Director Madhur Bhandarkar has added yet another feather in his cap. Hollywood actor Tom Bower is going to felicitate Bhandarkar with the ‘Sophia Special Achievement award’ at the 2014 Syracuse International Film Festival in New York.

The film festival going to take place from Oct 5-12 in New York this year, will also screen two of his highly acclaimed films ‘Fashion’ and ‘Heroine’.

Madhur Bhandarkar has won 4 National Awards for his films Chandani Bar, Page 3, Fashion and Traffic Signal along with numerous other national and international acclaims. This honour surely comes as a good news for the filmmaker who is now busy with his two films ‘Calendar Girls’  and ‘Madamji’ that will star Priyanka Chopra in lead.
