“I am really fortunate that I worked with Mrinalda in that phase of his [life] because whether you look at Khandhar or you look at Genesis or you look at Ek Din Achanak, it was in the era when Mrinalda was rediscovering himself. I think Mrinalda was struggling with his own identity and questioning himself, and asking whether he was mediocre. I think that’s a very courageous thing for an artist to do, to be able to apply that lens through which you see the world also to yourself, and say that you are not above question.”

Shabana Azmi on working with Mrinal Sen during the 1980s in “Mrinal Sen- An Era In Cinema” directed by Rajdeep Paul.
