PTC Punjabi Film Awards, Celebrating Punjabi Cinema in a “World’s First” style
Amid the dark clouds of the Corona virus pandemic tightening their noose over the globe, PTC Network and its creative team are all set to commemorate a decade-long journey of the PTC Punjabi Film Awards. The commemorative event would indeed prove to be a whiff of fresh air for Punjabi cinema fans, besides being another feather to the PTC Network’s cap in the public entertainment category. And, this time it is being done in a world’s first unique initiative. The whole awards ceremony would be hosted on a virtual set with artistes and performers being in different cities, getting together virtually online on one single set.
“Nobody has attempted this ever anywhere”, says Rabindra Narayan, Managing Director & President of PTC Network. “Gurpreet Ghuggi is in Mohali, Divya Dutta is in Mumbai and they are hosting it together on a virtual set created in Delhi. Similarly Gippy Grewal and Sunanda Sharma are in Mohali, Meet Bros in Mumbai but the dancers are in Delhi and they will perform on the same set,” he elaborates. The entire awards ceremony will be totally online and on air with artistes taking part from wherever they are. It sure sounds quite a mind boggling effort.
The 10th year of the eventful journey of PTC Punjabi Film Awards in a row would be, surely than not, inimitable, engaging and entertaining in many ways than one. There is no denying the fact that organizing such mammoth events amid corona-induced restrictions of social distancing and ban on ground events, is an arduous task. But, PTC, which has carved out a niche for itself in innovative programming, is all poised to create history of sorts with its innovative and creative approach.
PTC has been instrumental in implementing the state-of-the-art technology to its optimal use and is known for making the best efforts to entertain countless viewers across the world. The organization believes in the age-old adage ‘When the going gets tough, the tough get going’, and as a segment leader and responsible media conglomerate, PTC understands well the duty to continue the journey in the realm of entertainment, howsoever hard the time might be.
The world’s number one Punjabi television network has finally announced this unique initiative to honor the best among the Punjabi cinema. The network is on its way to rewriting history on July 3, 2020.
This 10th year of honoring and recognizing the remarkable work kick started in the month of May with a call for nominations in 25 different categories, in which more than 150+ nominations were received under different categories. The initiative started getting a humongous response from the appreciative audience and hardcore lovers of Punjabi films across the globe from day one since the announcement was made and thousands of votes started pouring in. PTC Network also gets a big push from some big brands like Facebook, Instagram & MYFM, joining in to create more buzz of this unique initiative. The whole event shall be streamed live on Facebok and Instagram simultaneously with the TV telecast worldwide.
On this 3rd of July PTC Network is also set to spring a surprise for the industry by getting its two celebrity hosts together on the virtual set straight from their homes. They are joined by Ninja, Gurnam Bhullar and Harish Verma co-hosting various segments. Shining stars Gippy Grewal, Sunanda Sharma, Meet Bros and Sudesh Lehri are going to add zing to the electrifying bonanza with their glittering performances.
