They have also gained viewership. A few days ago, Shakib also received a government grant as a producer. The government is giving him a grant of Tk 65 lakh for a movie called 'Maya'.

The movie will be directed by Himel Ashraf, and Shakib Khan will be the play the lead role in the film. However, there was curiosity about who would be the heroine. This time Shakib himself confirmed that Puja Cherry will be with him in the movie.

The name 'Maya' is likely to be changed. The people concerned will decide according to the story and the situation. The story and�screenplay of the movie is written by Ferrari Farhad. Shooting for the movie will commence later this year.

Shakib Khan said, 'Maya' will be a big organized movie. Government-funded movies are usually made on a short scale. Shakib wants to change that idea. He said, "My movie will not be with the money that the government will give. Maya’s budget is too high. VFX alone will cost Tk 1.5 crore. In all, the budget will exceed Tk 4 crore."

Shakib Khan and Puja Cherry have teamed up and made the movie 'Golui'. The movie directed by SA Haque Alik was released last Eid-ul-Fitr. The audience likes their chemistry. The movie received a great response across the country. Relying on that success, Shakib is taking Puja as his heroine again.

Meanwhile, Shakib Khan is currently in the United States. He has been there for a green card since November last year. He has got that green card recently. So now he can easily travel Bangladesh-US. It is heard that he will return to the country before Eid-ul-Azha.
