Sandipan Chakraborty gave a very positive inaguration speech about the bright future and market of easten – india regional films in other cities and abroad. He mentioned that the turnovers of the regional films like Bengali, Bojpuri and Santhali Films are poor due to lack of proper networking and marketing. He confirmed that Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) has decided follow a 4-tier structure to promote these films – financing, developing infrastructure, marketing and sustaining competition. He also mentioned that CII is planning to release regional films simultaneously in multiple states and also promote regional music all over the world. He expressed his thoughts about co-producing films with Banglasesh as they have a huge Bengali population there.
