The officials of Fox Star Studios must be walking down the streets of Bollywood with their chest high up, courtesy Neerja! With the film bagging the National Award for the best film, they have become the first production house to bag three of them consecutively!
The last two times the production house had bagged in the black lady for Jolly LLB(2014) and Tamil movie Kaaka Muttai(2015)
In response, a humbled Vijay Singh, CEO of Fox Star Studios says ”It is a huge honour to have got this incredible recognition from the National Awards. Fox Star Studios is thrilled that our three of our productions : Neerja, Jolly LLB, and Kaaka Muttai have won the Best Film Award at the National Awards. It’s hugely exciting & humbling that we are now the only Studio to have won three National Awards in the Best Film category. This recognition gives us further confidence to back great stories and push the envelope on content. As a Studio we are committed to creating content that not only entertain audiences but also leaves a message and makes us proud of our heritage & culture!”
Well, three cheers for Fox Star Studios!
