Mumbai: Over the moon after receiving the National Award for ‘Best Actor’ for her performance in the acclaimed comedy-drama ‘Mimi’, actor Kriti Sanon took to her Instagram handle to share pictures from the event.
At the 69th National Awards ceremony in the national capital on Tuesday, Kriti received the ‘Best Actress’ award from President Droupadi Murmu.
In one of the images that she shared with her fans on social media, Kriti is seen giving a warm hug to Alia Bhatt, who also won the ‘Best Actor’ award for her performance in the Sanjay Leela Bhansali directorial ‘Gangubai Kathawadi’.
In the other images, she is seen posing with fellow honorees at the 69th National Awards, including her ‘Mimi’ co-star Pankaj Tripathi, producer-filmmaker Karan Johar, and ‘Best Actor’ winner Allu Arjun, among others.
She captioned the images as, “Happy faces sharing a proud moment together@alluarjunonline @aliaabhatt @pankajtripathi @karanjohar @shreyaghoshal @thisisdsp.”

‘Mimi’ tells the story of a young woman who agrees to become a surrogate mother for a foreign couple, hoping to use the money to fulfil her dream of becoming an actor. However, the biological parents back out when they learn that the baby will be born with Down syndrome. Mimi then decides to raise the child on her own and faces several challenges and societal pressures as a single mother.
Her journey as a mother and her struggles to provide for her child despite the odds made for a heartwarming and inspiring story, which resonated with the audience.
In the coming months, Kriti will be seen in the action-thriller ‘Ganapath: A Hero is Born’ opposite Tiger Shroff. She also has ‘The Crew’ and ‘Do Patti’ in her kitty.
