CUTTACK: Uttam Mohanty, the first mega star of Ollywood and pioneer of single-hero films, has been nominated for the fifth FitFat Bioscope Award 2008.
The superstar of preceding era would be presented with the award replicating a bioscope, which has been instituted by Home Video Entertainment and FitFat, along with a cash prize of Rs 25,000 at a special function at Kala Vikash Kendra on December 15.
As the tradition of the award ceremony evolved, the evening would involve a 90-minute screen and live show on the life and works of Uttam Mohanty.
A documentary on the films of the actor would also be screened, organiser Bapu Lenka said.
