Sanskruti Kaladarpan, which works towards social cause, have also instituted awards to all the three streams of entertainment, i.e. Cinema, Theatre, Television. Now, into their 15th year, they recently announced nominations in all categories, at a function held in Mumbai. The main two pillars and heads of Sanskruti Kaladarpan, Chandrakant Sandve and Archana Nevrekar, welcomed and thanked the jury members of TV, Cinema and Theatre panels.
In fact the organisers were of the opinion that no awards function should be organised from next year onwards, due to problems relating to dates, theatre timings, availability of films on time, etc. Such issues prevailed till the last minute; but a lot of film fraternity members sorted out the problems, to make this year’s ‘Mahotsav’ of Dramas and film, a grand success. They thanked all the viewers, who supported with ‘House Full’ boards. Incidentally, the plays including Kalat Nakalt, Samudra, Goshta Tashi Gamtichi and films including Elizabeth Ekadashi, Ticha Umbartha, Rama Madhav were part of the ‘Mahotsav’.
