It is not the first time it has happened for Yash Raj Films, but it has certainly happened the fastest.
Barely a day had gone by post the release of Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi that the Oscar library had made a request for the script for its permanent collection.
The sensitivity of the screenplay and the unusual love story attracted the attention of the staff at the library right away.
The scripts in the collection reside at the Margaret Herrick Library and are made accessible for research purposes only; students, filmmakers, writers and actors are among the regular patrons.
Screenplays may only be viewed in the library; they do not circulate. Also, no screenplay is allowed to be photocopied.
