At the opening ceremony of the 53rd International Film Festival of India, it was announced that actor Chiranjeevi is conferred with the Indian Film Personality of the Year Award for 2022. Following that, Prime Minister Narendra Modi took to his Twitter handle to extend his wishes to the veteran actor.

He wrote, "Chiranjeevi Garu is remarkable. His rich work, diverse roles and wonderful nature have endeared him to film lovers across generations. Congratulations to him on being conferred the Indian Film Personality of the Year at IFFI Goa." (sic)

Thanking the PM, Chiranjeevi wrote, "Feel immensely honoured and humbled, Hon’ble Prime Minister Sri Narendra Modi ji. Very grateful for your kind words!"

It may be noted that the actor was honoured with the Padma Bhushan, India's third-highest civilian award, for his contributions to Indian cinema, in 2006. Chiranjeevi has acted in 150 films spanning over four decades.

In the past, film luminaries like Waheeda Rahman, Rajinikanth, Ilaiyaraaja, S. P. Balasubrahmanyam, Amitabh Bachchan, Salim Khan, Biswajit Chatterjee, Hema Malini and Prasoon Joshi have been honoured with this award.
