The revised list of the Karnataka State Film Awards for 2010-2011 was announced on Friday.
Earlier, actress Priya Hassan and producer Basant Kumar Patil had filed a complaint about irregularities in the selection of awards for the year 2010-2011. Following the complaint, the state government dissolved the previous committee that chose the winners and also withdrew the awards.
On Friday, the revised list of winners of 2010-2011 was announced. Kannada actor Puneeth Rajkumar has won the best actor (male) award. The actor has retained his name from the previous list, but has bagged the award for a different film.
