The National Film Awards were announced in New Delhi today and Akshay Kumar has won his first National Award for Best Actor for his work in the 2016 film Rustom. Rustom, based on the real life Nanavati case that led to the scrapping of the jury in India's legal system, starred Akshay as a naval officer accused of murdering his wife's lover. The 49-year-old star's omission from the Filmfare Awards Best Actor category prompted outrage recently - his National Award win is likely to pacify his fans. Rustom released to middling reviews last year but Akshay Kumar's performance was singled out for critical praise.
Shah Rukh Khan says he's won 267 awards in his 24-year long career but he's yet to win a National Award. "If I didn't get it, then I don't deserve it. None of my performances till date deserve a National Award," said SRK, whose Raees releases next month.
Director Vishal Bhardwaj, who threw a party after his film Haider won five National Awards, said that he was happy and excited about the win. Mr Bhardwaj won the Best Dialogues and Best Music Director National Award.
Rajkummar Rao, who grabbed the Best Actor honour at the recently announced National Awards for his performance in Shahid, says that he wants to take Indian cinema to the world. He also talks about his next with Hansal Mehta, City Lights, a remake of British film, Metro Manila.
