Nayeem Mahbub is a writer and filmmaker based in Dhaka, Bangladesh. He has a soft spot for Bangladeshi commercial films, which break almost every single rule of filmmaking, logic and physics, but with a maximum amount of charm. He was interested in making something new in the spirit of these films. Murgi Keno Mutant was that film. He wrote the script during the avian influenza scare.
