Sun TV Network presents ‘Comedy Awards 2014’

MUMBAI: Comedy is an integral part of an average Indian life. Like music, comedy also plays a pertinent role in entertaining the audience. South Indian films have a reputation of creating some of the biggest stalwarts in comedy. Despite its importance, when it comes to rewarding the work done by comedians there has not been much. All film awards will have just one or two categories for comedies. Incidentally music has its own awards as well. 

This gap created the idea of coming up with an exclusive comedy awards for South Indian Movies (Tamil, Telugu and Kannada) by the comedy genre channels of Sun TV Network. The network has come up with ‘Comedy Awards 2014,’ a platform to honour all the comedians who performed outstandingly well in the year 2014.
