Nargis Dutt award for the best feature film on national integration went to the Marathi film "Dhappa", while the Malayalam film "Aalorumkkam" was recognised as the best film on social issues. I would look at all the actors, talk about them and I would say, "there should be not Sridevi, not Sridevi"! It is a dream come true.
