"Thank you to each one of you for the congratulatory messages you sent. I accept this Maharashtra State honour bestowed on me, in all humility," Bhandarkar tweeted.

The recent award has added another achievement to Bhandarkar's credit. He has so far received four National Awards for his films "Chandni Bar", "Page 3", "Fashion" and "Traffic Signal".
