Priyadarshan dismisses partisan charged

Head jury of National awards Priyadharshan dismissing the charges. said, 'I have heard of all that and I will answer it in a simple way. When Ramesh Sippy was jury head Amitabh Bachchan won. When Prakash Jha was head of jury, Ajay Devgn won'.

'So none questioned at that time. So why all these questions are cropping up today,' Priyadarshan said.

The filmmaker also clarified that Akshay's performance in Rustom and Airlift were considered by the jury during the selection process.

However, as only the name of one film could be mentioned, the list featured the courtroom drama Rustim , he said.

'Akshay was given the best actor on the basis of his performance in two films - Airlift and Rustom. It was the jury's decision. One performance was dramatic and one was realistic. But according to the rule book, only one film can be mentioned and Rustom was mentioned in the list. But the award recognises his performance in both the movies.'
