Amitabh Bachchan has added another award to his list (he probably has a room full of them by now!). The veteran actor won the National Award for Best Actor at the 57th National Awards for his role in the movie Paa in which he played a child suffering from progeria. This is Amitabh’s 4th National Award (3rd as Best Actor). Big B’s son, Abhishek Bachchan, who played Amitabh’s father in the movie, was not disappointed as his movie Delhi 6 won the Nargis Dutt award for best film with social message. Arundhuti Nag, who played Amitabh Bachchan’s grandmother in the film, won the award for Best Supporting Actress.
Aamir Khan, Sharman Joshi and R. Madhavan’s 3 Idiots won the National Award for Best Popular Film. The movie also won the Wholesome Entertainment Award. Aamir, who is busy with the promotions of his wife Kiran Rao’s film Dhobi Ghat, has more than reason to cheer!
