A few years back Zee Marathi’s prestigious award ‘Zee Gaurav’ got split into ‘Zee Chitra Gaurav’ & Zee Natya Gaurav’. Hence we are now enjoying exclusive celebrations of Marathi Cinema & Marathi Theatre respectively.
This year’s Zee Chitra Gaurav truly celebrated & honored the best of Marathi Cinema. Sairat as expectedly got the most awards in total 8, but unlike other awards Zee Natya Gaurav also honoured other great works of the year. Pushkar Shrotri’s upcoming production ‘Ubuntu’, Sunil Sukthankar-Sumitra Bhave directorial ‘Kaasav’ & Samit Kakkad’s ‘Half Ticket’ also won major awards.
Artists like Prajakta Mali, Shruti Marathe, Vaibhav Tatwawadi, Rasika Sunil, Sonali Kulkarni, Prarthana Behere & Vaidehi Parshurami performed on the prestigious Zee Gaurav stage! Alongside them Abhinay Berde gave a tribute to his father & our beloved superstar Laxmikant Berde. Lakshya’s heroines Varsha Usgaonkar, Kishori Shahane, Kishori Ambiye & Nivedita Saraf. Veteran filmmaker & actor Mahesh Kothare also joined Abhinay in this special tribute to ‘Lakshya’.
Last but not the least the most memorable moment of the evening was when the lifetime achievement award was given to senior Marathi-Hindi actress Seema Deo. Another living legend of Marathi Cinema gave this prestigious award to Seema Dev. Seema Dev has worked in unforgettable films like ‘Jagachya Pathivar’, ‘Pathlag’, ‘Anand’ & many more in the period of more than 4 decades.
