The coveted black statuette

As  a pleasant surprise the highly aspirational black lady is coming to Kolkata to cast her lethal charm on the film industry of East- Bengali, Odia and Assamese to be precise. Yes, it's common knowledge for everyone now: to honour the Bengali film industry and its popular cousins, Filmfare Awards is opening its East edition this year. It distinctively marks the next level the Bengali film industry has been able to reach, thanks to the new wave cinema, especially since 2010 (the year Autograph released).

All eyes will be on Science City auditorium this evening as the award ceremony takes place. The awardees are going to make history. Would love it if some capable actors who are not yet stars, and a film (or two) which didn't get its due make it. Looking forward to the winners list in tomorrow's Times of India.
