- Rajinikanth received his Dadasaheb Phalke Award this morning
On Monday, Rajinikanth received his Dadasaheb Phalke Award at the 67th National Film Awards, where his son-in-law and actor-filmmaker Dhanush won the Best Actor Award and thrilled the Internet. It is the first time when Rajinikanth and Dhanush received their respective prestigious awards at the same ceremony and it wouldn’t be wrong to call it a “history.” On Monday evening, Rajinikanth’s daughter and Dhanush’s wife, director-singer Aishwarya, posted two photos of the actors and wrote: “They are mine … and this is history #prouddaughter #proudwife.” The first photo features Rajinikanth and Dhanush holding their respective prizes while the second one shows the stars happily posing with “proud” Aishwarya.

Rajinikanth’s Dadasaheb Phalke Award and the National Awards were announced earlier this year. The awards were handed out to awardees by Vice President Venkaiah Naidu. Kangana Ranaut won the Best Actress award for Manikarnika (2019) and Panga (2020).
