The 66th National Film Awards were announced today and the Akshay Kumar starrer Pad Man bagged the award for Best Film On Social Issues.
The actor shared this on hearing this news. “I was in the midst of Mission Mangal promotions when Tina called me asking if it was true? If Pad Man had actually won a National Award for Best Film On Social Issues. All my tiredness of promotions vanished hearing this news. I remember it was on the sets of Pad Man only that Sonam and I got the news of winning our respective National Awards last year. So life has come a full circle and I couldn’t be happier for Tina for winning this with her debut production and of course R Balki for putting it all together and the entire team behind Pad Man. Not just that, Chumbak, a Marathi film I presented, Swanand Kirkire won the National Award for Best Supporting Actor for that film. Overall, it’s been a rewarding day," he said.
Pad Man also stars Radhika Apte and Sonam Kapoor.
We at Box Office India congratulate the team of Pad Man and you don’t forget to do same in the comments section given below
