The chief guest showered praises on the film, Bollywood, & wanted more people to come to Afghanistan for their film shooting as in the past for some famous movies like DHARMATAMA, KHUDA GAWAH, KABUL EXPRESS, etc. He appreciated the Director’s understanding of Afghan culture & the theme chosen which is very close to all its citizens. His words had an ever lasting impact on the audience which was spell bound during the film – “For you all it’s a story and a film but for us it’s reality. What has happened in reality was much more which cannot be depicted on the screen but we have experienced it”
