Arindam Chaudhuri, the delighted Producer of The Last Lear added, “When you make films that challenge the boundaries of film making, awards become a very important part of recognition. I am obviously very happy and excited. During the entire shoot, for me it was like a young fan watching his favourite star perform! And I feel proud to be associated with one of his career best performances". With the screen award for best Indian film in English, the Stardust award for best actor, perhaps it"s now over to the National awards next!
