Eight time National award winner director Jahnu Barua was conferred the first ever Bhupen Hazarika award to acknowledge his contribution to Indian cinema. The award, instituted in the memory of the late musical icon by Pune-based organization Sarhad, known for its work in border areas and conflict zones, was presented to the Assamese filmmaker at a ceremony last evening by former Assam Chief Minister Prafulla Kumar Mahanta.
An alumnus of the prestigious FTII here, Barua spoke about his days in city as a film student and how he managed to learn Marathi. "No one would have thought that an award made in the name of Bhupen Hazarika who hails from Assam be initiated by a Pune-based organization. With this, Sarhad proved that there would no longer be boundaries when it comes to art and culture," Sarhad president Sanjay Nahar said the award is an effort to enhance people-to-people contact and provide a boost to development in the northeast.
