West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Tuesday congratulated the 62nd National Film Award winners from her state and other parts of India.
“Congratulations to all the winners of 62nd #NationalFilmAwards. So many talented artistes across India and Bengal. Congratulations to all,” Banerjee tweeted.
The Best Direction award went to Bengali director Srijit Mukherji for “Chotushkone”, which according to the jury, has “brilliantly reflexive use of the cinematic idiom”.
Mukherji also won for Best Original Screenplay for the film, which even won the Best Cinematography accolades for Sudeep Chatterjee.
