They say an honour outlasts time and space.

Rajkummar Rao-starrer Bollywood film "Newton" was adjudged as the Best Film at the 65th National Film Awards. "Baahubali toh aap sab jaante hai (everyone knows Baahubali)", Shekhar Kapoor said while awarding the film for Best Action-Direction. Sridevi's daughters Janhvi and Khushi and her husband Boney Kapoor are elated with the honour.

In a conversation with PTI, Sridevi's Mom co-actor, Adnan Siddiqui remarked, "I am not surprised, she deserved more".

Vinod Khanna, who died in April 2017 from bladder cancer, was also honoured posthumously at the awards, receiving the Dadasaheb Phalke award. Through the first half of the 70s, he outshone himself in terms of variety, scale and range.

Best Hindi film: Newton. When Boney ji had approached me for the film, it was she who flew down to Chennai, met me and insisted I score the music. On the other hand, The Ghazi Attack is a film that I am proud of, because we faced resistance while making it.
