For the first time in Bhojpuri film industry it happened that any Bhojpuri actor has been felicitated by Chhattisgarh Government. Bhojpuri actor Ravi Kissen was felicitated by the Chief Miinister of Chhattisgarh, Raman Singh, who used Bhojpuri language to address the actor and the people present in the function. The programme was held at Hotel Golden Tulip, Raipur where Ravi Kissen was felicitated for working in a Chhattisgarhi movie.
On Monday night, Ravi Kissen was felicitated with One Lakh Rs. and a symbol of respect by the CM in the presence of many officials including the Mayor Kiranmayi Nayak. Raman Singh said that Ravi Kissen has been the one responsible for promoting Bhojpuri nationally and internationally too. He expected that Ravi Kissen will play the same role for the Chhattisgarhi movies. On this occasion, Ravi Kissen got emotional and said that he is indebted to Bhojpuri for making him what he is. He also asked Raman Singh to think about giving subsidy to Chhatisgarhi Movies as that would be really encouraging. Raman Singh replied to him that this topic will be seriously considered. The whole unit of the movie “Dhurandar” including Sangeeta Tiwari and Brijesh Tripathi was also felicitated on this occasion.
