IFFI - 2012 pays tribute to Father of Indian Cinema Dada Saheb Phalke


Mumbai: November 21,2012

Indian Cenema is not only song and dance, it is much more .. there is lot of sacrifice people have made, a lot of dedication is involved, said the noted Director M.S. Sathyu, popularly known for his masterpiece ‘Garam Hawa’. He was interacting with media persons here on the sidelines of IFFI 2012 and informed that a theatre piece will open 100 years of Indian Cinema at Kala Academy. An onstage dialogue between Dada Saheb Phalke and his wife Saraswati which is designed by Shri. Sathyu , written by great grand niece of Dada Saheb Phalke, Ms. Sharayu Phalke Samanwar and directed by Mahammad Ali Baig is being presented this evening at 43rd IFFI as part of tribute to father of India films.

Ms. Lillette Dubey who will be playing Dada Saheb Phalke’ second wife Saraswati was also present alongwith Mr. Mahammad Ali Baig who will play Dada Saheb Phalke’s character at the press conference. Theatre production in the country’s most prestigious film festival is certainly a compliment, said Ms. Dubey adding that this is not a performance or enacting a character but a dramatise reading to convey the facts and feeling.

The Production has complete black and white theme on stage to create the magic of silent film era, when films were made in black and white format starting from Raja Harishchandra in 1913.
