Dada Saheb Phalke awardee filmmaker Adoor Gopalakrishnan today interacted with scribes in Guwahati Press Club. Attending the Guest of the Month programme, Padma Vibhushan Gopalakrishnan argued that regional film industry deserves support from the government. He specially stated that Assam government should patronage the local film industry as it is facing crisis.

Mentioning about Assam and Kerala having lot of similarities including its green landscapes, abundant rains, growing vector-borne diseases and also the lifestyle of the habitants, Gopalakrishnan pointed out that both the States are geographically apart, but the people are emotionally very closed.

The noted film personality has scripted and directed eleven feature films in Malayalam and all of those creations had brought laurels to him and Indian film fraternity.

Gopalakrishnan earlier received Bishwaratna Dr. Bhupen Hazarika International Solidarity Award in a glittering function held in the city yesterday evening. Conferring the award on the internationally acclaimed director, Assam chief minister Tarun Gogoi termed Bhupen Hazarika a great humanist and a revolutionary.

“A cultural doyen, Bhupen Hazarika forged a synergy among all geographical territories in the country and brought about unity in the country,” said Gogoi adding that he witnessed ‘lot of similarities between Bhupen Hazarika and Adoor Gopalakrishnan’ as both them acted as bridge between Assam and Kerala, though both the Sates are geographically far off.
