Late Sridevi wins the National Award for Mom

Indian cinema legend Sridevi was recognized as best actress for her role in the film "Mom" at the Indian National Film Awards that were announced on Thursday.

Hindi film star Divya Dutta was named the best supporting actress for her role in "Irada", which also bagged the award for the best film on environmental conservation/preservation.

"First, my film "Manto" going to Cannes Film Festival and now the National Award..." "Water Baby" directed by Pia Shah, won the Best Debut Film of a Director in the Non-Feature Film category.

Announcing Sridevi's name, jury head Shekhar Kapur said, "The best actress is Sridevi for Mom and I promise you it is not my relationship with her".

In 2017, Akshay Kumar had won the Best Actor Award for Rustom. The panel is made up of 10-members of the Indian film industry like Kannada director P Sheshadri, screenwriter Imtiaz Hussain, actor Gautami Tadimalla and lyricist Mehboob among others. I hope this award and the film's commercial success creates a bigger space for relevant political cinema.

"I am absolutely delighted", Pankaj, who has been acknowledged for his spectacular role as a CRPF officer in the film that also starred Rajkummar Rao, said in a statement.

"I just heard about it". "She deserves it. I am really happy, it's a great news for me because it was our film". Zaira Wasim won the best actor in the supporting role for Dangal and Sonam Kapoor received special mention for her film, Neerja. The legendary actress, who recently died in Dubai, has won the prestigious award for "MOM". A well deserving honour to one of the best actors of our country. He also won the award for the Best Adapted Screenplay.

Veteran singer K J Yesudas was recognised as the best male singer for his song "Poy Maranja Kalam" in the Malayalam film "Viswasapoorva M Mansoor", while the best female singer went to Shashaa Tirupati for the song "Vaan" for "Kaatru Veliyidai".
