Rani Mukerji bags the National Award, the actress could not be more proud for she is honoured with such a prestigious award whose past awardees include Anna Hazare, Pratibha Patil, Pandit Jasraj and Mahashweta Devi.
Rani said, "It's really heartening to see that not only has the film been loved by audiences worldwide, but it has transcended the realm of filmmaking and become something that inspires the people who have been tirelessly working for years for the cause of child trafficking, and are the real heroes."
She further added, "I feel humbled to meet these people and I am glad that I am able to contribute in a small way. This award is special as it recognises my contribution to cinema in a different manner."
Sreerupa Mitra Chaudhury, Chairperson National Institute for Gender Justice spoke about Rani saying, "The powerful and fearless performance of Rani Mukerji in Mardaani idealises the role of police in prevention of crime against women, especially trafficking of girl child for commercial sexual exploitation. I feel she symbolizes the pride of uniform and inspires change. That's the reason we decided to felicitate her for excellence in artistic performance."
