Cultural & Education Minister Shri Vinodji Tawade was present for this function.
Shri Vinodji Tawade said, “First of all I thank you all for inviting me for this function. Actually I get such invitations but I don’t go many times because I feel cultural minister should show his presence through his work instead of his presence on stage for giving awards. To make Prime Time shows available for Marathi films in Multiplex is the duty of Cultural Minister. I came here for two reasons. One is Dipali Tai once stand for election and one political body should stand behind another political body. And the other one last time when I was present with Hon. Chief Minister I made an announcement that Dadasaheb Phalke should written in Marathi So I came to see whether it is written in Marathi this year or not. As before every cinema National Anthem is played in every theater we are making one rule in near time that short documentary of Dadasaheb Phalke of 30 seconds should have been shown.”
