Indian film industry honours stars of yesteryears
Mumbai, May 5 (ANI): Indian film industry remembered the invaluable contribution of stars and filmmakers of yesteryears.
The Dada Saheb Phalke Academy in Mumbai gave away lifetime achievement awards to the artists who were legends of their times.
Veteran Bollywood actor Manoj Kumar was among those honoured with the prestigious cine award last evening.
"I am feeling very happy. It feels very nice when the film fraternity appreciates and supports you," said Kumar.
Bollywood director Ashutosh Gowariker was also presented the award for his epic film 'Jodhaa Akbar'.
"One of the main factor for this award is that it really respects all technicians. All those crew members who have not got recognition. When we get an award, I think it's triumph for the entire team. Because from the exterior you can see that only director makes the movie or actor and actress make it. There are many more people who make the film. I think the academy appreciates that aspect," said Gowariker.
Veteran Bollywood producer Surinder Kapoor was also conferred with the award in the presence of his sons - Bollywood actor Sanjay Kapoor, director Boney Kapoor and daughter in-law Sridevi.
Veteran singer Shamshad Begum and famous Gujarati producer Vipin Reshammiya were also conferred with the award.
The event coincided with the 140th birth anniversary of Phalke. (ANI)
