Thakur meets Bangladesh minister, says Delhi and Dhaka to release Mujib biopic in March 2022

NEW DELHI: Union information and broadcasting minister Anurag Thakur and his Bangladeshi counterpart Hasan Mahmud on Tuesday discussed a host of issues ranging from people-to-people exchanges, the International Film Festival of India and bilateral film production amongst others.
At their meeting, Thakur announced India and Bangladesh will release a biopic on ‘Bangabandhu’ Sheikh Mujibur Rahman in March 2022 to commemorate 50 years of Bangladesh’s liberation and 75 years of Indian Independence. The two ministers also discussed the celebration of ‘Maitri Diwas’ on December 6, for which an ‘action plan’ will be drawn up and released soon.
Mahmud, the first Bangladeshi leader to travel to India after Prime Minister Narendra Modi visited Dhaka in January this year, also met with external affairs minister S Jaishankar.
Describing his meetings with the ministers as “very good”, Mahmud, at a function organised by the Bangladesh high commission, emphasised the need for “greater integration” in the region. “People-to-people contact and bond shared between people of the two countries is prehistoric. But this is also one of the least integrated places. That is the reality… We have to work on that issue… Even though we speak the same language and have the same culture… for movement of people, there are many obstacles till today. These have to be lifted or made a lot easier,” he said.
Jaishankar said that he discussed media and bilateral cooperation with Mahmud.
Mahmud, who is on a three-day visit to India, also said he was moved during the event to inaugurate the ‘Bangabandhu Media Centre’ at the Press Club of India on Monday and reiterated his gratitude to the Indian people and soldiers who contributed to Bangladesh’s liberation.
