With veteran actors Saumitra Chatterjee and Mithun Chakrabarty agreeing to accept awards from the state government for their contribution to Bengali cinema , the Chief Minister’s efforts to move closer to artistes of Tollywood irrespective of their Marxist leanings seems to be bearing fruits.
The award-giving function is going to be held tomorrow at Science City auditorium.
While Chatterjee along with Sabitri Chatterjee and Supriya Devi are going to receive awards for lifetime achievement in films, Mithun becomes the first actor to receive the Mahanayak Uttam Kumar Sanman.
four will receive a cash prize of Rs 3 lakh each along with a medal and a citation. “I have received the invitation and I am going to attend the function,’’ Saumitra Chatterjee, recipient of Dada Saheb Phalke award this year, said.
On July 18, when Mamata had announced the awards, she said she wanted to bridge the gap between those who owe allegiance to her and those who have strong leanings towards Marxists. “One can follow a particular political ideology (among the film fraternity and artistes) but that does not mean that his or her contribution to the field of culture can be ignored,’’ said Mamata.
Since then feelers were sent to these artistes from Mamata’s office and her close quarters requesting them to attend the function.
Apart from the first two categories, prizes will be given in the special categories of acting, music direction, film direction, cinematography, art direction and story writing. In all, 41 people, which include such personalities like film maker Gautam Ghosh, music directors Rabindra Jain and Bappi Lahiri, will be given awards which will comprise, apart from a citation and medal, a cash prize of Rs 1 lakh.

Gagandeep puts SCR in semifinals
Gagandeep Singh’s 68th minute goal enabled South Central Railway (Secunderabad) secure a 1-0 victory over ICF in a lacklustre quarterfinal encounter of the IOB-Syed Ahmed Memorial hockey tournament on Thursday.
first half witnessed some careless play from both sides. Despite the railway team having the measure of its opponent, it rarely flexed its muscles.
One particularly eye-catching moment, among several poorly-directed passes, came midway through the first session.
Manjeet Kullu’s sally down the left flank was nicely trapped by M.G. Poonacha. However, the latter’s swift back-hander sailed over the goal. The game’s pace continued to sag in the second period as neither team looked like scoring a goal.
There was no dearth of penalty corners (South Central Railway had nine while ICF had three) but conversion was made difficult largely due to the efforts of the goalkeepers.
When a penalty corner came ICF’s way, Ashok Kumar’s strike was kept out by South Central Railway custodian Pfokrelo.
Udayakumar more than matched his counterpart’s efforts on a few occasions. South Central Railway came close to scoring through its sixth short corner but V. Ramesh brought out a goalline clearance.
The elusive goal finally came through Gagandeep (off a penalty corner) after he nudged home a deflection. ICF ‘keeper Udayakumar was adjudged man-of-the-match.
In another quarterfinal, Indian Bank upset Western Railway 4-1, via tie-breaker, after the score was tied at 2-2 at the end of regulation time.
V. Raja and Deepak scored for Indian Bank while Suresh Sana and Osaf Ur Rahaman scored for Western Railway in full-time.
In the tie-breaker, Mariya Stalin, Philip Martin, V. Raja, and Santhosh Kuamr scored for Indian Bank while Vinod Singh converted for Western Railway. Santosh Kumar of Indian Bank was declared man-of-the-match.
The results (quarterfinals):
South Central Railway (Secunderabad) 1 (Gagandeep Singh) bt ICF 0.
Indian Bank bt Western Railway 4-1, via tie-breaker (full-time: 2-2).
