Speaking at the event, Saswata Chatterjee said “I am indeed glad that I got the chance to portray him on screen. I only tried to copy him and his mannerisms. I will tell you an event. When the film Meghe Dhaka Tara was shown at a film festival in Kerala, the moment Ritwik was shown on screen, the audience clapped and whistled. It was not me who was getting the applause, it was the man. Such is his fan following”.

Veteran actress Madhabi Mukherjee who had worked with the legendary director said “Many find him a bit eccentric and foul mouthed. But he was indeed a man with a vision. He stuck to his ideals. I remember once a producer asked the number of songs and who will be the heroine of this film. He was so enraged that he said some foul words. Thank God the producer was a non-Bengali and could not understand anything. But one must see that he was very strict about his ideals and that is why I narrated this incident”.

Anindya Chattopadhyay said “I came to this event simply to listen to the stories of Madhabi di. He knows so much about Riwik Ghatak. This was indeed be an enriching session”.

Published by Manab Chaudhuri, the book has been priced at Rs 995.

Speaking at the press conference, producer Raj Chakroborty said “We were being given prime time slots but I chose this particular time. This is simply because of the fact that I wanted to entertain the people who after coming back from their offices will be able to relax by watching this show. Comedy is something which is slowly decreasing in our day to day lives and hence this show has been started to make the people laugh out loud”.
