Sujoy won the award for Best Original Screenplay for Kahaani. Best Editing award went to Namrata Rao for the same film, while a special jury award was given to actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui. "I am very much happy winning the award. It is a huge honour. I am still trying to absorb that we have won the award. The feeling is yet to sink in," Sujoy told PTI.
"Now I feel there is more responsibility on me as a director. Somebody is putting trust and responsibility on you and I will continue to give my best and work hard," he said. Vidya Balan starrer Kahaani has swept several awards earlier across various categories. "I had not expected that we could get national award for the film. As this time the competition was quite tough...there were lot of other good films made last year. We did not hope to win it," Sujoy said.
"Now Kahaani 2 has to be a huge...big film. And I will make it only when we have a really good script in place. Till we are not sure and satisfied about the storyline we will not go ahead," Sujoy added.
