64th National Awards were announced this morning. Sonam Kapoor’s NEERJA won Best Hindi Feature film award, while Amitabh Bachchan and Taapsee Paanu starrer PINK won the award for Best Film on Social Issues. After VICKY DONOR (2012), MADRAS CAFE (2013), PIKU (2015) and now PINK is the filmmaker Shoojit Sircar’s fourth film that won National awards. 


Speaking about the same Producer Shoojit Sircar says, “I would like to humbly thank my entire team for this huge honour. PINK would not have been possible without Mr Amitabh Bachchan and his support and I would also like to thank my friend and Producer Ronnie Lahiri, Director Aniruddha, my writer Ritesh Shah, my lovely cast and crew for coming together with me. I would also like to thank the National Award jury for bestowing one of the most respectable laurels on us, and I feel more responsible now. I will not celebrate this Award in the usual manner but will dedicate to taking PINK to larger audiences.'

Here’s wishing team PINK a hearty congratulations!
