Renowned filmmaker Shyam Benegal, who created his niche in film
faternity, with some wonderful films to his name, has been honoured with
the Dadasaheb Phalke Award. This award didn’t come as a surprise to
Benegal as he had been expecting it since a year now. But nevertheless, the
award has been a tribute to all his hard work all these years.
His first feature film Ankur in 1971, came as refreshing treat for movie
lovers who expected some sensible cinema. Benegal does not seem to stop
his directorial journey here. He feels that these awards give one an
encouragement that the show must go on.
Bose: The Forgotten Hero was the last film Benegal directed in
