As for Shyam Benegal's tribute to Netaji, Bose - The Forgotten Hero, it won the National Award for Best Film on National Integration.

Movie-lovers can look forward to many more such excellent films from us. My hearty congratulations to Mr Benegal and Madhur for their brilliant work."

Benegal, on the other hand said, "I am delighted that Bose? has won the National Award for Best Film on National Integration, because of two reasons.
