After much speculation, controversial film star Pori Moni has signed Gias Uddin Selim directorial web film "Gunin".
Even though rumors had been circulating about Pori's involvement in the film, the official contract was signed on Friday evening at a restaurant in the capital.
"This is the first film that I have signed after returning from jail", said Pori Moni over the phone. "I've had discussions about the script and my character with the director. The story has touched my heart."
