The 35-year-old ‘Grand Masti’ star received the honour from President Pranab Mukherjee here yesterday.
“With Honourable President of India Shri Pranab Mukherjee receiving the National Award for ‘Yellow’,” Riteish tweeted along with a photo.
The actor got emotional after receiving the honour and dedicated it to his father, who passed away in 2012 after suffering from a serious liver ailment.
“My first National Award. This one is for my father… He would have been proud and said with a smile, ‘Well done beta’,” he wrote further.
The actor, who ventured into production last year with Marathi film ‘Balak-Palak’, will be next seen in Bollywood film ‘Ek Villain’.
