DHAKA, May 15, 2021 (BSS) – ‘Hasina: A Daughter’s Tale’, a docudrama
bringing to life the trials and tribulations of Prime Minister Sheikh
Hasina went through following the assassination of her father
Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, is set to be rescreened on
television channels on her homecoming day on May 17.

The locally and globally acclaimed docudrama will be screened on BTV
and BTV World at 3:30 pm on the day while some private-run television
channels will also screen it, said a press release of Centre for
Research and Information (CRI) here today.

‘Hasina: A Daughter’s Tale’ was premiered at Star Cineplex on
November 15 in 2018. Following its screening at Star Cineplex,
Blockbuster Cinemas, Modhumita Cinema Hall, and Silver Screen, the
docudrama reigned at the box office for two weeks in a row.

The sweeping popularity prompted its screening in 35 cinema halls
across the country.

Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, and Nasrul Hamid, State Minister
for Power, Energy and Mineral Resources, produced the docudrama
