So Bollywood once again makes us proud by winning it big at the prestigious National Film Awards 2016.

Sr Bachchan has been felicitated for his praiseworthy performance in Piku whereas Kangana has bagged it for her box office stunner, Tanu Weds Manu Returns. Kudos to the two for achieving this yet another milestone in their career.


Not to forget, this is the third time Kangana has bagged a National Award for her remarkable journey in Bollywood.
