‘Dabangg’ earns the highest honour – the National Award!

Chulbul Pandey wins over the National Award jury and walks away with the honour for wholesome entertainment

The most prestigious kudos for films in India – the National Awards – were announced this afternoon. The jury declared the Malayalam movie Adaminte Makan Abu as Best Film and Vetrimaran as Best Director for the Tamil film Aadukalam, while Salman Khan’s Dabangg won the prize for Wholesome Entertainment. The Best Actress award has been shared between Mitali Jagtap Varadkar for Babuu Band Bajaa (Marathi) and Saranya Ponvannan for Thenmerkku Paruvakkatru (Tamil). Ailing actor Rajinikanth’s son-in-law Dhanush took home the Best Actor award for Aadukalam, sharing it with Salim Kumar who won it for Adamante Makan Abu. Vishal Bhardwaj’s score for Ishqiya bagged him the award for Best Music Director (Songs) while his wife Rekha won Best Playback Singer – quite a musical family, this! The Rishi and Neetu Kapoor-starrer Do Dooni Chaar has been voted Best Hindi Film. To that, an elated member of Planman Motion Pictures said that they were surprised by the result, especially because there was no lobbying done or any extra effort involved to make it to the nominations list. There are not-happy murmurs about Vikramaditya Motwane’s Udaan not winning anything here – apparently it was a strong contender, having swept so many jury awards since it was released.
