New Delhi : 63rd National Film Award has declared SS Rajamouli’s Telugu film Baahubali as the Best Film award. Bollywood superstar Amitabh Bachchan won the Best Actor award for his role in ‘Piku’ while Kangana Ranaut won Best Actress for her role in ‘Tanu Weds Manu Returns.”
Director Sanjay Leela Bhansali has won Best Director for his magnum opus ‘Bajirao Mastani.
With some major blockbusters hitting the silver screen last year, it was a bit difficult to decide the best among the bests.
Earlier, Director Ramesh Sippy, who chaired the 11-member jury for the selection of movies this year, handed over the recommendations for the 63rd National Awards for films to the Information and Broadcasting minister Arun Jaitley, along with director/actor Satish Kaushik.
The National Awards for films, which were started as an annual incentive by the Government of India , for the making of artistic, competent and meaningful films have come a long way, to cover the entire national spectrum of Indian Cinema, to judge merit by the highest possible yardstick and to become the most coveted and prestigious awards in the country.
Winners List so far:
Best actress: Kangana Ranaut for ‘Tanu Weds Manu Returns’
Best actor: Amitabh Bachchan for ‘Piku’
Best Film: ‘Baahubali: The Beginning’
Best Director: Sanjay Leela Bhansali for ‘Bajirao Mastani’
