“It was like a thunder storm to me to know that young film director Rasel Ahmed is no more. He called me twice or thrice and met with me to show his trailer. I can’t even remember what we talked about! But his eyes, his love for his work is still resonating inside me! His intense desire to finish his film was stringer than the thunderstorm going on outside now!”

“How unfortunate I am, that I didn’t even get to know him. I just got to watch the trailer! And this is full of so many cinematic shots! This is unbelievable! Rasel Ahmed, this is my bad luck that I didn’t get any chance to meet you. I also don’t know if I will be able to see my first release or not! Your departure makes me feel empty.”
