Need to document Indian film history: Amitabh



Mumbai, Jan 29 (PTI) Megastar Amitabh Bachchan says it is about time that the history of Indian films is documented and restored.

The 74-year-old veteran took to his blog, where he wrote that it is a cause that needs our attention sooner than later.

“… Documentation and restoration of our film history through the years from its beginning… A most noble cause, and one that needs to be done most sincerely and urgently…” wrote Bachchan.

Calling “Deewar” one of the most finely written scripts, Big B also recounted discussing the idea of putting various aspects of his 1975 film into a print medium, with legendary scriptwriters Salim-Javed recently.

“Moments like these lend much to the documentation of history and the prevailing circumstances with all the right stories of the times, as a documentation of record. Posterity shall never forgive us if we did not do this,” Bachchan added.
