65th National Film Awards Best Actor female Award to'Chandani

The National film awards are out and Hindi cinema has achieved only one major triumph.

Internationally acclaimed Indian filmmaker and the jury chairperson of the 65th National Film Awards, Shekhar Kapur is amazed at the quality and standard of regional cinema and believes that it is giving Hindi cinema a run for its money. Late actress Sridevi was conferred with the Best Actress Award posthumously for her movie "Mom" while the Best Actor Award was bestowed upon Riddhi Sen for "Nagarkirtan". While Boney Kapoor and the actress' other family members are trying to recoup her loss, the news of her last film being celebrated at National Awards definitely has arrived as a breath of fresh air.

'Blood, sweat, tears and five years of hard work have brought us here.

As the compassionate helper Shabbo in "Veer-Zaara" or as the lower-caste Jalebi in "Delhi-6", Divya has proved her versatility time and again with strong roles. Special Jury Award in the Non-Feature category was given to "A Very Old Man with Enormous Wings And Monday", directed by Prateek Vats and produced by Films Division. She was not just a super actor, but a super wife and a super mother. She also did Tamil film Puli during her second stint. "She is not with us today but her legacy will always live on", the statement read.

However, when it came to content, regional films scored big. "But I am glad to hear all the wonderful things people are saying about the film", she had told The Pioneer when the film did well on the festival circuit. There are new filmmakers who are doing so well, someone like Sankalp (Reddy) was making a short film but then we made a feature film out of that. This wouldn't have been possible without an incredible cast and crew, and the love and support from the locals of Chhattisgarh during the shoot. I have never seen performances like that. I didn't even know I was in contention. Rima Das' Assamese film Village Rockstars, about the music aspirations of a village girl, was named the best feature film, besides scoring awards for the best location sound recordist, editing and best child artiste (Bhanita Das).
