Pallavi said, “When I saw Vivek’s name as the winner on screen, I was happy. But when I saw my name as the winner after a while, I could not believe that my name had been announced. After a while, I realized that I had produced this film as well as acted in it. ‘
Vivek Agarhari told ABP News after winning the National Award for Screenplay and Dialogues in ‘The Tashkent Files’ about the mysterious death of the country’s second Prime Minister Lal Bahadur Shastri,’ I always wanted to win an award for screenplay. And I am very happy. I am happy to receive this award today. ‘
Had negative discussions
Vivek further added, “People were having many negative discussions about my dialogues in the film and were saying that there are too many dialogues in the film, they should be reduced. Not only that, but also about the length of the film It was being said that it should be reduced a bit and today I have won the National Award for Screenplay and Dialogues. What could be more gratifying for me. “
Vivek also expressed happiness over his wife Pallavi winning the award and said, “I felt that Shweta Prasad Basu, Mithun Chakraborty and Pallavi Joshi have done a great job in the film and I had high expectations from her acting.” Now obviously not everyone can get the National Award. ‘
On the success of ‘The Tashkent Files’ at the box office, Pallavi Joshi said,’ The credit for the success of this film goes completely to the common people, who gave so much love to this film. But before the release of the film, a lot of negative things were being written about this film elsewhere. ‘
Vivek says, “We were not even getting theaters for the release of the film. As such, the film was released in only 150 theaters and the film did good business by being in theaters for over 100 days.
