Director, producer and screenplay writer Subhash Ghai announced to give negatives of 23 of his films to the National Film Archive of India (NFAI) for preservation. He announced this during the closing ceremony of the three-day Festival of National Award Winning Films at NFAI. Ghai said that a film has life of only one or two years in the market after its production, but film archive prolongs it to more than 100 years. “It would be an honour and privilege for me to get my films into NFAI, which would ensure its availability for research purposes,” he said.
