Apart from sharing my family name, Hero Alom and I don’t have much in common. Undeniably, his antics have kept me well entertained over the years.
More recently, Hero Alom has been in the headlines for something unsavory. Apparently he demanded a dowry of Tk. 200,000 and when refused, proceeded to hit his wife. I get it that a failed bid for stardom and a botched election campaign can make you desperate but doesn’t justify violence towards women. Ironically, this is where art resembles reality (except for the jail part).
Thankfully, his rise to mega stardom is as likely as my journey to the moon.
