#DadaSahebPhalkeExcellenceAwards2018 is here to honor the notable contribution by Bollywood celebrities towards Indian cinema.

Calling the social change, the celebrities also spoke in favour of the POCSO Act, which allows courts to award death penalty to those convicted of raping children below 12 years of age.
"A very harsh punishment is required to create a certain mindset in the people who even think of such horrifying crime. It is important to put something very strong as an example for them. I am very happy that the issue has been brought up. People cannot ignore it now since wrong things are happening every time," ANI quoted Shahid.
Apart from him, former actress and producer-director Divya Khosla, Shilpa Shetty, Kriti Sanon and Tamanna Bhatia have also backed the Centre's move.
However, these are not the Dadasaheb Phalke Awards, given by the government of India. Last week, Vinod Khanna and Sridevi were honoured with the Dadasaheb Phalke Award, posthumously.
Talking about the Dadasaheb Phalke Excellence Award, the Mumbai-based Dadasaheb Phalke Foundation felicitates the actors for their outstanding performance both in Bollywood and Television industry.
