Actress Priyanka Chopra, whose performance in 'Barfi!' was appreciated by the audience, is upset that the film did not get a single National award.

The winners of the 60th National Film Awards were announced here Monday.

"I am feeling bad that 'Barfi!' did not win National Award. But then it is up to the jury why they did not give the award," Priyanka told reporters here at the launch of her first item song 'Babli badmaash'.

'Barfi!' was a love story between a deaf and mute boy, played by Ranbir Kapoor, and an autistic girl, played by Priyanka.

Though the movie did not win a National Award, Priyanka is happy for her cousin Parineeti won a special mention for her performance in "Ishaqzaade".

"I am happy for her. Now in the Chopra family, there are two National Awards. The whole day, I had to explain what special mention means," said Priyanka.

    national awards consider originality above all which barfii lacked.no doubt acting in barfii was gr8 acting wise but ..was kind copy paste.

    so national awards have to maintain the fairness wrt to the quality of film to b awarded

    you can't make films with the greed of getting a national award or any awards . she should be happy that her acting was good and so was the film

    Sorry PC!! But I think the National Awards went to the most deserving people and according to me Barfi was good but not better than Gangs of Wasseypur or Paan Singh Tomar!
    I like you in Barfi though!Big smile
    Better luck next time!

    Barfi was a feel good movie with some great acting n music but it definitely wasnt national award material...the whole plot was illogical n a cut copy paste of large chunks of classic hollywood movies...watevr philosophy was portrayed doesnt happen in real life...honestly,kahani or english vinglish wud hav done better if it were up 4 d Oscars...4 d first tym in years i felt that the awards were given to those who truly deserved them...otherwise last year can u imagine?salman khan getting awars 4 dabang n saif ali khan 4 god-knows what!!!!

    I totally agree with PC..!! BARFI deserved all awards & not even ONE is given,.,.This si utter nonsense..!! I actually loved Kahani but now I am hating it bcoz its getting unnecessary attention..TOO MUCH I feel..!!Specially Vidya..(no doubt she is a great actress..BUT PC DESERVED it more this time..)
