‘Khelein Hum Jee Jaan Sey’ heads to Oscar library
New Delhi: The screenplay of Ashutosh Gowariker`s latest historical drama ‘Khelein Hum Jee Jaan Sey’ will soon be part of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences archives.
The library has asked Gowariker for the screenplay of the movie for the permanent core collection which is made for film makers, writers, actors and students worldwide for their research work, said a press statement.
‘Khelein Hum Jee Jaan Sey’, presented by PVR Pictures and jointly produced by Ajay Bijli, Sanjeev Bijli and Sunita A Gowariker, featured Abhishek Bachchan and Deepika Padukone in lead roles.
The period movie, which failed to click at the Box Office, is based on journalist Manini Chatterjee`s book ‘Do & Die - The Chittagong Uprising 1930-34’, about the lesser known freedom struggle.
Earlier, the screenplays of films like ‘Rock On!!’, ‘Rajneeti’ and ‘Action Replayy’ have travelled to the Oscar library
