Said Sudhanshu Vats, Group CEO and MD, Viacom18: “Cinema is an integral part of our country’s cultural DNA and we owe it to our future generations to pass it on. This is the reason why we have continued to partner with the Film Heritage Foundation. This time we have extended our partnership to bring our message of preservation and training in this specialized field to the Telugu Film industry that has been an integral part of Indian cinema and has given the industry a galaxy of talented directors, actors and musicians not only on a regional level but also for the Indian film industry at large. Eminent film makers like Raghupati Venkaiah Naidu, H.M. Reddy, B.N. Reddy, Akkineni Nageswara Rao, L.V. Prasad, D. Ramanaidu, Ramoji Rao and N.T. Rama Rao et al were not just revered across the world as film personalities but also shaped the discourse of socio-political culture both within and outside of India. At Viacom18, we understand and believe it’s imperative that we preserve and restore the work done by these great personalities.”
