Kolkata: Biopics on political figures are no new phenomena. Over the years several Heads of States’ stories have been captured on screen and the latest to join the elite list is Bangladesh Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina, as per news agency ANI. In fact, 2021 also marks the 50th anniversary of India’s resounding victory over Pakistan over the Liberation of Bangladesh.
The 70-minute docu-drama titled Hasina-A Daughter’s Tale is jointly produced by the Centre for Research and Information and Applebox Films. According to the makers, the documentary delves into her personal space and not professional and is set to release soon.
Daughter of the founder of Bangladesh, Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, Hasina’s rise to the post of the Premier has not been a cakewalk, as she has had to face extreme challenges on the way. An exemplary elevation to the zenith, she has even faced assassination attempts and had to deal with the trauma of the merciless killing of her father and other family members on August 15, 1975. Hasina being out of the country, escaped the coup d’etat by the Army.
Since then, she has slowly and steadily risen in the political corridors to hold the PM’s post twice and is also the longest-serving PM in the country.
We are looking forward to the docu-drama, it’s worth it.
