65th National Awards: Sridevi wins best actress, Village Rockstars, Baahubali 2, Newton win big

While Ghazi won the Best Telugu film award, Baahubali 2: The Conclusion bagged the Best Action-direction, Best Special Effects and Best Popular Film Providing Wholesome Entertainment awards.

"The joy of Baahubali has been going on for last five-six years — from the shooting process to the box office success. It has really brought in spectacle cinema in a big way in India," Daggubati said in a statement.

"Ghazi is one of the films that I am really very proud of because there was a lot of resistance when I was trying to make the film. There is no love story, song dance sequence that we have in regular Telugu film. But it did well at the box office in all languages — Telugu, Hindi and has now won a National award. I did a big film and an alternate genre film and both have got their merit so it's great," he added.
