  • President's Role Cut Short National Film Award Winners May Skip Event

"We feel insulted. Around 75 awardees are threatening to boycott the award ceremony today", National Award-winning Marathi film director Prakash Oak said earlier.

Till past year, when Pranab Mukherjee was President, all awards have been handed out personally. "You can't invite us for the President's award and then inform us that the President is not going to able to give away the awards".

Ms. Irani spent almost 45 minutes during the dress rehearsal placating the agitated awardees, explaining to them the new protocol established by Mr. Kovind. "President attends all awards functions and convocations for a maximum of one hour".

While placing no blame on the President, he wonders why the President couldn't spare ample time to give the awards to everyone.

I&B minister Smriti Irani, Minister of State, I&B Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore, and the I&B ministry's secretary Narendra Kumar Sinha will present the award to the rest. Many awardees announced, in an open letter, that they'd skip the event and this included singer KJ Yesudas, filmmaker Nagraj Manjule, and filmmaker Prasad Oak.

Liverpool are without Joe Gomez, who has an ankle injury, while Joel Matip, Emre Can and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain are also out. When it became clear that we could sell him in the window then we had to do the deal and find other solutions.

This is a departure from the tradition of the president presenting the award every year in the presence of the information and broadcasting minister.

The new tradition was made evident when dress rehearsal for the 65th National Film Awards was held just a day before the ceremony on Wednesday with the focus on Sridevi family members Boney Kapoor, Jhanvi and Khushi being geared up for the show.

"I would have been equally happy if the Minister (I&B) had given me the award".

The second phase of the ceremony, when President Kovind presented 11 awards, was conducted with the traditional pomp and splendor associated with the event.

After the announcement of the National Film Awards winners for 2018, there was much excitement in the air. The impression created that it was a last minute decision taken by the office of the President is wrong and has demeaned the institution.

Should it materialize it would be a historic sit-down for a serving USA president and a North Korean leader. But the phrase is a diplomatic euphemism open to interpretation on both sides.

"Getting the National Award from the President of India is a huge honour".

In a stinging post on Facebook, Mr Pookutty pointed out that the President's office picked "only stars" for "those 11 awards". "When you speak of the National Award, automatically people visualise the President handing over the award to the recipient". I was at the Berlin Film Festival when I was swiftly summoned to New Delhi, so my parents Indu Shedde and S Rammohan went to New Delhi, and my mother received the National Award on my behalf from President KR Narayanan.

Shashaa, who bagged the Best Female Playback Singer for "Vaan varuvaan" from "Kaatru Veliyidai", told IANS: "It's like the thrill of it is gone now..."

However, while each year the number of absentee award recipients used to be in single digit, this year the number stands at approximately 55 due to the boycott call by a section of award recipients. But at the same time, these changes keep happening.
