This is Amitabh Bachchan’s fourth national award. The actor first won a national award for best actor for Agneepath in 1990.

His next two national award wins happened in 2005 and 2009 for Black and Paa respectively.

The National Awards, announced on March 28, were criticised for honouring mainstream films such as Baahubali and Bajirao Mastani while ignoring other critically acclaimed works.

Meanwhile, Kangana’s father Amardeep Ranaut said it was a proud moment to see his daughter receive her third National Award from President Pranab Mukherjee.

“... I am very happy. I am a proud father and it is a matter of great pride,” he said.

The 29-year-old actress stood out in an off-shoulder shimmery light blue gown.

She teamed her gown with a classic bob, which is similar to the look that she will be seen sporting in her upcoming film Rangoon.

Unlike the traditional attire opted by Indian celebrities for such events, Kangana usually goes for international cotour. She had opted for a dust pink gown by India-born designer Bibhu Mohapatra in the 2014 National Awards where she was honoured for her role in Queen.

Her third National award was in the best supporting actress category for Fashion.

As she arrived, Kangana greeted Amitabh Bachchan and his family who were sitting in the front row. Bachchan won the best actor honour, his fourth National Award, for his role in Piku.

The ceremony was a welcome respite for the actress, who is engaged in a bitter fight with her Kites co-star Hrithik Roshan. Both the stars have slapped legal notices on each other besides engaging in a public row.

Hrithik says he never had a relationship with Kangana after she referred to him as a “silly ex” in an interview. The actor claims that the actress was corresponding with his imposter.

Kangana, however, maintains they had a relationship while accusing the actor of engaging in slut-shaming by releasing her private emails to him.
