‘Mentally unbalanced’ actor Shahriar Shuvo
The identity of an unbalanced man was recognized from social media Facebook – he was identified as actor Shahriar Shuvo. Once he was a regular face on TV and worked in many popular dramas, telefilms and TVC. At present, in the tragic irony of life, he is wandering around like a ‘madman’.
Some of his pictures with captioned: “Shahriar Shuvo, once a popular actor, has lost his mental balance and is wandering around Jamalpur station”, went viral on various groups of social media for several days. The posts also called the concern for finding him.
The drama industry took the matter seriously. The Director Guilds, Actors Association also sought out actor Shahriar Shuvo. They were able to contact him on Sunday.
Finally, the actor known from ‘Ponchom Bibahobarshiki’ is coming to Dhaka from Jamalpur. Ahsan Habib Nasim, general secretary of the Performing Artists Association, confirmed the matter.
“We were concerned about Shuvo. We managed to get in touch with him on Sunday. He informed us the details of the incident. However, Shuvo told us that it was not a mental imbalance but fell into the ‘clutches of deception’,” he said.
He added that Shuvo went to Jamalpur for shooting a few days ago. He then lost his memory after having tea in a shop after being cheated by a gang there. Probably he was fed something mixed with tea. Since then, he has been wandering aimlessly for a few days. “Seeing him in such a condition, some local journalists and youth took him to the hospital. He is r recovering after initial treatment,” said Ahsan Habib Nasim.
