For the information of our readers, Bhojpuri cinema started way back in 1962, when many films were highly appreciated. Following the initial hysteria, Bhojpuri cinema saw its several ups and downs. 2005 was a landmark year for the Bhojpuri Film Industry when Vinod Gupta’s efforts saw the inception of the ‘Bhojpuri Film Awards’ to honour the filmmakers. Legendary Bollywood icon Shri Dilip Kumar inaugurated the awards that year with lighting the lamp of the inauguration ceremony and this precedence is being carried out successfully with the Bhojpuri Awards being organized without any interruption till date. It was during those times that the Bollywood superstar Govinda championed the cause by being an ambassador of the Bhojpuri Film Awards.
