The National Film Award function was noticed for the current year for all the wrong reasons, as all Malayali victors aside from artist Dr. K J Yesudas and executive Jayaraj chose not to acknowledge the honors from Union pastor Smriti Irani. The request of the honor champs was that they need to get it from the President of India, which has dependably been the convention. In any case, it was clarified by the administration that lone 11 honors will be given by the President of India.
Despite the fact that there were endeavors to placate the victors, they all challenged in one voice. Dr. K J Yesudas and chief Jayaraj marked the challenge letter that was given over to the Union government, yet later they changed their plans. The online networking has entire heartedly bolstered the striking choice of the National honor champs and there is serious feedback pouring against Yesudas and Jayaraj in the web-based social networking stages.
Movie producers asked for that the President “in any event posture for a photograph with every one of them.” In a letter routed to the Directorate of Film Festivals, they said “producers and artistes put in all that we have and diligently adhere to our fantasies in a field of work where gratefulness does not come effectively. We are debilitated to realize that we will be denied of the respect of this energy about a unique snapshot of pride and brilliance that the National Film Awards had guaranteed us.”
Rastrapati Bhavan authorities said it was convention of the President to not spend over a hour at any honors capacity and this was passed on to the service.
Authorities said the service was educated in regards to the President’s program right around three weeks back. It is however not clear why the service did not advise the honor beneficiaries well ahead of time about it. It is learnt that they became more acquainted with that the victors would be given honors by the pastor, not the president, just a day prior to the real occasion amid the practice which added to their mistake.
A senior authority, in any case, said president Pranab Mukherjee used to remain for the whole honor service regularly going past 60 minutes. “Since the date May 3 is settled each year, it is infact less demanding.”
