The Indian movie industry completes 100 years this year.

As a part of centenary celebrations, four filmmakers – Karan Johar, Zoya Akhtar, Dibakar Banerjee and Anurag Kashyap – have come together to make “Bombay Talkies”.

Releasing May 3, “Bombay Talkies” unveils four different stories directed by the four directors respectively.

Big B is all praise for the younger generation of filmmakers and said: “I feel great about the new generation because I feel that they are very capable, doing a great job and all of them are moving in the right direction. They are hard working…they show so much talent that we have never seen.”
