Chak De! India goes to Oscar library

After scoring a huge success at the box-office, Shah Rukh Khan starrer Chak De! India has now become a part of the Oscar library.

A copy of the screenplay has reached the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts & Sciences , which hosts and hands out the Oscar Awards, to be a part of their script collection.

The film, written by Jaideep Sahni and directed by Shimit Amin, has impressed the critics and audience alike in India.

The invitation is recognition that the screenplay of Chak De! India is comparable with the best in the world, and will become an invaluable asset for future generations of filmmakers.

The scripts in the collection reside at the Margaret Herrick Library and are accessible for research purposes only. Film students, filmmakers, writers and actors are among the regular patrons of the institution.
