The Hindi daily Amar Ujala (April 23, 2012) carried a home page anchor story on Cutting the Chai making Raja Harishchandra 3D 99 years after its first screening. Ravi Buleiy’s story repeats much of what is mentioned in the Raja Harishchandra (1913) on India Public Domain Movie Project (and in 3D) post, but adds an important claim by Prashant Pathare, director of National Film Archives of India (NFAI).

Pathare says that Dadasaheb Phalke’s Raja Harishchandra (1913) is with the NFAI in its entirety and not only the first and the last of the four reels as we believed for so long. Surprisingly the NFAI websites states the contrary.
