Anthology film Bombay Talkies, a tribute to 100 years of Indian cinema, has appealed to Shekhar Kapur so much that the internationally acclaimed filmmaker says that Bollywood should produce more such films.

"Watching Bombay Talkies, would love to see more of these. Directors expressing themselves without pressures of perceived box office," tweeted the 67-year-old.

The film brings on the screen four different stories put together by directors Zoya Akhtar, Karan Johar, Anurag Kashyap and Dibaker Banerjee.

It has already hit the domestic box office amid good reviews and now Bombay Talkies is set for gala screening at the prestigious Cannes International Film Festival that begins May 15.
