He further stated, "It feels incredible to know that the whole country thought my role in Newton was one of my best and to win the Special Mention Award at the highest film award in India is just exhilarating". Along with the honour for the legend, the National Awards presented the Best Hindi Film award to Newton starring Rajkummar Rao which was also the official entry from India for this year's Academy Awards.

The 65th National Film Awards was announced earlier today at PIB Conference Room, Shastri Bhawan in New Delhi. The jury comprising of 10 members headed by Shekhar Kapur honoured the best of Indian cinema for the year 2017, which saw a wide range of films.

S.S. Rajamouli's record-breaking war epic Baahubali 2: The Conclusion won the award for Best Popular Film Providing Wholesome Entertainment, besides scoring in technical categories such as action direction and special effects.

Veteran actor Vinod Khanna, who passed away previous year, was conferred the Dadasaheb Phalke Award for his contribution to Indian cinema. Apart from being considered the ultimate recognition for films, the awards also hold the distinction of recognising merit across the country and especially in regional cinema. I hope this award and the film's commercial success creates a bigger space for relevant political cinema. Hindi film "Newton", a dark comedy on Indian democracy, was named the best Hindi film and a special mention went to its actor Pankaj Tripathi for his portrayal of a cynical CRPF officer Atma Singh.
