New Delhi: The 65th National Film Awards 2018 ceremony began at Vigyan Bhawan in New Delhi on Thursday amid controversy. Over 70 recipients decided not to attend the function to protest President Ram Nath Kovind’s decision to not personally present the prizes to all the winners. The President arrived at the end of the ceremony to give award 11 artistes and deliver a speech.

Actor Sridevi posthumously won the Best Actress Award for her role in Hindi film Mom while Bengali actor Riddhi Sen got the Best Actor award for Nagar Kirtan.
