“We (film industry) really value the honours given by our country and government. Every Indian works towards getting recognized by the government. I remember my father (Boney Kapoor) winning a National Award for “Pukar” and my chachu (Anil Kapoor) winning the National award, they were genuinely emotional.

“These awards tell us if we are heading in the right direction. National awards are credible, they are even more important to us. Getting recognized by the government of our country is always special,” Arjun said.

The winners of 63rd National Film Awards were announced on Monday.

Megastar Amitabh Bachchan won best actor for “Piku”, Kangana Ranaut received the best actress honour, SS Rajamouli’s magnum opus “Baahubali” was announced the best feature film and Sanjay Leela Bhansali won the best director honour for “Bajirao Mastani”.
