In memory: Grieving Boney Kapoor tweets again from wife Sridevi's account

In memory: Grieving Boney Kapoor tweets again from wife Sridevi's account

Sridevi-the only Bollywood recipient among the four major categories-was posthumously awarded best actress for her performance in Ravi Udyawar's rape-revenge thriller "Mom", while Riddhi Sen received the best actor award for Kaushik Ganguly's queer drama "Nagarkirtan". "I also thank all of the people for selecting such a deserving filmmaker, who understands and appreciates the difference between cinema and movies".

He further added, "We used take a vote and it always came back to Sridevi".

Also starring Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Akshaye Khanna in the lead role, the movie was critically acclaimed by the audience.

The unfortunate decease of the first female superstar, Sridevi once again made the everyone moist-eyed as she was awarded the Best Actress National Award for best actress in "Mom". Last year, Akshay Kumar bagged the Best Actor award for Rustom.

Guess what, the Isaipuyal had taken time off his busy schedule to share a heart-felt message for fans following the achievement. I'm really happy it's a great news for me because it was our film.

"I am extremely pleased to learn that "Nagar Kirtan" won four national awards in different categories".




Her role in "Mom" was close to Sridevi's heart. She was a perfectionist, and that was evident in all the 300-plus films she did.

Movies such as Walking With The Wind, Sinjar, Paddayi, Hello Arsi, Kachcha Limbu, Thondimuthalum Driksakshiyum, Hebbettu Ramakka, Mayurakshi and To Let emerged as best films in the Ladakhi, Jasari, Tulu, Odiya, Marathi, Malayalam, Kannada, Bengali and Tamil languages.

Last year, Syam Pushkaran won the award for Best Screenplay (original) for Maheshinte Prathikaram.

Lakshwadweep to Ladakh, the 65th National Film Award winners' list encompassed cinematic gems from the length and breadth of India, with an Assamese film Village Rockstars walking away with the Best Feature Film title after almost three decades.

Kapur says that giving awards also means that those films are meant to be seen and that it is important to not go by the words of film critics as they are more or less prejudiced.

"Rima Das" "Village Rockstars", about the spirit of poor but fun-loving children, also won the Best Editing honour for the filmmaker.
