For that matter, Shahrukh Khan is the best example who has won the famous Filmfare Best Actor Award so for seven times, but is yet to win the coveted National Film Award.

At the 53rd National Film Awards, the award for the best film critic went to BITSian Baradwaj Rangan (Baddy). During his stay at Pilani from August 1988 to June 1992 as a student, Baddy must have seen about 200 films in various languages in the grand auditorium of the Institute and built up the passion to be a name to reckon with in the film industry.

After getting a Chemical Engineering degree from BITS, Pilani, Baradwaj Rangan (Baddy) had a copywriting stint at J Walter Thompson, Chennai and then took off to Marquette University, Milwaukee for a Master’s degree in Advertising and Public Relations.
