Multinational star, Irrfan Khan, has been nominated for the Oscars yet again. Khan's movie, 'Doob: No Bed Of Roses' was nominated by Bangladesh under the Foreign Language Category for the Academy Awards 2019. The film is written and directed by Mostofa Sarwar Farooki. No Bed of Roses has been premiered at various film festivals namely 2017 Shanghai Film Festival, Vancouver Film Festival, Busan Film Festival and 39th Moscow International Film Festival. The Irrfan Khan starrer has garnered a lot of positive critical acclaim from both the countries since its release in October 2017.
No Bed of Roses stars Irrfan Khan in the lead role, essaying the protagonist, Javed Hasan. It also features Rokeya Prachi, Nusrat Imrose 'Tisha' and Parno Mittra. The film traces the life of Javed Hasan, a successful filmmaker, facing an existential crisis when he has a tryst with his daughter's childhood friend, Nitu (essayed by Mittra). The affair eventually leads to a national scandal. The movie revolves around love, family, separation and finally, reunion.
No Bed Of Roses marks Irrfan's 10th International Movie. The actor is known for his roles in movies like The Namesake, Slumdog Millionaire, The Lunchbox, Hindi Medium and Jurassic Park among others. Khan was last seen in Karwaan, co-starring Mithila Palkar and South star, Dulquer Salmaan. Currently, he is undergoing treatment in London after being diagnosed with a neuroendocrine disorder. It is a rare disorder that affects the interaction between the endocrine system (glands that produce and release hormones) and the nervous system, which can lead to failure of glands and consequently, organs.
The 91st Academy Awards, commonly known as the Oscars, is scheduled to be held on February 24, 2019. Oscars are regarded as the highest award of recognition appreciating technical and artistic excellence in the film industry from all around the world. The emblematic 'golden statue' is a coveted award held in a very high esteem.
