Blockbuster "Baahubali 2: The Conclusion" won most popular film and awards for special effects and action choreography. "I'm ecstatic with the news about the film winning the National Award Honour".

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.

Bengali actor Riddhi Sen won the best actor award for Bengali drama Nagarkirtan, while Jayaraj won best director for Malayalam drama Bhayanakam.
