People walk up to me and describe the fineness of this song, I feel escalated that it was my creation. The patriotic songs recorded over the years have always moved me and will still be close to my heart. I am a proud Indian and I feel India is a county of magic, I make the songs keeping in mind that the people are elevated with the patriotism in them. Even today when the kids hear patriotic songs, they get all fascinated about it. We are still the same people who get emotional about our country due to our dedicated patriotism and love for our country. I am really impressed by Cinetalkies as they have put across almost every topic in the discussions today and how it contributes to the welfare of the country. I feel extremely proud to be here today."

On gracing the event, Padmashree awardee, renowned writer, and CBFC chairman Prasoon Joshi said, "It is very important that the directors today come out of their disenchantment and create a world where a farmer's son can get a platform to showcase his story. Others wise all we shall witness is a story of farmers depicted in the films or to correctly put, a fancy-dress show. It is very important, who is making the film, and what background and dialogue they belong to. If similar movies are being made then only certain aspects of the issues targeted shall be focused on. It takes a lot of courage to direct a movie, I say, a guy with talent has to make a movie not someone who has the will to do it. An intervention from the government and renowned names like Subhash Ghai can make a difference and bring out the talent unseen and undiscovered still. The roads which are tough and filled with hindrances should be cleared for the talents like them, only then the talents will get a way forward to achieve their dreams. In India, we believe in the felt truth and if we take that ahead then the real depiction of the culture and traditions shall be shown along with the screenplay of the movie. To bring into light the Indian cultures and tradition the correct 'Sanskar' has to be given, no matter how he depicts it in the movie, it will automatically be conveyed to the audience. we should set the foundation right. I am very delighted to be a part of Cinetalkies, platforms like these are very much needed in today's generation to understand and make better content."
The event was a success in its own way as it witnessed the stories of the journeys, the celebration of cinema, and the 75years of Independence. Everyone who was present at the event had a beautiful smile by the end of the day stating the nostalgic experience they felt throughout.
