Mumbai [India], May 10 (ANI): Veteran actor Amitabh Bachchan believes that Indian cinema lacks behind when it comes to preserving materials related to filmmaking.
"It is the factor of documentation that attracts me... And I reiterate again and again... There is complete absence of any kind of documentation, existing in the largest film industry of the world," Amitabh wrote on his blog.
"And when effort is made, it needs to be encouraged - not because it is conditioned to my visuals, but should be there for the entire industry, their achievements and contribution to this immense work force; their ideas and thoughts and commendations," he added.
Amitabh, who can currently be seen onscreen in '102 Not Out', hopes that "someday" there will be an effort made by somebody to preserve the history of Indian cinema. (ANI)
