Popular filmmaker and director Mostafa Sarwar Farooki was hospitalised after he fell sick on Monday evening.

His hospitalisation was verified by his wife, actress Nusrat Imrose Tisha.

Tisha wrote on her verified Facebook page on at 1 am on Tuesday,” Mostafa has been feeling a little ill since last evening. After transporting him to the hospital, the doctors advised him to have an angiogram. It was then informed that he suffered a mild stroke.”

“He is now being observed in the Neuro ICU. Please keep Mostafa Sarwar Farooki in your prayers," Tisha wrote.

According to the sources, the director is at a private hospital in the capital‍‍`s Panthapath.

He is currently being closely monitored by the doctors but now out of danger.

Fans and admirers, including many popular celebrities, have commented on and shared the post while asking for prayers for the acclaimed director.

After becoming successful in television fiction-making, Farooki debuted as a filmmaker with ‘Bachelor’ (2004), featuring an ensemble cast including the newly-elected lawmaker Ferdous Ahmed, Humayun Faridi, Shabnoor, Aupee Karim, Jaya Ahsan, Marzuk Russell and others.

After that, he continued his journey as a filmmaker with ‘Made in Bangladesh’, ‘Third Person Singular Number’, ‘Ant Story’ (Piprabiddya), ‘Television’, ‘Doob: No Bed of Roses’ and his most talked-about film ‘Saturday Afternoon (Shonibar Bikel), which is yet to have a proper theatrical release in Bangladesh.

With ‘Ladies & Gentleman’ (2021), Farooki debuted in the OTT industry; however, he debuted as an actor in Chorki’s first film under the ‘Ministry of Love’ project, titled ‍‍`Something Like An Autobiography‍‍` alongside Tisha.
