Director Sujit Mondal said “Every director has a dream to work with people of the status I have worked with for this film and I am quite lucky to have done that. Everyone has worked as a unit. The actors have given their best. And though Jeet Ganguly is always accused of composing the best songs for me but I am just happy with that and hope that Raaj will keep doing so.”
Upcoming actor Sujjoy Ghosh was highly praised by Mithun Chakrabarty who said Sujjoy has great potential and he even instructed Mimoh to watch and learn from Sujjoy’s approach to acting.
Sujjoy plays a grey character in the film and said he is proud to share space with so many big names of the industry and he has also learned a lot from the experience he gained while shooting this film.
Sujjoy later expressed immense happiness for being so highly appriecated by one of the icons of Indian cinema. He said that he was just speechless when he heard those words from Mithun Chakrabarty.
Rocky will open on 26th of April and there is much speculation that loads of comparisons are waiting for Mimoh as people will measure him with his legendary father. After all being a super-star's kid is not always about advantages.
