The Romantics to be part of FTII curriculum; to be screened for Harvard students

The streaming documentary series The Romantics, which is a tribute to the legacy of late director-producer Yash Chopra, will be screened for the students of Harvard University. Additionally, the Film Television Institute of India (FTII) Pune, has decided to make The Romantics part of their curriculum.

Smriti Mundhra, the Oscar and Emmy-nominated filmmaker, who has directed the docu-series said: "As a former film student, I studied the work of auteurs from all over the world. It always bothered me that my peers and I weren't taught about the great filmmakers of Indian cinema."

She further said: "The Romantics is my attempt to shed light on the craft, journey, and global impact of one of our most revered directors, Yash Chopra, and the generation of filmmakers and moviegoers he influenced."

The Romantics also showcases Yash Chopra's production house YRF and their cultural impact on India and Indians for the past 50 years.

Smriti added: "I'm so pleased to join two of the top-most institutes of the world - Harvard and FTII - for a screening and robust discussion of The Romantics with students and put Yash Chopra in his rightful place as one of the world's great auteurs.'

The Romantics is streaming on Netflix.
