    I want to thank Danish Iqbal, the maker of the Tibet film and also director Mahesh Bhatt who also joined in the production of movie, Majnukatilla. My thanks also goes to everyone who are involved to promote the cause of Tibetan freedom struggle which revolves around the love story between a Tibetan girl and an Indian college student, Imran Zahid from millionaire Indian family. Like in every Indian movie I wish and hope to see in keeping the real names of both girl and boy to make the story real. And finally, And I am also hoping to some kind formal blessing from His Holiness the Dalai Lama, the soul of Tibet, in the beginning of the movie. Last but least I wish to know when the above movie will be meventually released to the public in the theatres.
