Vidya Balan’s ‘biggest fan’ is Moushumi Chatterjee!

Coincidentally, a night after the prestigious Oscars, the glittering 2018 edition of Power Brands-Bollywood Film Journalists’ Awards event, organised by Planman was held in the city. Started with the clear ambition of being the desi version of Oscars, this is India's only film awards decided on the basis of the Open On-Line (transparent) Ballot Voting that too by a galaxy of mostly veteran film journalists.

Cardinal credit goes to Arindam Chaudhuri, the innovative genius behind Planman who was supported by and by the entertainment media fraternity. The evening started with a beautiful audio-visual tribute to ‘late’ Sridevi who was the associate winner of the best actress award for her stellar performance in ‘Mom’.

The Best Actress award winner Vidya Balan as well as the Best Actor award winner Rajkumar Rao were personally present. Also taking away special Power Brands Awards for furthering the cause of cinema were Raveena Tandon and her (film producer-distributor) suave husband, Anil Thadani. Other award-winners included Kay Kay Menon, Anu Kapoor, Sonali Kulkarni, Sachin Khedekar, author Ram Kamal Mukherjee, Komal Nahta, Subi Samuel and Mayank Shekhar.

The “genuine”  ‘life time achievement’  award was given to veteran yet young-at-heart outspoken Moushumi (‘Piku’) Chatterjee, who declared that she is “the biggest fan of Vidya Balan”. This spontaneous compliment overwhelmed Vidya, who in her acceptance speech also stated that the Powerbrand Award for her performance in ‘Tumhari Sulu’ was ‘very special to her and to her film producer Tanuj Garg’, who was also present at the event.

Incidentally, this event brought ‘together’ lead heroines Moushumi  from the Bengali movie Parineeta (1969) and Vidya from the Hindi movie Parineeta (2005).
