Filmmaker Vishal Bhardwaj says he felt really bad at the delay in the release of Anurag Kashyap's production venture "Chittagong".
"I had already seen 'Chittagong' and I am very happy that it is releasing because it is such a beautiful film that it's non-release used to hurt me ('Chittagong' toh meri dekhi hui film hai and I am very happy ki ye film release ho rahi hai kyunki ye itni khoobsurat film hai ki iska na release hona mujhe bahut bahut dukh deta tha)," the 47-year-old said here Wednesday at the premiere of the film.

There are no villains in "English Vinglish". Only imperfect human beings like you and I, who make that common error of taking loved ones for granted.
Bollywood star Akshay Kumar has put one of his suits from the film "Oh My God" on auction for charity. The proceeds will go to Muktangan schools.
"Someone has rightly said, 'No one has ever become poor by giving'. And taking that thought forward, I'm auctioning one of my suits from 'Oh My God'," tweeted Akshay.
"The proceeds of this will go to Muktangan, who currently needs Rs.15 lakh to cover 60 percent of one of their pre-primary school's annual budget for the academic year 2012-2013. Come join me, spread the word and let's 'Fund the Change'," he added.
Filmmaker Prakash Jha, who is all set to come out with his film, "Chakravyuh", says that the song "Tata Birla Ambani aur Bata" is not meant to disrespect anyone. He has also added that they have voluntarily put a disclaimer in the song.
"We have taken the song 'Tata Birla' from the villages. This is their way of protest. When we think of the face of the industrialists, we think of Tatas and Birlas. We have no intention of disrespect. We have also put a disclaimer voluntarily," he said at the music launch of the film held Wednesday.
Actor Kunal Kemmu believes that the success of a film depends upon impressive storyline and not on the number of big names in the cast.
"Films are not about solo hero or multi-starrer. They are about stories. I don't think it is always a serious attempt from anybody's (actor or filmmaker) side to do a multi-starrer or solo," Kunal told IANS.
"Sometimes there is story of a couple, which becomes a love story, sometimes there are stories of an individual which becomes a biopic. In the same way, we have stories of families," he added.
