It was indeed a moment of great privilege for Kalinka Charitable Trust and Uttarakhand Journalists Forum to have the pivotal presence of two important celebrities of their respective fields – one, an author and a politician of repute and another a empowered women who carved a niche for herself in the field of acting as a superstar and producer of several Garhwali films, particularly a super duper hit Subheru Gham.
Yes, I am referring here none other than the former Uttarakhand chief minister and MP Dr. Ramesh Pokhriyal Nishank, an author of several books and eminent parliamentarian as well who’d also made a recent foray in film production with his film Major Nirala likely to be released. Both these eminent personalities were chief guests on 13th January in a largely attended UTTARAYINI KAUTHIG held at Dwarka, New Delhi under the auspicies of KALINKA CHARITABLE TRUST where the singing legend and an iconic personality of Uttarakhand Garh Ratn Narendra Singh Negi and his efficient team of well studded musicians entertained thousands of his fan following.
The ocassion was special because on this very day of Uttarayini the producer, actor of eminence of Uttarakhand Film industry who’d also acted in several Bollywood and regional films like Bhojpuri, Nepalese, Punjabi and produced documentaries for Discovery channel etc was felicitated at the hands of the former Chief Minister, Uttarakhand and MP Dr. Ramesh Pokhariyal Nishank as well as the Garh Ratn Narendra Singh Negi with the PRIDE OF UTTARAKHAND AWARD for her valuable and precious contribution in producing quality regional films and playing a vital role in preserving the culture, dialects and traditions of the Himalayan State.
Her home production SUBHERU GHAM, WAS FOR THE FIRST TIME SCREENED IN CANADA’S INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL AND WAS AWARDED AS ONE OF THE OUTSTANDING REGIONAL FILMS’, the first ever internatiinal tecongnition accorded to any regional film of Uttarakhand. Kudos to her. Good luck Urmi Negi.
