    Not all claims made by the article writer are authentic.. especially the one that Hindi film Industry is the oldest..

    Following the screening of the Lumièremoving pictures in London (1895), cinema became a sensation across Europe and by July 1896 the Lumière films had been in show in Bombay.[28] In the next year a film presentation by one Professor Stevenson featured a stage show at Calcutta's Star Theatre. With Stevenson's encouragement and camera Hiralal Sen, an Indian photographer, made a film of scenes from that show, namely The Flower of Persia(1898).[29] The Wrestlers (1899) by H. S. Bhatavdekar showing a wrestling match at the Hanging Gardens in Bombay was the first film ever to be shot by an Indian. It was also the first Indian documentary film.

    The first Indian film released in India wasShree Pundalik a silent film in Marathi byDadasaheb Torne on 18 May 1912 at 'Coronation Cinematograph', Bombay.[30][31]Some have argued that Pundalik does not deserve the honour of being called the first Indian film because it was a photographic recording of a popular Marathi play, and because the cameraman—a man named Johnson—was a British national and the film was processed in London

    Pay no mind to those who talk behind your back, it simply means that you are two steps ahead !!!
