    'The National Award is our nation's highest recognition, being recognised at the President's hand is our privilege, our honour and our dream.'
    'The nation's sentiment got left out in the choices that were made yesterday...

    A day after the fiasco at the National Film Awards ceremony at Vigyan Bhavan in New Delhi, Bengali Director Kaushik Ganguly is still smarting.

    Ganguly, whose film Nagarkirtan won the Best Actor Award for Riddhi Sen, Best Costume Award for Gobindo Mondol, Best Makeup Artist Award for Ram Rajak and the Special Jury Award, feels let down on behalf of his team.

    "We were waiting in the lobby, all dressed up and excited about our film being honoured. Why weren't we informed about the President's inability to personally give away the awards to all of us?" he asks Subhash K Jha.

    "You can't invite us for the President's awards and then inform us that the President is not able to give them away," Ganguly says.

    "Winning the National Award is a great achievement, and to receive it from the hands of the President of India is the other part of the happiness the winners experience. We were robbed of that happiness," he adds.

    Ganguly feels the National Awards were politicised when they were given away by Information and Broadcasting Minister Smriti Irani.

    "If not the President, the awards should have been given by the vice-president," Ganguly says.

    "These positions are beyond politics. But the moment you bring the minister of information and broadcasting into the picture, you are politicising the National Film Awards. And that is a very disturbing thing to do," he says

    The ministry of information and broadcasting is contemplating to send the citations, medals and cheques to over 50 absentee awardees at the 65th National Film Awards this year, through post.

    The National Film Awards were presented on May 3 in the national capital, but many recipients decided to “boycott” the ceremony over the president handing over the honour to only a select set of winners.

    “The ministry is contemplating to send the National Film Awards to those who missed the function, through post. A decision regarding it will be taken soon,” ministry sources said.

    They said it was not a new practice to send the awards via post to those who missed the event due to any reason.

    In a departure from tradition, the function, held at Vigyan Bhavan, was divided into two phases. The first set of awards was conferred by Union Information and Broadcasting Minister Smriti Irani and Minister of State Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore.

    The second lot, which included posthumous recognitions for Vinod Khanna and Sridevi (Dadasaheb Phalke and Best Actress, respectively), was presented by President Ram Nath Kovind.

    The murmurs of discontent over the new practice under which the president was not going to present the awards to each of the winners began to gain ground during the rehearsal of the ceremony on May 2 when the winners were informed about the change.

    Traditionally, the president gives away all the National Film Awards.

    Earlier, over 70 artistes, in an open letter had said, that they were skipping the ceremony as they ?felt dejected rather than honoured? on being informed at the last minute that the president would give away only 11 awards.
