Chennai:Â Film buffs can now get to see rare photographs of superstars who reigned supreme from 1930s to 1970sÂ thanks to anÂ exhibition organised by the Anna University at itsÂ Chennai campus to celebrate the 100 years of Indian Cinema.
âWe sourced all the photographs from AVM studious,â revealedÂ J, Divya, a third year visual communication student of the Ethiraj College for Women, whch has joined hands with the university to hold the exhibition.
âThe main aim was to highlight the importance of film studious. Some of the big studious like Jupiter Pictures providedÂ a platformÂ for leaders like C.N. Annadurai, M. Karunanidhi, and M.G.R,â said Robin Babu, a student of the Department of Media Sciences.
â WeÂ are calling the exhibition a flashback and have made an effort to portray all stalwarts of the industry,â said Dr Chitra Venkatachalam, dean of students, Ethiraj College for Women.Â
Prototypes of all old cameras used some five decades ago are also on display at the exhibition. A shadow puppet show at the venue is an added attraction. The exhibition will remain openÂ to the public until DecemberÂ 21.Â...
