President of the Film Federation of India (FFI), Firdausul Hasan said: “This type of a cultural conference between the two friendly countries should have taken place a long time ago. It is finally happening and through such a huge event. We are grateful to the cultural personalities of both countries who worked very hard to make this possible. Without such cooperation and support, it would have been difficult to organize such a big event. I believe this event will add a new dimension to the old friendship between us.”
