CM’s Uttam salute for 46

Mamata Banerjee gave away lifetime achievement awards to Soumitra Chatterjee, Sabitri Chatterjee and Supriya Chowdhury at the state government’s first film awards at the Science City auditorium on Tuesday, the 32nd death anniversary of Uttam Kumar. Mithun Chakraborty got the first Mahanayak Samman, named after the Tolly legend.

“I would have been happy if Mrinal Sen had also been present here,” Soumitra said during his speech. Others on stage told him that Sen had been invited but could not attend because he was unwell.

The chief minister, who described the initiative as “a feeble attempt”, conferred special film awards on 42 others, including Aparna Sen, Madhabi Mukherjee, Haradhan Bandyopadhyay and Goutam Ghose. She also announced a Rs 5,000 monthly allowance for five ailing actors and technicians.
