Help Anthony Gonsalves bags Karmaveer Puraskar at IFFI

Panaji, Nov 30 (PTI) Goa-born musician Anthony Gonsalves was presented with the Karmaveer Award by legendary musician Pyarelal at the ongoing International Film Festival of India (IFFI) here.

Eighty three-year-old Gonsalves, who pioneered orchestra in Hindi film industry, was given the award by Confederation of NGOs ? iCONGO on Monday.

Pyarelal Ramprasad Sharma of Laxmikant-Pyarelal team honoured this music giant, who has taken a retirement and residing at his ancestral home in Majorda in South Goa.

Goa-born internationally famed singer Hema Sardesai was also present on the dais.

Gonsalves, whose name became known through Amitabh Bachchan's song 'My name is Anthony Gonsalves' from Amar, Akbar and Anthony, started his career as a violinist in the group of Naushad, way back in 1943.

Pyarelal in the past had conceded that his song 'My name...' was a tribute to his violin teacher.
