Directors Cheran, Ameer, and SP Jananadhan were seen at an event called Cinema Today. A book called Film Katiyavargal was released. The entire place was decorated with posters from the black and white era of MGR and Shivaji to create a nostalgic effect and to recapture the magic of a bygone era.
The three directors loved the idea and said that more effort should go towards preserving film memorablia the way they do in Hollywood. They requested the Tamil Nadu government to start an organization that would devote itself towards the cause of collecting and safely preserving the film equipment used over the years and the ones that are currently in use. They said that it could easily develop into a business worth 100 crores. It is indeed a fabulous idea!
