Manu Kumaran, chairman and chief executive officer of Medient Studios, Inc., received the UIBS Award for “Initiatives and Efforts in Promoting Films and Media Business Between USA and India” in Atlanta on Wednesday.

The award was presented to him by Ajit Kumar, consul general of India, at the 4th Annual USA India Business Summit held at Georgia Tech Historic Academy of Medicine.

“It’s an unexpected honor and I’m very grateful to Ani Agnihotri and everyone else at UIBS. This is great validation and will spur us on in our efforts to make the studioplex dream a reality,” said Kumaran.

Medient Studios broke ground last month on a 1,550-acre movie and video game production complex in Effingham County.

“Medient has created history by making a large investment and commitment to film and media industry in Georgia and USA. We expect many good products and films to audiences worldwide,” said Ani Agnihotri, founder and managing partner, US India Business Research Center.

Earlier in the day, in his address to the conference, Kumaran spoke about the growing business and entrepreneurial opportunities in film and new media.

The goal of the UIBS is to promote business and investment between the United States and India in key areas of technology, clean tech, infrastructure, logistics, real estate and investment and more. The summit seeks to connect entrepreneurs and small-to-medium size businesses.

Among the distinguished speakers at the two-day summit were Abhay Paranjape (director, Lockheed Martin, USA), Sunil K. Ghatnekar (chief finance officer, Bottling Investments Group, The Coca-Cola Company), Sam Pitroda, (advisor to the prime minister of India, public information infrastructure and Innovations and chairman of the National Innovation Council) and Nirupama Rao, ambassador of India to the U.S.
