Three decades of Shabnaz, Nayeem’s ‘Chandni’

Popular Dhallywood actors of 90s Shabnaz and Nayeem’s debut movie ‘Chandni’ was released on October 4 in 1991. The movie completed 30 years of its release on Monday. The actor couple has also completed 28 years of their conjugal life on October 5. Their friends, family as well as many celebrities have wished them on social media on the auspicious day.

About the 30th year of ‘Chandni’ and their marriage anniversary, Nayeem said, “I can’t imagine how 30 years have been gone. I feel like our debut movie ‘Chandni’ was released a few days ago. The director of the film Ehtesham is not among us. I and Shabnaz miss him always as he was our guardian in the industry. His contribution to the Bangladesh film industry is unforgettable. On the occasion of three decades of the movie we want to pay our respect to him.”

Shabnaz said, “Though we are not working in the film industry now but the industry is like another family to us. We are very happy that after so many years the audience still remember and loves us. We are overwhelmed by them.”
