Rajinikanth is getting the award Dadasaheb Phalke. Union Minister Prakash Javadekar wrote on his net, “The 2019 Dadasaheb Phalke Award is being given to Rajinikanth, one of the best artists in the history of Indian cinema.” The Union Minister also commented on the honor for his contribution as an actor, producer and screenwriter.
The 2019 Dadasaheb Phalke Award was supposed to be announced last year. But that didn’t happen last year because of Kovid. This year, therefore, the 2019 award was announced.
According to the Union Minister’s announcement on the net, the jury that has selected Rajinikanth for the award this time includes Asha Bhosle, Subhash Ghai, Shankar Mahadevan and Biswajit Chatterjee.
Rajinikanth made his acting debut in the 1975 Tamil film Apurba Ragangal. Rajinikanth, who has been in the film industry for almost 45 years, has decided to form his own political party. But due to illness he later withdrew from that decision.
