The Hiru Golden Film Awards organized to international standards will begin shortly at the Sugathadasa Indoor Stadium with the participation of a galaxy of Bollywood and local superstars.
The Hiru Golden Film Awards will be the largest local cinema awards ceremony that would leave a golden note in the history of Sri Lankan cinema.
Several Bollywood superstars including Bipasha Basu, Neha Dupia, Anil Kapoor, Sunil Shetti and Vivek Oberoi have joined this historic cinematic experience.
In addition, super vocalist Alka Yagnik who thrilled the hearts of Bollywood fans also joined her fellow film stars to colour the event.
Many Sri Lankan cinema artistes have been arriving in the Sugathadasa Indoor Stadium at this moment.
The organizers of the Hiru Golden Film Awards have rolled out a golden carpet for the Bollywood superstars on their arrival to the venue.
Hiru Golden Film Awards, the first of its kind, will award films that were screened in 2012 and 2013 and another 100 short films produced during the same period.
Hiru Golden Film Award is held at a time where there is a large vacuum in the local film industry.
Sri Lankan film industry which began 67 years ago has passed its golden era where film personnel were appreciated.
But no quality productions were screened afterward thereby making it one of the causes to collapse the industry.
In order to fill the vacuum, Hiru Golden Film Award, which was organized according to a concept by Asia Broadcasting Corporation Chairman Rayynor Silva, will take revolutionary profile in the local cinema industry.
At the same time, 16 years ago, the local radio industry was also given new perspective following a concept given by Asia Broadcasting Corporation Chairman Rayynor Silva.
As a result, a family of radio channels such as Hiru FM, Sha FM, Sun FM, Gold FM and Sooriyan FM were introduced.
Leading in the arena, Asia Broadcasting Corporation later introduced its first Television channel Hiru TV which has already left its musing in the hearts of its viewers.
Expressing his views about the Hiru Golden Film Award, ABC network Chairman Rayynor Silva said that he is taking the way through Hiru Golden Film Award to elevate the Sri Lankan cinema to new levels.
State of the art technology and most modern lighting systems never used in a Sri Lankan awards ceremony will be used to provide lighting for Hiru Golden Film Awards.
In addition, the most sophisticated sound control system and most advanced camera system in the country will be used to cover this spectacular event leaving a lasting memory of the ceremony.
Several Bollywood superstars who arrived in the island attended a press conference held in Colombo this morning.
