With the whole FTII row going on, many filmmakers like Dibakar Banerjee have returned their National Awards in solidarity with the protesting students. But one award winner refuses to return hers and she is Vidya Balan.

Balan said,

This honour (the award) is by the nation and not the government. So I do not want to return it.

Vidya had won her National Award for The Dirty Picture in 2012.
