It was on Friday when the 68th National Film Awards were announced by the 10 member jury that was headed by filmmaker Vipul Shah.
As per the report, Vipul Amrutlal Shah had to go through a series of 60 films to reach out to any conclusion. He revealed that his entire team had to watch as many as 66 films in a short period of time.
Although, the team faced a huge challenge in watching films, it was finally done with pride. Vipul Amrutlal said his team has done a spectacular job in going through so many films at a time.
This is what he further said, “ Being the chairman of the national award jury was an honor. It was for the Covid affected year 2020, where-in most of the films could not go ahead with the shoot and release so I was skeptical that there may not be enough quality films, but to our surprise there were many amazing films and deliberating on those films was a great honor. We have done our best, with full honesty and commitment. Watching 66 films in a short span of time was challenging and the entire jury was completely committed to the task and they have done a great job so my congratulations to all of them.” he said.
On the work front, Vipul Amrutlal Shah looks keen to work for his upcoming Commando franchise to be released on the OTT platform.
The continuation of Commando franchise was recently announced after Human on Disney+ Hotstar. After that the filmmaker is all excited for the release of The Kerala Story.
