Here are the winners of 65th National Film Awards

Indian cinema legend Sridevi was recognized as best actress for her role in the film "Mom" at the Indian National Film Awards that were announced on Thursday.

The wait to hear the best films of 2017 is finally over.

A ten member jury panel headed by Director Shekhar Kapur announced the 65th National Film Awards at the PIB Conference Room.

Mom features Sridevi as Devki Sabarwal, as a biology teacher, who avenges her daughter's rape by blazing hell on the four perpetrators. Priti Gandhi of the BJP Mahila Morcha noted, "The legendary Sridevi being conferred the National award and superstar Vinod Khanna being awarded the Dada Saheb Phalke award is a wonderful decision". Apart from being considered the ultimate recognition for films, the awards also hold the distinction of recognising merit across the country and especially in regional cinema.

Rajkummar Rao-starrer "Newton", which tells the story of a government clerk who tries to run a free and fair election in a conflict area in central India, was also the official selection as India's entry for the 90th Academy Awards. In 2013, he won the State award for Best actor for the films Artist and North 24 Kaatham.

Telugu film industry's stalwarts are expected to celebrate it through tweets/statements.

"I just heard about it". Taapsee Pannu said, "This is the third time I have had the opportunity to be a part of a National Award Winning film". I would like to thank Akshay Kumar, the director and the producer. It is my first national award even though everyone thought I had already won a national award.

Veteran singer K J Yesudas was recognised as the best male singer for his song "Poy Maranja Kalam" in the Malayalam film "Viswasapoorva M Mansoor", while the best female singer went to Shashaa Tirupati for the song "Vaan" for "Kaatru Veliyidai".
