The National Film Awards, the most prominent and prestigious film awards in India, are being given away today! These awards, instituted in 1954, have been the premier awards in our country ever since. Awarded to films produced in the previous year across the country, they hold the distinction of awarding merit to the best of Indian Cinema, as well as presenting awards for the best films in each region and language of the country.
The names of the awardees were announced earlier this year, and there were quite a lot of members from the South Indian film industry on the list! There is a lot more to cheer for Kollywood as ace director K. Balachander has been named as the recipient of the Dadasaheb Phalke Lifetime Achievement Award.
All the awards for the technicians were given away first, and then the biggies followed! Veteran lyricist and poet Vairamuthu collected the award for Thenmaerkku Paruvakkatru. Dhanush was spotted sitting alongside Saranya Ponvannan, awaiting his turn to collect the prestigious award! This year has also been very good for Tamil Cinema, as it made a rich haul of 14 awards!
