PADMA AWARDS ANNOUNCED: PYARELAL SHARMA BESTOWED PADMABHUSHAN

MCAI - 29 Jan 2024

Veteran actors Vyjayanthimala Bali and Chiranjeevi will be honoured with the Padma Vibhushan. Their names are among the five announced for the Republic Day honours.

Celebrated music director Pyarelal Sharma, actor Mithun Chakraborty and singer Ushu Uthup will be given the Padma Bhushan. Actor-director Raj Dutt will also be conferred with the Padma Bhushan. Tamil film actor Vijaykanth will be honoured posthumously with the award.

West Bengal composer Ratan Kahar has also been honoured with the Padma Bhushan. Although he is not a film music director, his composition, Genda phool, was recreated by Badshah for Sony Music. Badshah’s song and the video featuring Jacqueline Fernandez, is extremely popular. However, Sony did not reportedly pay anything to Ratan Kahar. What’s equally shocking is that Kahar was not even given credit for the original composition.

These Awards are conferred by the President of India at ceremonial functions which are held at Rashtrapati Bhawan usually around March / April every year. For the year 2024, the President has approved conferment of 132 Padma Awards including 2 duo cases (in a duo case, the Award is counted as one) as per list below. The list comprises 5 Padma Vibhushan, 17 Padma Bhushan and 110 Padma Shri Awards. 30 of the awardees are women and the list also includes 8 persons from the category of Foreigners / NRI / PIO / OCI and 9 Posthumous awardees.
