One more from city joins national film awardees list

Anmol Bhave

The city has more to cheer about as one more Puneite has found a place among the 56th national film awardees. Anmol Bhave, a resident of Shiv Darshan area here, shares the best audiography award with Pramod Thomas for Marathi film Gandh.

With Bhave, the numberr of artistes from the city, who won the national film award, declared on Saturday, goes up to seven.

This is Bhave's second national award as three years ago, as an audiography student of the Film and Television Institute of India (FTII), he had bagged his first award for best audiography for a short film Closer.

Though only Thomas, who had done mixing for Gandh, was named as the best audiography award winner, Bhave will also share the award as he did the sound design for the film. Gandh's director Sachin Kundalkar confirmed that Anmol will be sharing the award with Thomas.

An ecstatic Anmol said, "I am particularly happy that a Marathi film has received an award in technical category like audiography. We had a tough chance with films like Rock On, Jodha Akbar and Mumbai Meri Jaan competing alongside. I am happy that we managed to clinch the award."

"Sound designing is an interesting field and I hope that this award will encourage the sound designers of Marathi films," said Anmol, who had also bagged the best sound designer award in Zee Gaurav Awards for the same film last year.
