The producer will receive the honour at the CineAsia Awards 2023 in Bangkok on Thursday, a press release said.

"Over the years, Siddharth Roy Kapur has advocated for a robust copyright and content protection framework to support the interests of filmmakers, and encouraged the introduction of legislation to modernize film classification and better protect IP rights. These efforts have contributed to positive momentum towards the enactment of India’s new Cinematograph (Amendment) Bill. The award is timely and well-deserved," said Belinda Lui, the MPA’s President and Managing Director Asia-Pacific.

Kapur, the former president of the Producers Guild of India (PGI), said he is humbled by the honour extended to him by the Motion Picture Association (MPA).

"This recognition is testament to the dedication of innumerable members of our film industry who continuously strive not only to create and innovate in the present, but also to protect and safeguard our cherished cinematic legacy and heritage," he added.
