Tashkent: “I extend my gratitude to Late Shri Lal Bahadur Shastri the former Prime Minister of India, one of the most lovable man from Indian Politics. The visit to Tashkent would have been incomplete without visiting the Lal Bahadur Shastri Monument created here in Uzbekistan,” said Sandeep Marwah President of Marwah Studios on his interaction with press on the occasion of Tashkent International Film Festival 2021.
“I must congratulate the Government of Uzbekistan for reviving the festival as Tashkent Film Festival had been rated earlier as one of the most prestigious festivals of the World. A beautiful tag line -The Pearl of The Silk Road has been very well added to the show,” added Marwah.
Lal Bahadur Shastri promoted the Green Revolution in India in 1965, which led to an increase in food grain production in India. His famous quote Jai Jawan Jai Kisan raised the level of prestige of forces and farmers in very short period of time. His tenure as the Prime Minister was only for 19 months. He died in Tashkent on January 11, 1966.
