The latest news is that the Museum of Moving Image in New York, America, will pay its tribute to the Indian pride by organizing a special show of his three popular films Roja, Bombay, Dil Se on a big screen in 35mm format.

This special show , which was titled ‘Politics as Spectacle: The Film of Mani Ratnam’ will take place from July 21st to August 2nd. Sources say that Mani Ratnam will also take part in a Q & A Section. Richard Pena, the Director Emeritus of New York Film Festival and Professor of Film Studies at Columbia University said, “A New York tribute to this important filmmaker is long overdue.”
