Addressing a gathering, Minister for Information, Housing and Information Technology Katta Subrahmanya Naidu urged the State government and Karnataka Film Chamber of Commerce to conduct film awards distribution ceremony every year on the day of Ugadi festival.

Annual event

The event should be held annually henceforth in the interest of the film industry. The issue will be discussed with the Karnataka Film Chamber of Commerce and other organisations representing Kannada filmdom. Holiday should be declared for the industry on the day to facilitate the artistes to take part in the event,” he stated.
