Over 50 National Award winners boycott awards ceremony

Over 50 winners boycotted the 65th National Film Awards ceremony on Thursday, upset with President Ram Nath Kovind presenting awards to only 11 awardees and attending the event for an hour. Around 120 winners wrote a letter in protest, to which the President's office responded saying President Kovind always allots only one hour to award ceremonies of whichever nature.
