Milky beauty, Tamannah Bhatia who won iconic Sridevi Award at Zee Apsara Awards recently, has now won the prestigious Dadasaheb Phalke Excellence Award for her outstanding performance in the blockbuster “Baahubali: The Beginning”. The prestigious Dadasaheb Phalke Award is India’s highest cinematic honour.
On the other side, Bollywood actress Anushka Sharma will also receive the Dadasaheb Phalke Excellence Award for her successful movies as a producer.

Anushka’s first three productions: NH 10, Phillauri and Pari showed their maturity in dabbling with three different genres – thriller, romance and horror.

Tamannah said, “I’ve grown up knowing what immense involvement Dadasaheb Phalke had enjoyed in Indian cinema. It’s such an honour to be conferred an award from the foundation.”
On the workside, Tamaanaah is currently busy in upcoming movie ‘Naa Nuvve’ in which Nandamuri Kalyanram is playing the lead role. She will also be seen in Telugu remake of Bollywood film ‘Queen’.
