South diva Keerthy Suresh, Bollywood heartthrobs Vicky Kaushal, Ayushmann Khurrana and Akshay Kumar among others graced the event, where Vice President Venkiah Naidu gave away the prestigious honour. While Vicky and Ayushmann bagged the Best Actor Award for Uri: The Surgical Strike and AndhaDhun respectively, Keerthy won the Best Actress Award for her performance as Savithri in the Telugu film Mahanati.
The talented actress graced the event in a simple, yet stunning Sabyasachi saree paired with a full-sleeved floral blouse. She complimented her outfit with heavy eye make-up, dark lips and an elegant hair-do with gajra. She topped the look with ornate jhumkas!
Reacting to her big win, the actress had posted on Twitter: "First and foremost, I would like to thank each and every member from the press and media fraternity. They have been the early ones to strongly affirm that our film 'Mahanati' will get its due honours with their positive reviews and unconditional appreciations."
