Actress Nusrat Imroz Tisha, producer Abu Hayat Mahmood script writer Shoaib Chowdhury and have been threatened to take to the temple and sacrifice them for making a special television drama ‘Bijoya’ produced by Crown Entertainment on the occasion of Durga Puja.

In addition, an anti-traditional religion and anti-Islamic group made death threats by making indecent remarks. Nusrat Imroz Tisha has played the lead role in the movie ‘Bijoya’. Irfan Sajjad has acted opposite Tisha. Director Abu Hayat Mahmud, Nusrat Imroz Tisha and storyteller Shoaib Chowdhury received death threats from several Facebook IDs when some still images of the shooting were recently published on social media. Shoaib Chowdhury said, “So far, I have not promoted any poster or teaser of the drama.” It seems to me that someone is conspiring to shut down the organization by jealousy of the work of the Crown. If anyone thinks so, it is not right. Since the shooting, several people have been threatening to kill me, along with drama team. In the meantime, we have collected information from several people and are preparing to file a case.

Earlier, a legal notice was sent against actress Nusrat Imroz Tisha for inciting conversion and sectarianism over Bengali Hindu community. Lawyer Sumon Kumar Roy sent the legal notice on behalf of complainant Liton Krishna Das on Monday (October 12). The drama ‘Bijoya’ produced by Abu Hayat Mahmud has been written by Saleh Uddin Shoaib Chowdhury. Legal notices have been sent to all of them. The accused mentioned in the notice are, kindly requested to withdraw the controversial ‘Bijoya’ drama within 7 days of receipt of the legal notice. Otherwise, any civil and criminal court in the country will take recourse against them, the lawyer said. Director Abu Hayat Mahmud said such a notice is ridiculous. Because so far we have not published anything in the drama, how did they understand the story of the drama? Let them watch the drama first and then comment.

I make dramas for the audience. There is no question of doing such a thing that hurts religion thoughts.
Lawyer Sumon Kumar Roy was asked how he came to know that conversion and sectarianism had been incited before the drama was aired.
In reply, he told the media, “We have seen the story of the drama published in the newspapers and it seems that conversion and communalism are being incited. We will fight legally.”

Tajul Islam, deputy CEO of Crown Entertainment said the Crown authorities are taking legal action against those who made obscene comments and made death threats about ‘Bijoya’. Several criminals have already been identified. We are preparing to file a case.
