Mumbai , March 30 (IANS) Mini Mathur is a proud wife as her husband-filmmaker Kabir Khan’s directorial “Bajrangi Bhaijaan” has been named the Best Popular Film Providing Wholesome Entertainment at the 63rd National Film Awards. The popular anchor says it’s a true appreciation for the film.
“I am very happy as I feel that a National Award is such a big deal, simply because it is one award which doesn’t come in the form of TV shows. It’s an event in itself.”

I am very happy and proud that I was a part of it and Kabir is somebody who is to be credited (for its success),” Mini told IANS on the sidelines of the opening day of the Summer-Resort edition of Lakme Fashion Week here on Wednesday.
