Chennai, Nov 19 | Two masters of cinema — Hollywood producer-director Martin Scorsese and Hungary’s best-known filmmaker Istvan Szabo — will be honoured with the first Satyajit Ray Lifetime Achievement Awards at the 52nd International Film Festival of India (IFFI), which opens in Panjim on Friday, November 20.

The Lifetime Achievement Award was renamed after Satyajit Ray in honour of the late maestro whose birth centenary is being observed this year.

Announcing the names, Festival Director Chaitanya Prasad said Scorsese and Szabo will not be able to attend the festival physically, “but their video messages conveying acceptance of the award will be played”.

Prasad also announced the actress and MP from Mathura, Hema Malini, and the lyricist and Chairperson of the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC), Prasoon Joshi, will each get the Personality of the Year 2021 award.

He added that the festival will also pay homage to the late Kannada movie star, Puneeth Rajkumar, who was just recently honoured posthumously with the Karnataka Ratna by the state’s chief minister.

This homage will be in addition to the special tribute being planned for Sean Connery, the Scotsman who first played James Bond.

Stating that the 52nd IFFI will open with a star-studded inaugural ceremony, where Salman Khan, Ranveer Singh, Riteish and Genelia Deshmukh and Shraddha Kapoor, among others, will grace the stage, the festival director informed the media that Karan Johar and Manish Paul would host the event.

Share Market Closing Bell: Nifty ends above 15,800, Sensex gains 433 pts

The Indian stock market surged and continued its up-move on Monday’s opening bell.

However, the battle with inflation can be stretched, according to Deputy RBI Governor Michael Patra. On Friday, he said that retail inflation will likely get back to the mid-point of the Reserve Bank of India’s medium-term target of 2-6% in two years, given the raft of measures initiated by the monetary and fiscal authorities. Sensex gained 0.82 percent and closed at 53161.28 and Nifty inched up 0.85 percent intraday and closed at 15832.05 levels while Bank Nifty gained 0.55 percent and settled at 33811.25 levels.

Nifty heavy weights contributed the maximum which helped the indices to sustain above 15800 levels. After a long time all sectors ended in green. However maximum contribution was led by Nifty CPSE and IT with gain of 2 percent each.

In Nifty stocks, ONGC, COALINDIA and LT were the top gainers while APOLLOHOSP, EICHERMOT and HDFCLIFE were the prime laggards. OI Data of Nifty indicates, on the call side the highest OI witnessed at 16000 followed by 16200 strike prices while on the put side, the highest OI was at 15500 followed by 15700 strike price.

The trend may remain bullish for the shorter term but simultaneously profit booking from higher levels is expected as we are inching towards monthly expiry. Technically, Sustaining above 16000 levels on Nifty this week could result in acceleration of the uptrend, while 15,550 needs to be protected on the downside. If the Nifty breaches 15,350 on the downside, then the recent bullishness gets negated.

On the other hand, Bank Nifty has support at 33000 levels while resistance at 34500 levels. In coming days Crude, USDINR and Gold may drive and impact volatility in the Indian market as well.
