Update : 18 Aug 2022, 13:30

A case has been filed against "Hawa" movie director Mejbaur Rahman Sumon for violating the Wildlife (Preservation and Security) Act, 2012.

The Wildlife Crime Control Unit (WCCU) of the Bangladesh Forest Department on Wednesday filed a case against the director of Bangla movie ‘Hawa’ for breaching the wildlife conservation laws, particularly in a scene that showed a Common Myna being kept in a cage.

On behalf of the forest department, the WCCU inspector Nargis Sultana lodged the case with a Dhaka court accusing the film director Mejbaur Rahman Sumon.

The film was released on July 29. It is known from the review of the film after its release that actor Chanchal Chowdhury killed and chewed a bird in this film.

Mejbaur Rahman Sumon claimed that no animal was harmed in the movie. “Dummies were used for the sake of the story,” he said.

He also said they put up a disclaimer on the issue in the beginning of the film.
