As the nominations for the eighth edition of the Renault Star Guild Apsara Awards 2013 are announced, all eyes are now set on the final results. Who do you think should walk away with the desirable trophy…in which category?

The Apsara Awards 2013 is certainly going to bigger than all other such events this season, what with Salman Khan agreeing to host the evening. The ultra-glam do will see the presence of the who’s who of Bollywood vying for the prestigious honour of being the best in their field. It will certainly be a night to remember, as the red carpet will be rolled out at Yash Raj studios, Mumbai, on February 16, 2013.

  • Shaykell

    Vidya Balan should win best actress, yet again. She was brilliant in Kahaani. Yes, Priyanka was fantastic in Barfi!, too, but one can’t deny how Vidya single-handedly carried the movie on her shoulders, without any other leading actor. She was the hero of the film and she portrayed her character effortlessly. The entire film was to be brought forth by her performance and she nailed it. Priyanka on the other hand shared equal time space with Ranbir and Ileana. It’s only fair if Vidya takes the cake for this season of award ceremonies or they both tie. Nevertheless, good luck to both and I hope they continue to make wonderful films like they always have.

  • Rajshree

    Obviously Shahrukh Khan best actor and maintaining the title of king of bollywood

  • ali


    • Suleman

      Why and on what grounds? Only because he is your favourite actor doesn’tm mean he deserves an award. It is obvious that Ranbir will win like in every other award function held this year. Irfan Khan, Hrithik are also worthy candidates though and much more deserving that your king of bollywood. Even popularity wise Salman Khan has outshone Sharukh in last 3 years at the box office.

  • Maya Gill

    BEST SUPPORTING ACTOR- Nawazuddin Siddiqui

  • Karina

    Best Debut: Diana Penty
