The Japanese Wife is like a Japanese painting: Shabana Azmi

Shabana Azmi seems to be the one big Fan of Aparna Sen, has a lot to talk about The Japanese Wife and the maker of the fillum Aparna Sen.
Shabana Azmi says,

I believes director Aparna Sen is the true inheritor of legendary filmmaker Satyajit Ray.

I have seen ‘The Japanese Wife’ twice. It’s such a wonderful film. I think that Aparna Sen is the true inheritor of Satyajit Ray.

I am not saying because she is my very close friend, but I think she is the best filmmaker of the country. That’s why I have come to support the film even with my fractured foot.

Aparna and me share such a bonding that I can’t deny any of her request. And today I proved that if she expects me, I will come even on my single feet. That’s why I came today.

I had been to hospital today thinking they will remove the plaster but they have put a fresh plaster and I have to keep it for two more weeks.

Shabana also liked Rahul Bose and Raima Sen’s performance, She thinks that Rahul has given award winning performance in The Japanese Wife.

This is the best work of Rahul. He has given an award winning performance. If you see him in this film, you won’t get an ounce of urban, sophisticated and westernised Rahul Bose. I give full credit to Aparna.

Raima’s performance is outstanding too. ‘The Japanese Wife’ is like a Japanese painting.

Shabana is currently doing Gurinder Chadha’s “It’s a Wonderful Afterlife”. She also speaks about her movie,

I had to put on 25 pounds for ‘It’s a wonderful Afterlife’, which would be premiered in London. But probably I would not be able to attend it because of my fractured foot.

Shabana azmi visited the Premier of the movie even though she was on Wheelchair with her leg fractured, Now this proves Shabana a true fan or we can say a true Friend.
