Another film has been honored with the request to place its script in the Academy of Motion Pictures library. The honor to be part of the prestigious Oscar library has been previously given to Devdas, Kal Ho Na Ho, Lagaan, Lage Raho Munnabhai, Namastey London and now Sarkar Raj joins the shelves.
Ram Gopal Verma said, “Yes, the academy got in touch with me and Sarkar Raj is going to the library. I am happy to receive this honor.” The film, which starred Amitabh Bachchan also starred Abhishek and wife Aishwarya and was the first time the two were seen on screen together after their marriage.
The script will be permanently housed in the library and available for students and other filmmakers for reference and study. The library has a huge collection of not only scripts but also books, photographs, periodicals and manuscripts as well as musical scores and recordings plus costume sketches, artifacts and oral histories.
