The 8th edition of Jagran Film Festival will honour Shabana Azmi

Monday, September 18, 2017 4:48:06 PM (IST) | Bollywood Trade Editorial


The 8th edition of Jagran Film Festival will honour Shabana Azmi during the closing ceremony of the Mumbai edition on 24th September in the presence of the Indian Film Fraternity.

Shabana Azmi began her career with a feature film ANKUR directed by Shyam Benegal which brought her in the national and international limelight as a powerful performer. Ever since Shabana never looked back and acted in some of the classics of Indian cinema like ANKUR, NISHANT, ARTH, SHATRANJ KE KHILADI, PAAR, KHANDAR and many others. 

Shabana is one of the icons of Parallel Cinema of the 1970. The actress is one of those few rare stars who have acted in the mainstream Cinema too with equal dexterity and grace. Her films AMAR AKBAR ANTHONY, PARVARISH, HIRA AUR PATHAR, SWARG NARAK and many other stand as shining examples of beauty and grace.

Commenting on the Award, the Festival’s Strategic Consultant, Manoj Srivastava said, “It’s a matter of pride for the Festival that such a great actor who hasn’t perhaps got her due as yet is being honored with the ‘Icons of Indian Cinema Award’. I feel this is a great day for the Festival.”

The Festival took off in Delhi before moving on with the journey to cities like Kanpur, Lucknow, Varanasi, Patna, Ranchi, Dehradoon, Bhopal, Indore, Meerut and many others. The journey shall culminate in Mumbai between 18-24th September 2017.
