WEB DESK: Baahubali has won the Best Film award at 63rd National 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.”
Kangana Ranaut, 28, won the award for her role in romantic comedy drama “Tanu Weds Manu Returns” for her endearing dual turn as Tanu, a troublesome wife and Haryanvi sportsperson Datto.
The actress called it the “best birthday gift” especially since she gets to honour with Bachchan. “It is the best birthday gift I could have got. I am thrilled and feel blessed especially since Mr Bachchan is the best actor with me,” Ranaut said in a statement.
This is the third trophy for Ranaut at the National Awards, having won best actress for “Queen” last year and earlier for best supporting actress for 2008 film “Fashion”.
She added, “Mr Bachchan messaged me on my birthday, exactly at 12 in the night. Even before my parents wished me, he was the first to wish me, that is how lovely he is. Now when I will be meeting him, I know he will be very proud of me. I look forward to click a picture with him.”
The 63rd National Awards were announced on Sunday and the best in cinema across various languages were honoured in the different categories.
