Renowned filmmaker JP Dutta, celebrated for his cinematic masterpieces like 'Border', 'LOC Kargil', and 'Refugee', was honoured with the esteemed Maharashtra Bhushan Raj Kapoor Award in recognition of his outstanding dedication to Indian cinema.


Dutta, recognized for his portrayal of patriotic narratives on the big screen, began his cinematic journey with the 1985 action-packed film 'Ghulami'. His repertoire includes directing notable action dramas such as 'Yateem', 'Batwara', and the acclaimed 'Border', which garnered him the National Award for Best Feature Film on National Integration. It also left an indelible mark on the cultural landscape, striking a chord with audiences across India. Dutta's movies are distinguished by their intricate narratives, multifaceted characters, and sweeping cinematic panoramas, offering an immersive tribute to the unsung heroes of the nation. 


In an era where cinema is breaking through geographical barriers, JP Dutta's films act as a conduit, sharing India's tales of bravery and selflessness with audiences worldwide. His talent for crafting captivating stories with genuine historical and cultural essence has garnered recognition not only domestically but also internationally, highlighting cinema's influence in shaping perceptions and appreciation of a country's legacy and principles.


Talking about it, Dutta said, "This recognition means everything as it comes from the place I was born and brought up in. This state, this city is my home and there is nothing bigger than to be honoured by your home. Also, for a boy who started his career from RK film studios to be given an award named after Raj Kapoor is a feeling I can’t put into words. I would like to thank the Honorable Chief Minister Shri Eknath Shinde, Deputy CM Fadnavis ji and the Culture Ministry for this award and recognition of my work."
