Patekar was awarded for the Hindi films Parinda (1989)[b] and Agni Sakshi (1996).[6] Kapur received the awards for his work in the Hindi films Raakh (1988) and Maqbool (2003).[7] Kulkarni was awarded for his performances in the Tamil / Hindi film Hey Ram (1999) and the Hindi film Chandni Bar (2001).[8] Paresh Rawal and Dilip Prabhavalkar have each won the award for two performances in a single year. Rawal received the award for his starring roles in the Hindi films Woh Chokri (1993) and Sir (1993) at the 41st National Film Awards, while Prabhavalkar won at the 54th National Film Awards for his performances in the Hindi film Lage Raho Munna Bhai (2006) and the Marathi film Shevri (2006).[9] At the 42nd National Film Awards, the award was tied between Ashish Vidyarthi and Nagesh, winning for their roles in the Hindi film Drohkaal (1994) and the Tamil film Nammavar (1994), respectively.[10] The most recent recipient of the award is Fahadh Faasil, who earned the award at the 65th National Film Awards ceremony for his performance in the Malayalam film Thondimuthalum Driksakshiyum (2017).
