Incidentally, this is the first time that such an award has been given to theater actors after the independence of Bangladesh. Until now, although medals were given for contribution to stage plays, there was no overall award in circulation.

Acting personality and heroic freedom fighter Nasir Uddin Yusuf is serving as the chairperson. Actress Sara Zaker is the co-chairperson.
