Ekushey Padak recipient noted actor, playwright and director Abul Hayat was honoured with a lifetime award titled ‘Nayok Raj’ Lifetime Award at an award giving ceremony organised by BFTCC (Bengal Film & Television Chamber of Commerce) at the Spring Club located next to Bartaman Bhawan in Kolkata, India.
The award was given to him on June 8.
On receiving the award, Abul Hayat said, “I really didn’t know that our dramas and movies are so followed by Kolkata audience. They are very enthusiastic about our works. I like the subject very much. And even more like the name of our country’s ‘Nayok Raj’ I was honoured with this lifetime honor. Razzak Bhai was a respectable person.
I had a very good relationship with him. I have never thought of these in the movie. These Bengali people know me; they also know the work I do. It is a very emotional subject.”
Abul Hayat also said, “I want to share my acting experience with the present generation. I acted in the play ‘Tipu Sultan’ for the first time while studying in the fifth standard. My first play on stage was ‘Buro Shaliker Ghare Ro’ under the direction of respected Ataur Rahman for Nagorik Natya Sampradaya. My first play on TV was ‘Oedipus’ produced by Zia Haider. The first drama I directed on stage was ‘Agantuk’ and ‘Harjit’ on TV. My first acting movie was Ritwik Ghatak’s ‘Titas Ekta Nodir Naam’. In 1974, under the direction of late Aly Zaker, I acted in the play ‘Baki Itihas’ on stage and was awarded the award titled ‘Sequence Award for Instituting Naturalistic Acting on Bangladesh Stage’. It is also a history because it was the first stage play in exchange for tickets in Bangladesh.”
