64th National Film Awards 2017
Actor Akshay Kumar feels great to have triumphed the most prestigious award of the country.
Shivaay, directed by Ajay Devgn, has won the National Award 2017 for “Best Visual Effects”.
Earlier today, the National Film Awards for 2016 were announced and unlike last year, it was a pleasing change to encounter that the top honors were not solely given to Hindi films.
The regional films ablaze in the ceremony and for a country like India that produces films in more than 24 languages, it was applaudable.
Renowned film producer, director, and screenwriter Shri Priyadarshan is the Jury Chairperson in the “Feature Films category”.
Akshay Kumar had a message for his wife Twinkle Khanna after his huge victory and she doesn’t know whether to laugh or cry.
