Shakib's motion picture cameo
Shakib Al Hasan's celebrity status in Bangladesh has taken a leap after he shot scenes for a Bangla movie during the weekend.
He made a guest appearance for Shob Kichu Pechone Fele (Leaving Everything Behind) at the Cox's Bazar beach. He parachuted on to the beach and played cricket with five friends, the main characters in the movie. Director Rajibul Hossain told Bangla daily Prothom Alo that the movie is about the adventures of these five friends.
Shakib is a regular in TV advertisements in the country and also supports several charities as brand ambassador for various products.
