Anurag Basu is busy with his globe trotting for the multiple premiers of his latest film LIFE IN A...METRO.
Elated at the response that his film has gained in it's UK premier, he says, "It was phenomenal to see the way UK people responded to the film. They came in hordes and hordes and even though we were expecting a good response, this was something that even we had never dreamt of."
But he would have certainly expected a storm of a kind considering the fact that Shilpa is a household name now in UK. "Fair point, but to see so many Brits come forward to support the movie is quite overwhelming, isn't it?" he confesses.
So how has the media reacted to the film? "It has been generally quite good so far. I have been told that DAILY TELEGRAPH has given it a 3 star rating with some flattering remarks to boost the film further. In Dubai too the response was heartwarming.
With the entire world waking up to the film, how is he feeling as the film releases today? "Well, it has been some real hard labor that has gone into making this film. Effort put by anyone involved has to be witnessed to be believed. I am sure each of the actors in the movie would be noticed for the work they have put into the project and the way these characters have emerged on the screen."
