- 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 created a flutter on the internet. This is the first time that Rajinikanth and Dhanush received their respective coveted awards at the same event and it would not be wrong to call it “history”. On Monday evening, Rajinikanth’s daughter and Dhanush’s wife, director-singer Aishwarya posted two pictures of the actors and wrote: “They are mine… and this is history #prouddot #proudwife.” The first picture shows Rajinikanth and Dhanush holding their respective awards, while the second picture shows the stars happily posing with a “proud” Aishwarya.

Rajinikanth received the Dadasaheb Phalke Award from Vice President Venkaiah Naidu at Vigyan Bhawan in New Delhi today. He dedicated it to his old bus driver friend, the late filmmaker K Balachander, who directed Rajinikanth’s debut film Apoorva Ragangal, his brother Satyanarayana Rao and his “directors, producers, theater owners, technicians and fans”.
