The series will be aired on Duronto TV from the Eid day till the fifth day of Eid at 1:30pm and 8:00pm.
Meher Afroz Shaon said, “Humayun has lots of works on children. Child characters always had a special role in his dramas. Duronto Television is working for children nowadays, so we are making ‘Botol Bhoot’ for children.”
Lutfar Rahman Nirjhar has written the script while the film stars Mamunur Rashid, Azad Abul Kalam, Jhuna Chowdhury, Abdullah Rana, Wasek, Shahnaz Sumi, Prinon, Joyat, Ritu and others.
About the story, shaon said, a man looking like Rabindranath Tagore presents a seven-year-old boy named Humayun a spirit confined in a bottle. The boy asks the ghost to help him out as he is fed up with his uncle and math teacher’s persistent insistence on studying.
In the summer, a football event is held at his school. Humayun’s club wins the trophy with the help of the spirit and he decides to throw a reception in the spirit’s honour.
However, he can’t find him anymore. Did the spirit really help him out? The viewers will have to wait till the Eid to get the answer.
The series will be aired on Duronto TV from the Eid day till the fifth day of Eid at 1:30pm and 8:00pm
