Suniel Shetty wins Excellence Award in UK for contribution to Indian culture

Bollywood actor and entrepreneur Suniel Shetty is among a group of achievers to be awarded for excellence in their respective fields at an annual Indo-European Business Forum (IEBF) summit in the House of Lords complex in London. Shetty, the Bollywood action icon and founder of FTC Talent Media & Entertainment, was felicitated with the Award for Excellence for his Contribution to Indian Art and Culture.

“The motivation behind FTC was to protect kids from exploitation when they step into the entertainment industry,” said Shetty, as he received the award from former Indian cricket captain Kapil Dev and Indian-origin House of Lords peer Baroness Sandy Verma on Monday evening.

“It is for the children to be able to showcase their talent and today we have over a thousand success stories with plans to grow this initiative,” the actor, known for box-office hits such as “Mohra”, “Dhadkan” and “Hera Pheri”, said.
