Patol Babu: Oh, yes, I had the time of my life……………..
Patol Babu’s wife: What dialogue did you get?
Patol Babu: I was surprised that I had only to say ‘Oh!’
Patol Babu’s wife: That is very strange.
Patol Babu: Yes it was surprising, just one word — no, not even a word, a sound — ‘Oh’.
Patol Babu’s wife: Then how did you act?
Patol Babu: I began giving the exclamation ‘Oh’ a different inflection each time I practised. Suddenly I felt I could write a whole thesis on the single word. I could make a mark with it. And to my surprise when my turn came I was able to act perfectly.
Patol Babu’s wife: How much did they pay you?
Patol Babu: Money at that moment did not matter, what mattered to me was that I could get to fulfil a lifelong dream to act in a film.
