Atul Kulkarni Nominated for Asia Pacific Screen Award

The National Award Winner, Atul Kulkarni  does not need any recognition. The actor has been nominated for the Best Actor category at Asia Pacific Screen Awards, labelled as Oscars of the East. The nomination comes in the wake of the Special Mention at the Munich Film Festival in Germany for Atul’s performance of a Tamasha dancer in critically-acclaimed Marathi movie, Natrang.

The 45-year-old actor will face competition from Australia’s veteran actor Tony Barry and Chen Daoming from China, to win the honors. Anant Mahadevan’s Marathi directorial debut Mee Sindhutai Sapkal, an eponymous biopic on a noted social worker, has also been nominated for the Awards.

The jury for 4th Asia Pacific Screen Awards, to be held on December 2 at Australia’s Gold Coast, will be chaired by film critic and historian, Adrienne Mc Kibbins, and includes Australia’s film critic Russell Edwards amongst others.
