Union Information ministry will properly restore and preserve remaining films of Bengal`s biggest matinee idol, Uttam Kumar, promised Indian State Minister for Communications Gurudas Kamath .
It may be mentioned that in the meantime more than half of Uttam’s movies have already been destroyed over this long time. Nearly after three decades of his death the Central Communication ministry in India has published a commemorative stamp .
Commitments to preserve Uttam’s movie have been often made on such occasions but it has never been materialized. Film world thinks that less than 100 of his films are now available for preservation.
