The award will be presented on October 13, on the occasion of Kishor Kumar's death anniversary, Additional Collector, SS Baghel said. While the Chashme Buddoor director will personally receive the award in Madhya Pradesh, Dilip Kumar will be given this award at his Mumbai residence
The inimitable Sai Paranjpye, who now lives a secluded life, remembers her Chashme Buddoor actor Farooq Sheikh as a sweet wonderful person who wouldn't even mind flirting with her.
The new Chashme Baddoor made Rs 4.75 crore all over India, while the old one has hardly any shows in terms of volume.
