The documentary focuses on the university’s extensive history; from its establishment in 1917 thanks to Nizam VII, Mir Osman Ali Khan; the growth of various departments over the years and the alumni settled across the world; to other crucial milestones.
Vice-chancellor Ramachandram said Osmania University has rolled out thousands of students over the years and some occupy top positions in India and abroad. “We will present the University’s entire history in the film” he said.
Mr Suresh, the documentary’s director, said the Osmania University was an inspiration.
