National award for Amitabh and Kangana

 The 63rd National Film Awards are back and the winners have just been announced.

Legendary actor Amitabh Bachchan for Best Actor ('Piku') and Kangana Ranaut for Best Actress ('Tanu Weds Manu Returns').
From the main set of awards, S S Rajamouli's 'Baahubali' has won for Best Film, filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali for Best Director ('Bajirao Mastani'). 
Director Ramesh Sippy, along with director/actor Satish Kaushik, on Monday handed over the recommendations for the 63rd National Awards for films to the Information and Broadcasting minister Arun Jaitley.
The National Awards for films, which were started as an annual incentive by the Government of India , for the making of artistic, competent and meaningful films have come a long way, to cover the entire national spectrum of Indian Cinema, to judge merit by the highest possible yardstick and to become the most coveted and prestigious awards in the country.
