Megastar Amitabh Bachchan won his fourth National award for 'Piku', while it was a second consecutive best actress win for Kangana Ranaut at the National Film Awards announced in New Delhi today, which saw Bollywood's dominance in major categories, barring the top prize that went to multilingual 'Baahubali'.

S.S Rajamouli’s magnum opus ‘Baahubali’ was adjudged best film for all the obvious reason. The grand scale of story telling, never before seen special effects and the sheer magnificence of the story-telling left the country in awe – as is proved by the resounding commercial success of the movie. This award comes as a nod to the creative genius of the storytellers as they piece together the next installment of the epic. The movie also won the award for best special effects.

The leading lady of ‘Tanu weds Manu returns’ Kangana Ranaut was awarded best actress for her performance in a role that garnered her much acclaim. Director Sanjay Leela Bhansali of the song-and-dance fame was crowned best director for his movie ‘Bajirao Matani’. The movie is a visual treat in trademark Bhansali style, and incorporates several stunningly choreographed song and dance sequences. It also won choreographer Remo D’Souza the award for best choreography for the song ‘Deewani Mastani’. Salman starrer ‘Bajrangi Bhaijaan’ is the most ‘popular film providing wholesome entertainment’.
