"I know about such people, driven by the passion of life, the game of life. When Param, who is a fantastic actor, and a promising director broached the subject, It took just five minutes for me to give my word. Yes I am proud of Sebastian, the coach who I enact on screen," Proesnjit said.
"Prosenjit reminds of Aamir Khan in Lagaan in the sense both are actors of great calibre and perfectionist to the core. But Sebastian is poles apart from Bhuban and Lorai is more complex than Lagaan.
"Prosenjit is more director's actor than Aamir Khan, who thrusts his wishes during the making of a film. He follows the director's words forgoing his superstardom," actor Rudraneil Ghosh, said during the special screening of the film on Friday.
Lorai is a sports film, a beautifully made one, produced on a vast scale. And no it's not a political film," Parambrata's friend and popular director Raj Chakroborty, busy in post-production work of Abir Chatterjee-Rudrabeil-Srabonty starrer Kathmandu, said.
