A film celebrating 100 years of cinema, BOMBAY TALKIES will see a unique set of directors Karan Johar, Zoya Akhtar, Dibakar Banerjee and Anurag Kashyap coming together for the first time for a matchless venture. . The four directors will put together four short stories to make one, larger-than-life project. For Karan's story, he has got the rights to four recorded classics composed by the late Madan Mohan. Following in late Yash Chopra's footsteps, now Karan Johar gets the rights to late composer Madan Mohan's classics for his next; gets them free of cost.

A source close to the filmmaker reveals, ''Last time, late Yash Chopra had acquired the rights to the unrecorded songs by Madan Mohan for his film, VEER ZAARA (2004). And now, Karan has done the same and has got the rights to four hit classics by the late composer. The best part is that he got them free of cost.''

When asked why such an exception was made, the source says, ''Karan wanted rights to four songs, one of which is 'Ajeeb dastaan hain yeh' (which is also the title of Karan's part of the story in BOMBAY TALKIES) from the film DIL APNA AUR PREET PARAI, 1960. Saregama HMV, the label that owns the rights to the songs, gave them to Karan for free because the movie celebrates 100 years of cinema. It was a sweet gesture.''

The source adds, ''Music plays an important part of the film. Though the film will not have song-and-dance sequences, the music will be a played in the background. Karan won't be using the whole song in the film, just verses from them.''

BOMBAY TALKIES is set to release on May 3 which is also the day Indian cinema celebrates its hundredth anniversary.
