It was learned that Giasuddin Selim had contracted Nusrat Faria as the main role for the movie. The shooting was scheduled to start next month, however, the popular director could not get in touch with Nusrat Faria due to schedule trouble. As a result, rumors were circulating that Selim will contract Pori Moni for his film.

‘Monpura’ director Giasuddin Selim will represent Pori Moni in the role of ‘Rabeya’ in ‘Gunin’ – the actress also played the role of ‘Shuvra’ in the film ‘Swapnajaal’. Pori Moni signed the contract on Friday night.
“It feels good to work with the favorite director again. We sat for two days with the story and the character. I read the whole story and finally signed the contract,” Pori Moni said.
About the movie ‘Gunin’, Giasuddin Selim said the shooting set will be made under a pair of banyan trees at a place in Brahmanbaria from September 20. The shooting will start on October 10. Then the rest of the work will be done in Manikganj.
‘Gunin’ is the story of a farmer from a village 50 years ago where paranormal activities were cast out at a dan located outside the village. ‘Rabeya’ is a Muslim woman from the conservative society of that village.
Apart from Pori Moni, Mustafa Monwar, Jhuna Chowdhury, Iresh Zaker, Shariful Raj, artist Sarkar Apu, Nasir and others will also act in ‘Gunin’.
