Actor Pawan Kalyan and filmmaker Trivikram on Wednesday announced they will facilitate the release of 12 handpicked moviesof veteran filmmaker K. Vishwanath as a limited edition disc in honour of his Dada Saheb Phalke Award.
Pawan Kalyan and Trivikram met and congratulated Viswanath for being conferred country’s highest award in cinema.
“Really happy for Viswanath sir. It’s a proud moment for every south Indian. Even though I don’t have the experience or stature to comment about him, I can’t find any other way to express my happiness for him,” Pawan Kalyan told reporters here.
He said it was through Viswanath’s films he understood and appreciated classical music.
“As a kid, I listened to a lot of western music. My whole perception about classical music, especially carnatic music changed completely after watching Sankarabharanam’. I lost track of the numbers of times I have watched that film,” he said.
Trivikram said his respect for awards grew after this honour for Viswanath.
