ASHOK AMRITRAJ has added another feather to his cap with the 2004 Producer of Vision award, a prestigious U.S. film award, which was given at the 2004 Vision Awards function.

The vision awards are presented annually to organisations and individuals who have exhibited exceptional "sight, foresight and insight" in their creative contributions to the enrichment of humankind.

The past awardees include personalities such as Steven Spielberg and James Cameroon.
