Today is the 10th death anniversary of late actor Manna, who, for his versatile acting quality, was one of the most popular actors in the Dhaka film industry. The popular actor will be recalled today by his family, colleagues, friends and fans.

Bangladesh Cholochitro Shilpi Samiti has organised a condolence meeting and doa mahfil at the Bangladesh Film Development Corporation Mosque after Asr prayer today on the death anniversary of actor Manna.

Besides, another milad mahfil will be held after Asr prayer at the residence of Manna in the capital’s Uttara area, where actors, directors, producers and artistes of film industry will be present.

Born in 1964 at Elenga in Tangail District, Manna’s acting career started in 1984 after he was discovered through a talent search programme by the National Film Development Corporation of Bangladesh.
