When the Filmfare Awards South Were Introduced?
Filmfare Awards South were introduced in 1954, around the films released in 1952-53 and Filmfare Awards. In 1964, the awards were extended in Tamil, Telugu, Bengali and Marathi, to honour the excellent work of professionals in the films released in 1963. The inclusion of Malayalam and Kannada Cinema in the awards came in 1967 and 1970, respectively.
