Megastar Amitabh Bachchan starrer "Pink" -- which raked up discussions on crimes against women -- has won the Best Film on Social Issues at 64th National Film Awards, it was announced here on Friday.

Directed by Aniruddha Roy Chowdhury, the courtroom drama is a contemporary youth-centric film with a strong socially relevant message about the choices young women of today make and about respecting those. Its prime message was "no means no".

With a cast including Taapsee Pannu, Kirti Kulhari, Angad Bedi, Andrea Tariang, Piyush Mishra, and Dhritiman Chatterjee -- the movie was lauded for its impactful performances and strong message.

It tells a story about a girl named Minal, who after being molested, along with her friends, tries to file an FIR against a politician's nephew. When the subsequent case gets rigged, Deepak, a retired lawyer, helps them to fight the case.

The powerful dialogues and strong screenplay were appreciated by the audience and the critics alike.

This apart, Sonam Kapoor starrer "Neerja" won the Best Hindi Film Award, while actor Akshay Kumar was chosen for the Best Actor honour for the film "Rustom".
