Filmfare Awards 2011: Ranbir Kapoor, Vidya Balan win Best Actor Awards

Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara, Delhi Belly, The Dirty Picture and Rockstar garnered multiple awards

The 57th Filmfare Awards were announced yesterday (January 29) at Film City with Ranbir Kapoor and Shahrukh Khan as hosts. Ranbir’s film Rockstar went on to win five trophies – including Best Music for AR Rahman, and Best Actor in a Leading Role (Male) and Critics’ Award for Best Actor for the Kapoor lad. Vidya Balan didn’t have the same luck. While she walked away with the Best Actor in a Leading Role (Female) Award for The Dirty Picture, Priyanka Chopra bagged the Critics’ Award for Best Actress for her performance in 7 Khoon Maaf. Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara, which has not been favoured much at other award functions so far, emerged the top winner with seven trophies – both the popular and critics’ Best Film awards, Best Director for Zoya Akhtar, Best Dialogue and Best Actor in a Supporting Role (Male) for Farhan Akhtar, Best Choreographer for Bosco-Caesar and Best Cinematography for Carlos Catalan.

After a long time, the Lifetime Achievement Award went to an actor known for portraying more supporting roles than lead roles – Aroona Irani. Meanwhile, Delhi Belly returned a winner too with four awards – Best Screenplay for Akshat Verma, Best Debutant Director for Abhinay Deo (looks like everyone is happy forgetting about Game), Best Editing for Huzefa Lokhandwala and Best Art Direction for Shashank Tere.
