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.
"There always has to be dialogue, not being able to say and express whatever you want to is also not cool," says actor Sonam Kapoor who had come out in support of stand-up comedian Tanmay Bhatt after a huge row over him morphing a conversation between legends Sachin Tendulkar and Lata Mangeshkar. She says she doesn't share the opinion that everybody in the Hindi film industry has of always trying to be politically correct. On the debate about feminism she claims that everyone deserves equal opportunity and not simply women being preferred for certain jobs. The actor also claims that the role she essayed in the movie Neerja was her toughest so far.
