Controversies Surrounding National Awards: A Look Back at Memorable Wins

Just when the 69th National Awards winners were announced, many were taken down the memory lane as they remembered old films and winners. This year, the jury of the National Awards announced that Rocketry: The Nambi Effect won the Best Feature Film Award.

The Best Actor Award was presented to Allu Arjun for Pushpa: The Rise, whereas the Best Actress Award was given to Alia Bhatt and Kriti Sanon for Gangubai Kathiawadi and Mimi.

While fans celebrated the win of their favourites, people on social media were taken back to 2005 when Saif Ali Khan won the award for Best Actor. Many shared that it was Shah Rukh Khan who deserved the win for Swades.

Since being uploaded, the image has gone viral with tons of responses. Have a look at the post:
