Filmmaker Jayaraj, who attended the National awards ceremony with a few others including singer K J Yesudas, has criticized the action of those who boycotted the event. According to him they should return the prize money that has already been credited to the accounts of the winners.

Filmmaker Lijo Jose Pellissery said in his Facebook post that the award which was discarded by the artistes, now has no real value.

All the major channels discussed the controversy but the notable comment came from director Major Ravi, who reportedly blamed Union Minister Smriti Irani for the whole issue.
