The reputed Austrian Film Museum, which has so far only 15 Indian movies in its list, will have one more addition soon. It is Mani Ratnam's 'Raavanan', which has Vikram and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan in lead roles! It may be mentioned, the Hindi version of the film, 'Raavan', featured Abhishek Bachchan and Aishwarya Rai.
The library boasts of 25,500 films in its collection, which is considered a treasure trove for movie-buffs. Also, it is home to a library with more than 20,000 books and over 200 magazine titles covering a broad range of film related topics.
According to reports, the museum's director Alexander Horwath was stunned when he watched 'Raavanan' at an international film festival recently, and following this, he decided to have a copy of the movie at his workplace.
"It was a glorious evening," he was quoted as saying about watching 'Raavanan'. He reportedly added: "While reading more about the project, I was struck by Ratnam's approach of shifting around the traditional role of a hero and antagonist in the service of a commentary on present day India."
