Rekha honoured at IMPPA Awards

Sep 29, 2008

Recently, the IMPPA (Indian Motion Pictures' Producers Association) Awards was held in Mumbai. Many dignitaries from the film fraternity attended the proceedings. But one who caught the attention of the press and attendees was the diva herself, Rekha. The actress made a rare public appearance to receive an award for her contribution to Bollywood. Her presence sent the paparazzi into a tizzy.

Accepting the award, the actress said that though she had received scores of awards in her 40-year career in movies, including the National Award, she considered the IMPPA award the most coveted as it was being given to her by her own fraternity.

"I always held my producers in high esteem and so I consider the IMPPA award as the most esteemed one I have ever received," remarked the veteran star.

The producers' body honoured Rekha for her "significant contributions to the film industry". IMPPA also honoured director Madhur Bhandarkar and veteran producers Prakash Mehra and Surinder Kapoor (father of Anil Kapoor).Bhushan Kumar of T. Series was given the Producer of the Year award. Kumar's latest movie, Karzzzz, is releasing next week.

Director Bimal Roy, the maker of memorable movies like Do Bigha Zameen, Madhumati and Bandini, was honoured posthumously.
