Bollywood stars like Amitabh Bachchan (Piku) and Kangana Ranaut (Tanu Weds Manu Returns) bagged big honors at the 63rd Annual National Film Awards, which were announced Monday. The talented pair are no strangers to this honor – this is Amitabh’s fourth National Film Award and Kangana’s third.

Telegu film Baahubali was named the Best Film of 2015. Acclaimed film Bajirao Mastani also took home three awards: Sanjay Leela Bhansali for Best Director, Tanvi Azmi for Best Supporting Actress and Remo D’Souza for the choreography of Deewani Mastani. The quirky Dum Laga Ke Haisha won the Best Hindi Film award.


“I’m very happy for getting my second National Award after ‘Kabul Express’. National Awards are the only relevant awards left today in the country,” filmmaker Kabir Khan said after Bajrangi Bhaijaan’s win for Best Popular Film Providing Wholesome Entertainment.
