President Pratibha Patil will present the nation's highest award in cinema, the Dadasaheb Phalke Award, to D Rama Naidu and the 57th National Film Awards for 2009 at a function on 22nd October.

D. Ramanaidu, the veteran film producer from Andhra Pradesh will receive the Dadasaheb Phalke Award for the year 2009 for his outstanding contribution in the field of Indian Cinema.

The function will, as in previous years, take place in the plenary hall of Vigyan Bhavan.

With this, the backlog in presentation of National Film Awards that got delayed because of a legal case some years earlier has been wiped. While the awards for 2008 were given in February and those for 2009 are being presented now.

The award consists of a Swarn Kamal, a cash prize of Rs. one million and a shawl. The award is given on the basis of recommendations of a Committee of eminent persons. The award will be given at the National Films Awards Function scheduled to be held next month.

Amitabh Bachchan will receive the best actor award for his role in the film PAA while Ananya Chatterjee will get the best actress award for her role in the film Bengali film ABOHOMAN directed by Rituparno Ghosh who also gets the best director award.

The Bollywood hit 3 IDIOTS by Raj Kumar Hirani won the award for best popular film providing wholesome entertainment apart from getting two other awards: best re-recording of the final mixed track for Anup Dev and best lyric 'Behti hawaa sa thha woh' by Swanand Kirkire.

LAHORE in Hindi by Sanjay Puran Singh Chauhan has won the Indira Gandhi award for best debut film of a director, with actor Farouque Shaikh getting the best supporting actor award.
