Siam Ahmed

Dhallywood heartthrob Siam Ahmed is all set to make his debut in Tollywood alongside veteran Indian actor Prosenjit Chatterjee for Sayantan Ghosal’s new directorial, which is yet to be titled.

The film will be centered on the theme of family relationships, starring Prosenjit Chatterjee, Srabanti and Ayoshi in the lead roles.

It is learned that the shooting of the movie will start in London this August. It will be produced by Shadow Films and Roadshow Films.

Regarding his involvement in the project Siam Ahmed said, "I’m not allowed to reveal the details about the story yet; the director will inform everyone in time. The least I can say is that this is a movie with a family story, which highlights the narratives of two generations. Audiences from both Kolkata and Bangladesh will be able to relate to the film.”

“Everyone in the team has been talking to the producer about the movie for the last year and a half,” Siam said. “Although we had a tough time selecting the story, in the end we found a story which everyone liked,” he added.

Earlier this year, Siam also signed a contract to act in a Bollywood movie called 'In the Ring' (Story of a Burqa Boxer) alongside Indian actress Mithila Palkar, known for Netflix’s ‘Little Things.’ The film will be directed by Alka Raghuram, an American filmmaker of Indian descent.
