While Big B got nostalgic from the very chapter of Chittagong from the history, Shahrukh was intensely delighted with the whole experience put together in a film.
Big B tweeted, ”Chittagong’ the film by Bedabrata Pain premier tonight .. a moving touching experience .. sensitively shot and enacted ..’Chittagong’ a film that captures an important part of our history – freedom fight against British rule, by a bunch of school kids ! a real life story on real characters, where a Master Da lead a bunch of his school children in armed revolt against the British !’
‘Bedabrata Pain, first off director, was working at NASA, invented the RED camera for film, left it all to make films in Mumbai .. Met such old friends connected from Kolkata days .. Bedabrata’s mother-in-law was part of our gang of theatre actors .. such joy !! Those days and years of struggle for freedom, so full of emotion and spirit … would have wished to have been a part of it !!
‘Born in 1942 and under British Raj, was too young to have partaken in any freedom movement .. but some of the spirit imbibed from MB,’ he added
‘What a delightfully intense film Chittagong. All the best Bedo..Anurag Kashyap…Manoj..Vega..Nawazuddin..Shonali. Thanx for the experience,’ Shahrukh Khan tweeted.
