Vidya Balan and Imtiaz Ali bow to Srijit Mukherji's RAJKAHINI
RAJKAHINI, an epic cinematic gem, directed by National Award winning director Srijit Mukherji, based on the partition of Bengal through a new border has not only wowed the audience but also has B-town fine talents like Vidya Balan and Imtiaz Ali raving for the film.

Says Vidya Balan, “I was completely blown by Raj Kahini .It is very powerful and yet moving which is unique because in my experience when a film makes you think ,it doesn’t let you feel and conversely a film that touches you rarely allows you to think. It was refreshing to see prostitutes having their own sexual desires and not just fulfilling others fantasies.Congratulations to Srijit and the entire team, particularly the actors Rituparna,Jishu,Sudipta and all the others who make the film so real and palpable almost as if it were happening in the here and now, like one is actually present in flesh and blood”
Imtiaz Ali almost felt that the film was revolutionary and said “Rajkahani is a loud protest against the loudest event in the history of our country - the partition of India and Pakistan. It is a fearless denial to uphold the hypocrisies of that time. It is a powerful movie that moved me and I would encourage people to watch it because this story has to be heard. Thanks to Sreejit for having made Rajkahani. Special mention for the remarkable performances by the girls!”
