The film 'Monpura' has the star casting which is not based on glamour of face but the glamour of acting. Chanchal chowdhury plays the role of sonai. new Comer Farhana Mili plays the role of 'Pori'- daughter of a boatman. and this young couple is well supported by veteran actors like - Mamunur Rashid(Aranyak Natyadal) and Fazlur Rahman babu(also from Aranyak).

As the shooting started on June,2007- the shooting unit had to face some serious problems. it is the rainy season in Bangladesh. And outdoor shooting is just not suitable in this season. but the demand of 'Monpura' was to shoot in pouring rain. so the shooting unit had to face all the trouble during that period. Once the director of Monpura, giasuddin salim said that, the nature has played with us during shooting. but it also has offered us with some great moment for the movie. 'during the making of a movie you have to make a relation with nature. nature may make you suffer, but it will also provide you with something great'-said Giashuddin salim. Monpura's recent hype also suggest that all the hard work behind the movie will be paid off, perhaps.
