Mumbai, Feb 11: The premiere of 'MH 26/11–Mumbai Under Attack', a docu-drama, was held on Tuesday February 10. It was attended by Bollywood celebrities, politicians, and various personalities from different walks of life.

    Francis Olivera, Please take time to step aside and re-evaluate your line of thought before negating the work of 'whoever may be concerned'. It is not the time to criticize but to allow those who wish to speak out to do so in whatever way they choose.

    Is this really a creative work of children or the publicity gimmick of School management.Did we really need a film on this traumatic experience of 26\11 that too from children?
