The premier urged the concerned people to make films on the Liberation War alongside the local culture and other events, saying: “We are a brave nation. We had achieved victory in the Liberation War. The history of the victory, the history of the Liberation War, our spirit and our ideal must have reflections in our films,” she said.

She simultaneously said that her government would do whatever necessary for survival of the Bangladesh Film Industry, saying, “We will do whatever necessary for modernization of the film. Remember, I am always with you as the cinema industry was founded at the hands of my father. I am working to this end keeping that in mind.”
