The 66th National Film Awards were announced on Friday, by Rahul Rawail, head of the Jury. While Tamil cinema has once again missed getting any reorganization, Telugu, Malayalam, and Kannada film industries have bagged more than fifteen awards at the 66th National Film Awards. While the National Film Awards’ winners list is receiving mixed reactions, jury head Rahul took to Facebook after being trolled by Mammootty fans. Fans of Mammootty expected to witness a big win of the best actor award for his splendid portrayal of Amudhavan in the Tamil film, Peranbu. Fans of the Malayalam star trolled jury head for not giving an award to their favourite actor.

In the post, Rahul clarified, "Message sent by me, as Chairman of the Jury of 66th NFA, to Mammooty: ‘Hi Mr.Mammoty. There has been a lot of 'hate mail', that to extremely nasty, that I have been receiving from your fans, or so called fan clubs, as to why you were not given the National Award as Best Actor for the film 'Peranbo'. Let me set the record straight: Firstly, NOBODY HAS THE RIGHT TO QUESTION A JURY DECISION. Secondly, your film 'Peerambu' had been REJECTED by the Regional Panel and hence did not contend in the Central Panel. Your fans and/or devotees should stop fighting a lost cause. ‘Never question a Jury!" (sic)

Rahul also shared Mammootty's response: “Reply from Mammootty: ‘Sorry sir. I have no knowledge about it. Still, I apologize for what had happened’.(sic)"
