Salauddin Lavlu (Bengali: সালাউদ্দিন লাভলু; born 24 January)[1] is a Bangladeshi actor, screenwriter and television director. His works generally consist of television films and telenovelas. His productions are usually comedies, and they generally are immensely popular with the Bangladeshi audiences.[citation needed] His notable works include the television films Basto Doctor (2004), Goruchor (2007), Dholer Baddo (2008) and Warren (2009), along with the telenovelas Ronger Manush (2004), Vober Hat (2007), Ghor Kutum (2008), Alta Sundori (2009) and Sakin Sarisuri (2009).

Early life[edit]

Lavlu was born in Jugia village, near Kushtia town in the Kushtia District in the Khulna Division of western Bangladesh.[1]


Early career[edit]

In 1977, Lavlu moved to Dhaka, to join the Aranyak Natyadal Theatre, where he acted in stage plays until 1985 but desired to do other things.

After Bangladesh Television (BTV) started its own production, he acted in several television dramas . In the early 1990s, he explored other options and began working as a photographer. In 1997, after working as a photographer for about six years, he found a new passion as a director.

Acting and directing[edit]

Lavlu made his television film directorial debut with Koutob, written by Masum Reza.[2] Among the critically acclaimed television films he directed by 2004 are Dichakrojaan (1997), Gahargachi (1997), Ekjon Aynal Lashkar (1999), Adhuli (2002) and Gor (2002).[3]

The communities in villages are strongly-woven together. They are simple and transparent people with very little demands and very small dreams. And they have deep concerns for people around them and they are extremely hospitable. The people in the city however are the complete opposite. They are very individualistic. They have no concern for people outside their immediate family and friends. Moreover, most of the people living in the city have deep roots in villages and when they watch my productions, they can relate to the life style and the characters.

Since then he has directed and acted in five telenovelas. Two of these include Vober Hat (2007) and Ghor Kutum (2008). Both of these telenovelas included the same stars, such as Mosharraf Karim and Chanchal Chowdhury (a favourite of Lavlu's, cast in most of his work).
