Preserve films, Kamal tells govtPublished: March 8, 2016
Kamal Haasan has placed a request to the government of India- that it should set up film archives to help students, researches and others to have ready access of movies for learning purpose.
The ‘Ulaga Nayagan’ said this at the closing ceremony of a workshop at National Film Archive of India (NFAI). He was the chief guest of the programme.
“Each state must have separate archive for 12,000 films, which PK Nair (former director of NFAI) preserved for film buffs and students,” said the actor-filmmaker.
Later, Kamal took to Twitter and wrote: “Thanks 2 P.K.Nair saab as a film buff. 12000 films for us is the wealth he leaves behind. His work will be continued by those he inspired.”
Kamal will soon start his next movie, in which he will share the screen space with his elder daughter Shruti Haasan.
