65th National Film Awards LIVE: Here's a list of winners

The prestigious 65th National Film Awards were announced on Friday and late actress Sridevi has been awarded the best actress award posthumously for her performance in Mom.

Besides, Baahubali 2: The Conclusion and Rajkummar Rao's Newton too have emerged as major winners.

The winners were decided by a 10 members jury which is headed by renowned filmmaker Shekhar Kapur. The award giving ceremony will reportedly be held on May 3.

Notably, the National Film Awards 2017 invited a major controversy after Akshay Kumar won the Best actor award for his performance in Rustom. It was alleged that he won the award as a result of favoritism by the then jury head, filmmaker Priyadarshan.

It will be interesting to see how the audience will react to this year's National Film Award winner's list.
