You know how desperation can make you mad? This post is a result of one of those insanity trips. I searched and searched in vain online to find a compilation of all the actors from Malayalam cinema who have been recipients of the Bahadoor Award for contributions to the industry and came up with disjointed and haphazard entries across. The frustration and the ensuing helplessness was indescribable. Through learned peers offline and online, I have managed to put together the recipients of the Award since its inception in 2002. The The Bahadoor Foundation, I learn, seems to be chaired by Director Kamal, and has Dr. P.A Muhammed Syed as the current President of the Trust. It usually announces and holds the award function in May, as 22nd May marks his death anniversary.
