Entertainment Desk: ‘Two days before his death, I spoke to Farooq from Singapore. Then he said, “Inshallah, I will return home soon after recovering.” My brother returned home, but not alive, but as a corpse.’ Rezaul Karim Humayun Master, his own cousin, brave freedom fighter, said these things while reminiscing about hero Farooq on Wednesday (May 17) afternoon.

My mother took me to Gior to see Farooq. Even though he was 6 months younger than me, he always called me when he came home. His relationship with me was just like a friend. He was very fond of drama since his childhood. If there was no work in Dhaka, he used to come to the village to perform plays and won the hearts of the locals by acting in various roles in the village.
