Rab NeBanadi Jodi's Oscar connection
t's time for YRF to start their celebrations as Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi has had a successful run at the BO since its release last week. And if that was not enough the news is that YRF has got a call from the Oscar library requesting them for the script of ‘Rab Ne...’ for its permanent collection.
News has it that it's basically the sensitivity of the screenplay and the unusual love story that attracted the attention of the Oscar library. For the uninitiated, the scripts in the collection are kept at the famous Margaret Herrick Library and are made accessible strictly for research purposes only. It's actually the students, filmmakers, writers and actors who can avail of the script. Not just that, the screenplays may only be viewed in the library since they do not get circulated and no screenplay is allowed to be photocopied.
Critics may not have given ‘Rab Ne...’ the much expected five star ratings, but being chosen for the Oscar library is an achievement in itself! SRK will surely agree to this!
