The state government has instituted the Vishnuvardhan Life Time Achievement award to be given to those who have worked for the progress of the Kannada film industry, said Chief Minister B.S. Yeddyurappa

Yeddyurappa made this announcement on Sunday at the 2007-2008 state film awards function at Shimoga city. Yeddyurappa also said that another award for the best supporting actor will be instituted in the name of well-known film artist K.S. Aswath who died in January this year.

"I am happy to announce the addition of two special awards from next year in the name of legendary actor Dr. Vishnuvardhan and K.S. Aswath. We will also start building a memorial in the name of Dr. Vishnuvardhan. The construction work of the museum will start soon," said Yeddyurappa.He also said that the government was committed to helping the industry in making quality films.

The annual award instituted by the Karnataka state government is given in the name of another Kannada Movie icon Rajkumar.

Yeddyurappa also handed over the Life Time Achievement award to Parvathamma Rajkumar for her services to the Kannada film industry.
