Mr. Adittya Basak: I’m an undergraduate student of Maritime Law at Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman Maritime University, Bangladesh. My journey in the world of films and music started with a simple dream: to tell stories that people would remember. I began making videos for YouTube in 2016, and people liked what I made. This encouraged me to learn more and get better at my craft. As I learned, I started to work independently, taking on different projects that let me use my skills in new ways. I didn’t just stay behind the camera and edit visuals; I also wrote songs and compose music that touched people’s hearts. Some of my songs, like “Bhool Ar Shoor”, and “Mrito Pakhir Gaan,” became everyone’s favorite, and my films “Bhrom” and “Hoosh” have earned international praise.
