The much-awaited winners list of 66th National Film Awards has been finally announced today. Actors such as Ayushmann Khurrana and Vicky Kaushal, who ruled the box-office this year, have bagged the Best Actor awards. Films such as ‘Padman’, ‘URI: The Surgical Strike’ and ‘Andhadhun’ are among the films to get the honorary award. Aditya Dhar, who has also bagged the National Film Award for Best Direction, expressed his gratitude on bagging the award.

Opening up about winning the award, Aditya Dhar said in a statement, “Success consists of going from failure to failure without loss of enthusiasm.” 

His statement reads, “15 years of failures, rejections and hard work has lead to this moment and it just can’t get better than this. Thank You India, thank you Ministry of Information & Broadcasting and all the Jury members of National Award committee for considering me worthy enough for this prestigious award. This is an honor I am going to cherish for the rest of my life. Being conferred with the National Award has been a dream since the time I understood what films meant to me, and films truly mean the world to me. Thanks to my family and friends for their unconditional support over the years. The way my parents and my brother stood by me through all the struggle is what helped me realize my dream so beautifully. Thank you Ronnie Screwvala and my entire team of ‘URI’ for giving it all and making ‘URI’ what it is. This film wouldn’t have been possible without the mad obsession of each one of you to create something extraordinary for our audience.”
