Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Front Page - JI­GAR SHAH

Re­cently, it was re­ported that the Ge­orge East­man Mu­seum in New York (USA), which has the world’s old­est film ar­chives, now has the largest col­lec­tion of con­tem­po­rary In­dian cin­ema held by a mu­seum or film archive.

Now, we have been told that five of film­maker Ashutosh Gowariker’s movies – La­gaan (2001), Swades (2004), Jod­haa Akbar (2008), What’s Your Raashee? (2009) and Khelein Hum Jee Jaan Sey (2010) – have been cho­sen to be part of the col­lec­tion of films at the mu­seum. “Ashutosh re­ceived an email from the mu­seum, which men­tioned that five of his films will be added to the mu­seum’s col­lec­tion. The mail also stated that the of­fi­cials of the mu­seum loved Ashutosh’s work. He was really happy when he learnt about it,” says a source. While Ashutosh re­mained un­avail­able for a com­ment, Su­nita Gowariker, the pro­ducer of most of his films, con­firmed the news.
