“It was shocking and difficult to accept the sad news of a jolly good fellow Ken Russell” said Sandeep Marwah President of Marwah Studios and Cultural Ambassador of Wales in India on the passing of renowned British Film Director.
It was not long ago when Sandeep Marwah was invited to Cardiff-Wales as a state guest by Wales Creative and Wales business where he was honored by the minister which was followed by a lavish and glamorous lunch hosted by Ken Russell in Marwah’s honour.
“Our long discussions and interaction on Cinema and exchange programs have already taken place in India. Ken Russell was quite keen in visiting India once again to promote India Wales relationship” Marwah added while talking to the press.
Ken Russell is best known for his Oscar winning film Women in Love (1969), The Devils (1971), The Who’s Tommy (1975), and the science fiction film Altered States (1980). Classical musicians and conductors held him in high regard for his story-driven biopics of various composers, most famously Elgar, Delius, Liszt, Mahler and Tchaikovsky
