Plans for New Year's Eve
I want to spend my New Year's Eve with my family. Planning to turn my cell phone off, go for a long drive to find a mountain by the ocean and watch fireworks from a distance with music in my ears. The beginning of this year had been very hectic for me, so I want to spend the rest of the days in peace.
My Biggest Achievements of 2017
My biggest achievement this year was the release of the film Dhaka Attack and its impact within film enthusiasts around the world. I consider myself lucky to be a part of it. Everyone's love, appreciation and support for a more positively challenging tomorrow in the film fraternity have moved me. Without their support I wouldn't have been here today.
New Year's Resolution
My New Year's resolution for 2018 is to be a better son and to make my parents proud. In addition to this, I want to work in more exciting film projects, complete research for my PhD, and do something little everyday to make a positive impression in people's lives.
Something I'd like to change about myself in 2018
In the coming year, I want to bring some positive changes in me. I believe change is great as long as it is for the better. I think I am going to practice being a bit more humble and a bit less selfish (laugh)! This world needs better people now, why not be one of them!
A memorable moment of 2017
This year was genuinely a special one for me, and I can't just pick one particular moment. My life has taken a new turn. I have engaged myself in a variety of projects. I have also been doing good films with great directors. But most of all, I have seen the most beautiful thing a human being can see, which is “a dream”.
What I plan to achieve in 2018
I plan to do everything I could not achieve in 2017. I definitely will focus on my New Year's resolution. This world will be more beautiful if we change ourselves positively.
