The 30-year-old actor, who was in the capital yesterday to promote his film 'Ki & Ka,' said getting honoured by the government is always special and the industry cherishes it more than anything.

"We (film industry) really value the honours given by our country and government. Every Indian works towards getting recognized by the government. I remember my father (Boney Kapoor) winning a National Award for "Pukar" and  my chachu (Anil Kapoor) winning the National Award, they were genuinely emotional.

The winners of 63rd National Film Awards were announced yesterday. Megastar Amitabh Bachchan won best actor for 'Piku', Kangana Ranaut received the best actress honour, SS Rajamouli's magnum opus 'Baahubali' was announced the best feature film and Sanjay Leela Bhansali won the best director honour for 'Bajirao Mastani'.
