Prakash Raj's film "Wild Karnataka" won the National Award in the "Best Exploration Film" at the 67th National Film Awards on Monday. The actor was the narrator in the documentary film and is elated with the achievement.

"Being a part of the vision that brought to life the ‘Wild Karnataka' documentary was truly a beautiful experience. A culmination of four years and almost 500 hours of footage, it was an absolute pleasure to be the voice, narrating this extraordinary story in my language, Tamil and Telugu, of the exquisite outback of Karnataka, one of the last places in the world where big wild animals can roam safely. I've always loved nature, it's something that keeps me rooted which made me proud to have been a part of this project and I'm grateful to the Discovery team for trusting me to be its voice. I congratulate the producers, award-winning filmmakers Amoghavarsha JS and Kalyan Varma on this fantastic win at the 67th National Film Awards," Raj said.

Actor Satish Kaushik's film "Chhoriyan Chhoron Se Kam Hoti" won the National Award for "Best Harayanvi Film''. Even though he is currently under treatment for Covid, the senior actor expressed his joy through a statement.
