The night of celebrations seems to continue for the team of ISHQIYA. The film remains in the limelight in yet another award function. The 58th National Awards announced yesterday, presented ISHQIYA awards in the following four categories:

Raman Maroo, the producer of ISHQIYA, shares his thoughts on the occasion, "We are honored to receive the most prestigious award of the year - National Awards. ISHQIYA has been the show stealer in most award factions till date and with National Awards in our basket today, gives our work a new recognition and reverence in the industry. We are thankful to the jury members for appreciating our efforts."
Vishal Bhardwaj, who also produced the film, adds, 'I am really honoured to receive this National Award for the film of my long time Associate Abhishek Chaubey, who is like a brother to me.'
He further adds, 'I feel the music of ISHQIYA is one of my best, so far. The fact that Rekha (Vishal's wife) gets her first National Award as the best female playback singer makes it even more special for me.'
ISHQIYA is a romantic thriller. The film moves around the emotions of the three leading characters - Vidya Balan, Nasuriddin Shah and Arshad Warsi. The chemistry of the characters, their passion, their love, sense of revenge and hatred kept the audience glued to their seat making the film one of the biggest entertainers of 2010.
