Akshay Kumar is one of the finest actors in Bollywood and his versatility is absolutely gripping. Most often, his best films have failed to win awards at prestigious functions. In the world of Kapoors and Khans, a hard working Kumar has often been underrated.
His films like ‘Baby’, ‘Special 26’ and more recently, ‘Rustom’, were great films, but none of them won accolades. But above all these flamboyant filmi awards, there is the national award, which symbolizes true pride.
Today morning, the 64th National Film Awards were announced and Akshay Kumar was awarded the National Award for best actor for his spectacular performance in ‘Rustom’. Sonam Kapoor won the best actress award for ‘Neerja’.
It was a special and joyous moment for Akshay, and he couldn’t hold back and expressed his gratitude to his parents, fans, and his beloved wife, Twinkle.

This is what he said about Twinkle,
I will like to thank my wife Twinkle Khanna who used to tease me often as she said that its good that I have stopped attending award functions since I never returned with an award.
Twinkle replied to him with mixed emotions, which is adorable and honest.
