''As a collective, the films and artistes who have been awarded today prove that contrary to popular perception, Indian cinema is neither formulaic nor conforming to stereotypes. It has successfully adapted traditional Indian narrative and oral traditions to the requirements of technology and formats of new media,'' Ansari said.

Speaking on the occasion, Minister for Information & Broadcasting, Ambika Soni said, ''The year 2013 would be observed as the Centenary year of Indian Cinema. India's first full length feature film RAJA HARISHCHANDRA was released on 3rd May 1913 at Mumbai's Coronation Cinema. To commemorate the release of India's first film, the National Film Awards Ceremony would now on be held on 3rd of May every year.''

Legendary Bengali actor Soumitra Chatterjee, who was one of the favourites of late film maestro Satyajit Ray, was conferred the highest honour in India cinema, the Dada Saheb Phalke award, for the year 2011 at an august ceremony.

''I am not in a frame of mind to speak,'' said the 77-year-old actor who is a legend of Bengali cinema who also left his mark in international cinema. He said he was overwhelmed by the honour which was presented to him by Vice-President Hamid Ansari.
