Default RIP - Anwar Hossain

Inna Lillahi wa inna ilaihi raji'un...

Anwar Hossain, who is popularly known as the “uncrowned nawab of the Bangla cine-world” died at a city hospital early Friday. He was 82.
The superhero of the silver screen breathed his last around 2:00am at Square Hospital in the capital, media reports said.
He had been suffering from different kinds of old age complications, the reports added.
He left behind his wife, four sons and a daughter, and a host of relatives and well-wishers to mourn his death.
His first Namaz-e-Janaza was held at Baitul Mukarram national mosque after Jumma prayer and second one was held at his long-known work place at capital’s FDC.
Then the legend was laid to his eternal rest at Mirpur Intellectual Graveyard in the afternoon on his mother’s grave.
The veteran artiste had acted in over 500 films.
Anwar Hossain received the National Film Awards for best actor for his brilliant work in the film “Lathiyal”, and again for “Golapi Ekhon Train-e”, as supporting actor.
He once again was awarded the National Film Award for the film “Dayi Ke” and was awarded BACHSAS Award.
Last year, the prominent actor was awarded Lifetime Achievement Award in National Film Award for his vital role in our film industry.
Hossain has played myriad characters throughout his illustrious career, be it of a nawab, hero, rebellious youth or father.
But it was his eponymous role in “Nawab Sirajuddoula”, directed by noted actor- director Khan Ataur Rahman aka Khan Ata, that won the audience’s hearts and made him a household name.
After the release of the film in 1967, he acquired the nickname of Nawab.
The talented actor was born on December 6, 1931 in Jamalpur, as the third child of Nazir Hossain and Shadiya Khatun. His first footing on acting was in school life.
He spent busy time on the silver screen, namely “Shurjoshnan”, “Khacher Dewal”, “Dui Diganta”, “Raja Elo Shoharey”, “Godhulir Prem” and so on.
Beside Bangla, Anwar Hossain also acted in Urdu films. His most noticeable works on Urdu films are “Nachghor”, “Bahana” and “Ujala”, and prospered there too.
The year 1965 was the most memorable in his career, as his film “Rupban” was released. “Rupban” introduced him in a new avatar before the spectator, and it was “Rupban” that redefined his popularity.
After that, he acted in “Etotuku Asha” directed by Narayan Ghosh Mita. Almost simultaneously, he worked in “Shat Bhai Chompa” directed by Khan Ata. Some of his other remarkable pre-independence works include “Neel Akash-er Niche”, “Ka-Kha-Ga-Gha-Uma”, “Ghurnijhor” and “Sharlipi” etc.
Anwar Hossain also played the lead character in the famous film “Jibon Theke Neya” directed by the great Zahir Raihan. In it, Anwar Hossain superbly portrayed the character of a political leader.
His last work in our film industry was “Ghani”.
