Speaking about Kalpana Dutta director Ashutosh Gowariker said, "Kalpana Dutta was just 17 when the Chittagong Uprising took place. She was a voracious reader and was inspired by stories of the youngest revolutionaries. Along with her friend Pritilata Wadadar, she played different roles within the revolutionary movement, including that of a courier - transporting acid from Calcutta to Chittagong. After her arrest, the court took into consideration her age and sex and she was given transportation of life. After she got released in May 1939 she got married to Shri P. C. Joshi (General secretary of the Communist Party of India). The author Manini Chatterji is her daughter-in-law.
