Subhash Ghai submits his directorial films to National Film Archive of India
The legendary film maker Subhash Ghai has taken numerous initiatives to keep the Indian film and literature culture alive in many ways. Be it attending seminars to hosting delegation meetings to opening up a film institute, Subhash Ghai has now graced the Closing Ceremony of The Festival of National Award films organised by the National Film Archive of India in Pune.
The veteran filmmaker who has won national awards for his films IQBAL and KARMA from the president of India has had a 50 years journey from his FTII days to the National archives where he submitted his directorial films.
Says the filmmaker, “I feel elated to have been invited by National Film Archive of India as the chief guest for the closing ceremony of The Festival of National Award Films. Being the chief guest I officially entrusted my films to them for archiving in national treasure. They have chosen 25 films produced and directed by me under Mukta Arts LTD and I am honoured to have submitted them to their archive on the same premise where I was a student of cinema in 1956 for two years. I am blessed and thankful.”
