The one film that Rituparno Ghosh was looking forward to was 'Laaga Chunari Mein Daag' and he saw it all alone in a theatre in Kolkata.
'I had told Pradeep Sarkar I want to see the first print the minute it was out. He invited me for a show in Mumbai and when I was there, I had no time. The minute I landed in Kolkata on Friday afternoon I went straight for the first show of the film at a suburban theatre from the airport with my luggage.'
'I had reserved two seats in the Kolkata theatre from Mumbai itself. And I hate to go in company. The companion constantly interrupts my movie viewing. So I always prefer to go for all my movies alone. No one recognises me anymore with my bald head. This time I'm even more relieved that I went alone. I cried and cried throughout the first half. The tears would just not stop. Pradeep Sarkar has made an outstanding film. Rani is incredibly restrained.'
