“Shoojit Sarkar is no mean director .. he is many creative beings in one form of his body .. an alumni of the prestigious NSD – the National School of Drama, his acting qualities far outweigh his qualities as a Director ..” wrote Amitabh Bachchan.
Talking about how much he depended upon the director during the film’s shoot, Mr Bachchan added: “His own personal briefings of the nature of his characters he brings up, are the results of the performances seen .. for me at least all that I do or seem to do, are Shoojit in prosthetic makeup.. each little detail is brought out and suddenly there is an ease of the following that he wishes for .. we do what he enacts for us .. for me at least there is no individual output .. it is all his doing .. he tells, I follow ..”
