Sridevi Rajkummar Rao Taapsee Pannu win laurels at 65th National Awards

Bollywood actor Sridevi has been honoured with the Best Actress Award posthumously at National Award 2018 for her incredible performance in Mom.

Ridhhi Sen won Best Actor for Nagar Kirtan, while Baahubali 2 was named Best Popular Film.

Sridevi died on February 24 in a hotel in Dubai due to "accidental drowning". Responding to the news, Tripathi, who played a cynical CRPF officer, Aatma Singh, in Newton, said, "I am absolutely delighted".

NEW DELHI-The late Sridevi was on April 13 named the Best Actress for her role as a vengeful mother in the Hindi film "Mom" at the 65th National Film Awards. It's time to celebrate her achievements. Special Jury Award in the Non-Feature category was given to "A Very Old Man with Enormous Wings And Monday", directed by Prateek Vats and produced by Films Division. "She was always a perfectionist and it showed in all the 300 plus films she did".

Russian Federation warns of 'dangerous' escalation over Syria
Immediately after the attack, hundreds of residents began gathering in the landmark Omayyad square of the Syrian capital. Witnesses saw blasts surrounding much of the Syrian capital and a huge fire could be seen from a distance to the east.

The other best film winners were Kaccha Limbu (Marathi), Thondimuthalum Driksakshiyum (Malayalam), Newton (Hindi), Mayurakshi (Bengali), Ishu (Assamese), To Let (Tamil), Gazi (Telugu) and DHH (Gujarati).

'We are thankful to the jury for appreciating us.

Mumbai: Impressed by regional cinema, director Shekhar Kapur, who headed the feature film jury of this year's National Film Awards, says Hindi film industry needs to pull up its socks. They have also thanked Sridevi's friends and fans for their congratulatory messages. Despite its failings, Mom gave Sridevi many moments to suppress what her character feels but still be able to convey it all - something that she is peerless at - and this is exactly what made the whole thing worthwhile. I am happy that she got a send-off at the state level. We used to take a vote and it always came back to Sridevi.

In fact, MOM was touted to be one of Sridevi's best performance post her comeback on the big screen. But the truth remains that Sridevi was counted among the modern greats much before these films. I want to make you so proud. I wanted to tell my parents and my wife, but I had no idea if it was true. I didn't know Assam was making films that were winning at the Cannes Film Festival.
