The 65th edition of the National Filmfare Awards will be held at Rajib Gandhi Indoor Stadium, Amingaon in February, 2020. This is the very first time ever that the Filmfare ceremony event will be held out of Mumbai.
The Assam Tourism Development Corporation (ATDC) will sign a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with The Times of India Group, the organizer of the filmfare awards ceremony on November 25.
The Filmfare Awards are a set of awards that honour artistic and technical excellence in the Hindi-language film industry of India. The Filmfare ceremony is one of the most prestigious film events in the world. The awards were first introduced by The Times Group in 1954, the same year as the National Film Awards.
According to ATDC Chairman Jayanta Malla Barua the sole purpose of holding the Filmfare Awards function in Guwahati is to promote Assam’s huge tourism potential by involving Bollywood. He said since the State will give all logistics to the organizer, the event will highlight Assam as one of the best tourism destinations in India.
