Winners of the long-delayed and much-awaited 66th National Film Awards are announced today at Shastri Bhawan in New Delhi. Director Rahul Rawail read out the names of the other jury members. Jury head Rahul Rawail, Non-feature film jury head AS Kanal, and Jury head for the best writing Utpal Bhojpuri are present at the National Film Awards 2019 announcement.

Every year, the awards are announced in April, and the ceremony is held on May 3. But this year, the awards were postponed in the wake of the general elections.

Prakash Javadekar told PTI, “They made a lot of efforts for the last two months. I am very sure that they would have picked the best films and the best directors. They will announce that at the press conference today. This is the 66th year of film awards, and they have become a prestigious institute.”
