Their loss to the film industry is irrevocable but the magic of their movies will continue to entertain generations hereafter," said Australian-Indian filmmaker Mitu Bhowmick Lange, who is director of IFFM.

"I had a ball of a time working on it and there was this specific scene in the climax, which I was so thrilled about. When I shot for the movie, a few years ago, it was solely because the subject spoke to me at a personal level. It is a much-need conversation in today's times with the visa restrictions on South Asians has become a topic of much debate and discussion," Shweta said.
