What are your feelings after getting the Celebrating Life- Lifetime Achievement Award? 

I feel really happy winning this award. Of all the awards I have been honored with, this is truly one of those that really make me feel proud of myself.

Do you think that an award, as big as this, is really a measure of an artist's success?

I definitely believe that this award signifies an artist's work. This is because awards as prestigious as these acknowledge the best works and so the winner of the award I believe, really deserves the accolades. 

What do you presume, makes work of any artist truly eternal?

I think that if an artist's work can touch a general audience on an emotional level, the work and the artist will live forever among the audience. Our bodies will die one day but our work will live among the people.

What are your feelings after getting the Celebrating Life- Lifetime Achievement Award? 

I am extremely happy that I received this prestigious award. It has truly been an honor for me to serve this country with my cinematography and to receive an award of this magnitude truly makes everything worthwhile.

Do you think that an award, as big as this, is really a measure of an artist's success?

I definitely believe that an award of this magnitude certainly defines an artist's success. From my perspective, this award is nothing short of an international achievement. This award is the joint effort of two prestigious companies Standard Chartered Bank and The Daily Star, which is why I see this award as nothing short of an international accolade.

I believe if the work of an artist throughout his/her lifetime manages to reach the audience in a profound manner, the work will truly be eternal. The work will forever dwell among these audiences.
