Rajkumar Hirani, one of the leading contemporary Indian filmmakers, presented PK’s original negative yesterday to be added to the National Film Archives of India collection.
“It is the duty of a filmmaker to ensure that the original negatives of his films are preserved for posterity and for the entertainment and study of future generations of cinematographers and scholars. I appeal to all filmmakers to support NFAI in this important endeavour,” said Mr. Hirani, an alumnus of the Film and Television Institute of India (FTII), Pune.
Starring Aamir Khan, the film was a popular satire which was received by the audience and critics alike. Apart from this, Hirani also handed over around 300 boxes which included the opening rush of the film and outtakes of his other hugely popular film of 2009. 3 Idiots To the Director, NFAI Prakash Magdum.
“The Significance of the Acquisition of Negative O”f pk (2014) is that it is one of the last films to be shot on celluloid. Mr Hirani generously gave us a large number of posters, lobby cards and also pictures of films which are part of his work,” Mr Magadum said.
Directed by Mr Hirani, PK, in which Aamir Khan played the quirky titular role of a humanoid alien, broke all box office records.
“The film is a wonderful, unique take on superstition and other vulnerabilities of contemporary Indian society and hence we were expecting to receive negatives despite being a fairly recent film. Mr Hirani, who is known for his light-hearted but sharp stance on social issues, co-produced it with Vidhu Vinod Chopra. Moreover, since the transition from celluloid to digital in terms of film making in India occurred during 2013-14, it was even more important to preserve this film,” Mr Magadum said.
Hirani’s earlier films, such as Munnabhai MBBS (2003) Carry on Munna Bhai (2006), and 3 Idiots (2009) are a part of the negatives already conserved in NFAI.
