In his message, Tewari said, "Your success will spur the growth of Punjabi cinema and will encourage young directors to direct films that reflect concerns of society at large.Your achievement is an important milestone for the growth of regional cinema in the country."     

Produced by the National Film Development Corporation and based on Punjabi novelist Gurdial Singh's novel, the film attempts to translate to screen the effect years of subordination can bring to struggling masses in the face of events spinning beyond their control.

Director Gurvinder Singh was honoured with the award at the closing of the International Film festival of India (IFFI) 2012 in Panaji yesterday.

'Anhey Ghorey Da Daan' (Alms for the Blind Horse) has already won three National awards.
