India and Bangladesh may soon collaborate to jointly produce a ‘mega-film’ to commemorate the 1971 war of liberation. Minister for Information and Broadcasting Manish Tewari and his visiting Bangladeshi counterpart, Hasanul Haq Inu, decided to take forward such proposal at a meeting here on Thursday.

According to a statement issued by the I&B Ministry, Mr. Inu asked India to provide the names of Indian soldiers who laid down their lives during the Bangladeshi war as his government would like to recognise them. India played an active role in the war.

In the past few years, the Awami-League led government in Dhaka honoured Indian personalities active during the period.
