National Film Awards 2019 Akshay Kumar could not believe his film PadMan: Akshay Kumar has been very happy before the release of Mission Mangal. His film Padman has been selected for the National Film Award for Best Film on Social Issues. When Akshay came to know about this, he was not convinced at first.
Akshay Got National Film Award 2019
Released in 2018 is Padman’s social drama, directed by R Balki, while Twinkle Khanna made her debut as a producer. Twinkle tweeted that she was on the way when the National Awards were announced. He found out from a tweet that Padman had received the National Award. At first it was not sure, but then it turned out that Padman had actually received the award. Something similar happened with Akshay. Akshay retweeted Twinkle’s tweet and said yes, and the next call came to me. It was encouraging to see if we really won the Best Film on Social Issues Award for Padman. All I can say is – say to the whole world, copy that.
Yes and the next call was to me, half anxious…half excited to confirm if we’d actually won the #NationalAward for Best Film On A Social Cause for #PadMan. All I can say, ‘Saari duniya se kaho, Copy That!’ 😁 https://t.co/kti4I7DvxO” rel=”nofollow
