‘Gazi Bhai made me Sucharita’
Her real name is Baby Helen. However, Rupali is known to the world as Sucharita. She rose to fame by playing the role of heroine in Dhakai cinema in the 80s and later in a lead role.
The biggest contributor to Baby Helen’s rise to fame was their legendary lyricist, producer and producer Gazi Mazharul Anwar. He died this Sunday (September 4) morning. Thus, the grieving actress could not control her tears.
Sucharita came to Gazi Mazharul Anwar’s house in Baridhara. He went to the two-story house and met his family, consoled them. Then came down crying. Seeing her, the media workers stepped forward, but the timeless heroine couldn’t speak properly to cry.
Wiping her eyes, Sucharita said only, “Gazi Bhai made me Sucharita. Him, Azizur Rahman, Dilip Biswas, I grew up in their hands. I didn’t think I would have to talk about him like that.
Meanwhile, Aziz Reza, the successful dance director of Dhakai cinema, was based in Mymensingh. He learned the news of Gazi Mazharul Anwar’s death from there. So it didn’t take long. Rushed to Dhaka, in front of Gitikbir’s house.
As he spoke, his throat also began to weep. Controlling himself, he said, ‘No brother Gazi, I can’t believe it. I knew him as a father. Ghazi Bhai’s contribution to my future Aziz Reza is enormous. I have worked in all of Gazi Bhai’s films. Every time he called, I ran. I have come to this house (Gazi Mazharul Anwar’s house) thousands of times. The relationship I had with Gazi Bhai was with only one other person, Razzak Bhai. My father is gone, Razzak bhai is gone, Gazi bhai is also gone. I can’t explain how much it hurts.
Incidentally, on Monday, September 5 at around 11:30 a.m., Gazi Mazharul Anwar will receive a state “honor guard” at the Central Shaheed Minar. After that, the first funeral will take place at Bad Zohar FDC. He will be buried at Banani Cemetery after the second Janaza at Azad Mosque in Gulshan.
