Bollywood had something to cheer about when the 56th National Film Award for 2008 were announced on Saturday.
Priyanka Chopra won the coveted Best Actor (Female) award for her performance in director Madhur Bhandarkar’s film Fashion. Kangana Ranaut won the Best Supporting Actor (Female) award for the same film while Arjun Rampal won Best Supporting Actor (Male) for his seething performance in Rock On.
It’s the first National Award for all of them.
Dibakar Banerjee's film Oye Lucky! Lucky Oye!, which sadly released a day after the 26/11 Mumbai attacks and flopped, won the Best Popular Film.
Here’s the list of other winners:
Best Film - Antaheen (Bengali).
Best Director - Bala (for Tamil film Naan Kadavul)
Best Actor (Male) - Upendra Limaye (for Marathi film Jogwa)
