Bikash Roy made the film "Ardhangini", based on a story by Panchu Gopal Mukhopadhyay. It was Roy's directorial debut. A few days before the film's release, he told Panchu Gopal that he was having sleepless nights. He was seeing in his nightmares that the viewers were breaking chairs and tearing up the screen at the auditorium as the film disappointed them. As it turned out, "Ardhangini" proved one of the most successful films of the year and Roy continued to direct a number of films thereafter.
On the occasion of the marriage of Panchu Gopal Mukhopadhyay, a booklet containing good wishes from friends, both prose pieces and poems, was published. The contributors included the notable writers of the day.The most prominent among them was Kazi Nazrul Islam. He wrote a poem titled "Dilli ka laddu".As the saying goes, those who eat "Dilli ka laddu" and those who don't are both ruined! Nazrul was obviously referring to marriage as an institution. Was he speaking from experience?
