I did not let my health affect me in any way - Buddhadeb Dasgupta

Buddhadeb Dasgupta's 'Tope' is going to release this week. The veteran filmmaker who fell sick during the period of the filmmaking says, "I did not let my health affect me in any way. I was admitted to the hospital four times for four-five days each.There, I saw children putting up a tough fight against serious ailments. On seeing them, I realized if they can, why can't I?" 'Tope' has been screened at Kolkata Film Festival at a packed theatre. "Such audience response inspires me to work and I am ready to start my next," said the 73-year-old director.
