Renowned Indian director Shyam Benegal expressed disappointment over the social media outrage regarding the trailer of the much-hyped film "Mujib: The Making of a Nation".

The director told Telegraph India that he finds it really difficult to comprehend how the Bangladeshi audience would be this upset with the trailer.

He further stressed that one cannot judge an entire film based on a 90-second trailer. They can comment on the trailer but it's ridiculous to comment to pass comments on the whole film.

The director of "Mujib: The Making of a Nation" also addressed the casting of key characters in the film. He stated that he took Bangladeshi actors as they have more intimate ideas about the ideologies of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman and that he is truly 'baffled' by all the 'negative reaction' regarding the portrayal of Bangabandhu in the film.

The trailer of "Mujib: The Making of a Nation" was unveiled in the Marché du Film Commercial Branch at the Indian pavilion of the Cannes Film Festival on May 19.  Most of the users have called out the film for its poor VFX effect and lack of attention to detail.
