Renowned Bangladeshi actor Ferdous has successfully completed a remarkable 25 years in the film industry. His journey began with the film "Buker Vitor Agun," directed by Chotku Ahmed, starring alongside iconic actor Salman Shah.

Prior to that, Ferdous showcased his acting prowess in Basu Chatterjee's, "Hothat Brishti," which created a buzz among audiences.

Remembering about the start of his journey in entertainment industry, Ferdous said, "Truly, it feels like 25 years have passed in the blink of an eye. So much unfolds before my eyes today. In the long journey of my acting career, I have encountered and connected with thousands of people. Many are no longer with us today, like, Basu da. I express my gratitude to my mentor, 'Hothat Brishti' producer Habib Uncle, who is like a father to me.

"I extend my thanks to the dear director Chotku bhai, who, by giving me the opportunity, has made me Ferdous today. I miss Basu da terribly – he was my friend, my guide, my mentor, my director, the artisan of 'Hothat Brishti'. Stay well, Basu da – this is my wish. I vividly remember Priyanka, Sreelekha, Monoj da, Nachiketa da, and all the artists of Hothat Bristi."
