting was easy, but it’s mighty difficult,” he told BD News24.com. “You have to concentrate hard, even more than facing up to Shane Warne. I’m delighted. I have played cricket for most of my life, but I wouldn’t mind another shot at facing at the cameras.”

The stage was set ever since Khaled Mashud made his theatre debut last Eid, and though Bashar’s shoot was just for a day, the director has not ruled out another day of roleplaying. Action replay you said?
