HYDERABAD: Eminent filmmaker K. Balachander, who has written, directed and produced over 100 films has been chosen to be the recipient of the Akkineni Nageswara Rao Award for Lifetime Achievement for the year 2010.

This was announced at a press conference here on Tuesday by the thespian and Dada Saheb Phalke awardee Mr. Nageswara Rao and Chairman of the Akkineni International Foundation, T. Subbarami Reddy. The award would be given away at a function later.

Earlier awardees since it was instituted in the year 2002 include Dev Anand, Shabana Azmi (2006), Anjali Devi (2007), Vyjayanthimala Bali (2008) and Lata Mangeshkar (2009). The award comes with a memento, citation and a cash prize of Rs. 3 lakh. Mr. Nageswara Rao said Mr. Balachander did a creditable job in the small screen too, as much as he had contributed to the big screen. His first television serial ‘Rail Sneham' telecast on Doordarshan in 1990 was still remembered as a trendsetter.
