Producer Vidhu Vinod Chopra is all set to start one more division under his banner. The new division, which is yet to be named, will be working towards making a bank of classic films in the form of detailed books.

The books will be made available in the market and the first film to be catalogued will be Chopra's recent blockbuster 3 Idiots.

A source from the production house said, “The endeavour of this division is to catalogue the minutest details of a script.

The book will include the screenplay, deleted scenes, character sketches, reworked scenes, casting process and everything that went into making the particular film.

Vidhu is not looking at this division as a profit making venture but as an archive. Only the filmmakers and those who are closely associated with the film are privy to all the details of their films.

Vidhu's intention is to document all the facts and make it available to students and also to cinema lovers. The division will first start with 3 Idiots and then the Munnabhai series.

But after that, Vidhu wants to work on creating books for classics such as Mother India and also the Guru Dutt films. The requisite permissions are being worked out and by the end of this year the first of these books will be available.”

A special team has been hired to ensure that all the necessary things are included in the books. “The team will also source out rare pictures from the filmmakers or those associated with the films. This new division will try and include candid and on-the-sets photographs as well,” added the source.

Vidhu Vinod Chopra confirmed the news and said, “Yes, I wish to catalogue screenplays of classics.”
