And with this, the film also launched its official promotional campaign. The campaign will run simultaneously in Bangladesh, Middle East, Canada, UK, Europe, Malaysia, Australia and New Zealand, as part of which the director and the lead cast will tour a number of countries in mid-October.
The impressive-looking poster has a pistol-slinging Shuvo at the forefront, flanked by a stone-faced Mahiya Mahi with a camera in hand (she plays a journalist in the film” and ABM Sumon in full combat gear hauling a scope-fitted assault rifle – with the backdrop showing what appears to be an apocalyptic view of Dhaka with billowing smoke and fire.
The film, which has been supported by the Dhaka Metropolitan Police, also casts Afzal Hossain, Shatabdi Wadud (who both play police-high-ups), Syed Hasan Imam and Quazi Nawshaba Ahmed. Produced by Three Wheelers Limtied, the film that was announced over three years ago in February 2014, and released its first (and only so far) teaser in
November last year.
“Dhaka Attack” will land in theatres on October 6.
