It’s true Priyanka will be receiving an award in the new category of Internationally Acclaimed Actress, but Ashok Shekar claiming himself as chairman of the DadasahebPhalke Academy is not true in any manner, Ashok is just a conveyor of the event.”, says Ganesh Jain, Chairman of DadasahebPhalke Academy and Awarn Committee.
DadasahebPhalke Academy Awards will be held on 1st of June this year at Bhaidas Hall, Vile Parle, Mumbai.
