Pages: Where or how did you find the theme of Bangla Cine Award?
Mr. Ahmed: sometimes we sit together for discussion. There was not any definite subject, just discussion with everything of our day to day official affair.

Pages: What is your opinion to develop the film of Bangaldesh?
Mr. Ahmed: From my point of view, I think that our industry should make character based movie. Nothing can possible by a single person. We need appropriate plan to develop this industry. Otherwise every businessman can be benefited but the industry can never be benefitted in the long run. Film is not only the way of earning money but also the way of nursing art.
Pages: Say something about yourself?
Mr. Ahmed: I ‘m the Managing Director of BNS Logistics and working as a C.E.O of Bangla Cine Award. But during my job, I always behave as their elder brother. No boss is allowed in my team. We’re brothers and that is our strength.
