An Introduction to the special tribute to Hrishikesh Mukherjee by Kavita Chhibber

I cannot thank enough the many people who have helped me in making this webcast a dream project. From Swati Mukherjee, Hrishi da’s daughter in law, his son Pratip and daughter Jayasree, who not only trusted me with this project but gave me access to whatever I needed to make this a reality. Ravi Gupta, CEO of Mukta Arts, Rajeev Pandya who worked with Hrishi da, actor Faroukh Shaikh, and writer Sachin Bhaumick who provided a lot of phone numbers and were a great help. Thanks also to Jaya and Amitabh Bachchan who took my call late at night, ( Amit ji had just returned from a shoot) and shared their thoughts warmly and Amol Palekar who also very graciously took the time to speak from Pune very promptly.
