For the whole Indian film fraternity, it was an exciting day on 24th August 2023 as the government of the Government Of India announced the winners of the 69th National Film Awards. While other awards are also prestigious, getting acknowledged by the government itself is on the next level. Several Hindi films emerged as the triumphant stars of the evening.
Notably, RRR, Gangubai Kathiawadi, and Sardar Udham shone the brightest at the 69th National Film Awards, with multiple accolades gracing their already illustrious journeys. RRR clinched an impressive six awards, showcasing its cinematic brilliance, while Gangubai Kathiawadi and Sardar Udham were not far behind, each securing five coveted awards.
