To celebrate the 100 years of Indian cinema, entire South film industries have organised a grand four day event in Chennai that was only partially successful. As Dada Saheb Falke made first film in India in 1913 with his ‘Raja Harishchandra’, the whole of Indian film industries celebrated it last year. However, actor Mohan Babu feels that there is no proper tribute paid by any celebrity or technician to celebrate 100 years event and he decided to do his part.
By including the journey of Telugu cinema, from the very first flick HM Reddy’s Bakta Prahlada released in 1930 to the present, Mohan Babu is now making a special documentary on 100 years of Indian cinema. His elder son Vishnu will be supervising this and he will be directing too if sources are to be belived. This special film speaks volumes about the evolution of Indian cinema, and South cinema in particular and pays respect to every single big and small celeb, technician responsible for the carving out of this million dollar entertainment industry in India.
Surprising part is that Mohan Babu is spending an whopping 6 crores to turn this documentary into the best ever thing made in India on film industries. What a fitting tribute this is!
