Taking about the director Ram Kamal Mukherjee, he says, “ Ram Kamal is like a younger brother to me, I have been knowing him since long and now that he has turned director I am really happy for him. I have seen his last release Seasons Greeting’s: A Tribute To Rituparno Ghosh and I loved it”.
This fidelity and simplicity is being loved by audiences across the world, helping Rickshawala getting selected for the esteemed 11thDadasaheb Phalke Film Festival, aimed to recognize the enlightening, entertaining and progressive new age cinema of youth and experienced filmmakers.

He succeeded in capturing the essence, emotions and nuances of hand pulled rickshwalas in Kolkata in a subtle manner,I can vouch that Ram Kamal could not have decided on a better actor than Avinash. You could see his preparation for the role, he was perfect without overplaying it. He was in character especially since I am familiar with the role of the legendary Om Puri as Hasari Pal in City of Joy. Watching Avinash in Rickshawala was deja vu for me,”
