65th National Film Awards Best Actor female Award to'Chandani

Announcing Sridevi's name, feature film jury head Shekhar Kapur said the actor was the most deserving candidate for her role as an avenging mother extracting justice for her abused daughter on her terms in MOM. While Boney Kapoor and the actress' other family members are trying to recoup her loss, the news of her last film being celebrated at National Awards definitely has arrived as a breath of fresh air.

Meanwhile, Actor Fahadh Faasil won the Best Supporting Actor award for the film, directed by Dileesh Pothan.

The National film awards are out and Hindi cinema has achieved only one major triumph. She had acted in Hindi, Malayalam, Tamil and Telugu films, and was often hailed as India's first female superstar.

Another big victor of the day was 19-year-old Riddhi Sen, who bagged the Best Actor award for the Bengali film Nagarkirtan.

"It's time to celebrate her life and her achievements".

Bengali actor Riddhi Sen won the best actor award for Bengali drama Nagarkirtan, while Jayaraj won best director for Malayalam drama Bhayanakam. Apart from bagging best actress award, Sridevi starrer Mom also won best background score which was given by Academy Award victor AR Rahman. She was a perfectionist, and that was evident in all the 300-plus films she did. The Awards are administered by the government's Directorate of Film Festivals.

Journalist Girdhar Jha won the best critic award, while Sunil Mishra received a special mention for best writing on cinema.

Sridevi's co-star Anil Kapoor shared a note on social media and thanked the jury for felicitating the actress with the award. Thondimuthalum Driksakshiyum won the Best Malayalam Film Award, and also the award for Best Screenplay. In 2011, he won the award for Best Supporting Actor category. The jury was chaired by veteran filmmaker Shekhar Kapur this year.
