On not Winning an Award
I can well understand your deep frustration at not receiving the award for your film ‘Tapti Dhool’ (Hot Dust) which is a box office hit. You needn’t be put off by the decisions of juries which are often influenced by factors beyond their own control. Sometimes the ministry brings to bear its own pressures.
Your real success is in the eyes of the public from whom overwhelming praise has come.
All the best for your next film, ‘Kshitij’.
