Many people across the social media are wondering that how Vicky Kaushal’s URI THE SURGICAL STRIKE! was considered for 2018 National Film Awards?, as the film was released in 2019.
Well Here’s the Truth. In order for a film to enter the race for National Film Awards, it is supposed to have received its certificate from the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) from January 1 of that year till December 31. Fortunately for Uri, it received its certificate on December 31,2018, making it a eligible for the National Awards this year itself.
Well after winning an Award for the Best Actor; Overjoyed Vicky wrote on Twitter;
“Words might fall short to describe the happiness I’m feeling right now. For my work to be recognised by the honourable National Film Awards Jury is truly a moving moment for me & my family.
