Pride and glory


It’s a joyous occasion for the film fraternity and winning celebs share their excitement about taking the national award home. Lakshwadweep to Ladakh — the 65th National Film Award winners’ list encompassed cinematic gems from the length and breadth of India.

Pankaj Tripathi: I am absolutely delighted. I had no idea, I was even in the running. It feels amazing to know that the whole country thought my role in Newton was one of my best and to win the special mention award at the highest film awards in India is just exhilarating. My director and co-actors made it so easy for me to act in this film.

Divya Dutta: The actor in me feels alive again and grateful that there is appreciation pouring in. I am overjoyed with the news. First, my film Manto going to Cannes Film Festival and now the National award.

I am overwhelmed. After a 100 odd films, this is my first National award and I am going to treasure this moment. It means the world.
