After this performance it was the turn of the Popular Choice Awards. The first announcement was for Best Debut Actor, Best Male and Best Female Singer of the Year.
After the nominations were shown on the screen, singers Bappa Majumdar and Armin Musa announced the names of the winners and handed over the three awards.
Although they shared the stage on the basis of harmony and cordiality, the two MCs again clashed. This time the topic was ‘Who is better – actor or singer?’ But, the tune of the song ‘Shada Shada Kala Kala’ interrupted Siam and Preetom’s argument.
Actor and singer Chanchal Choudhary presented the song along with a dance performance by the members of Eagle Dance Group. To put an end to the supremacy debate, the MC went to Chanchal Choudhary and declared that actors and singers are not less capable than each other, rather they are equal.
Satisfied with the decision, the MC announced that the next segment is for the four best actors and actresses of film and drama in the Popular Choice Awards category. Actor Zahid Hassan along with Afsana Mimi announced the names of the winners and handed over the awards to them.
Meanwhile, the clock also kept ticking with the tune of the song, the rhythm of the dance and the excitement of victory. The MC then wished that the clashes and fights would stop and the country would develop.
Finally, the curtain fell on the star-studded night of Meril-Prothom Alo with the chorus of the song ‘Dhono Dhanno Pushpo Bhora’ in the voices of singers Rajib, Sabbir, Joy Shahriar, Kishore Das, Nishita Barua, Salma, Jhilik and Kornia. award.
