The actor’s film Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara won more awards than SRK’s RA.One
The 13th International Indian Film Academy (IIFA) Awards will be held in Singapore this year from June 7-9. While the nominations for the main categories were announced a few days ago, the awards in the technical category have already been declared.
But believe it or not, Shahrukh Khan’s sci-fi adventure film RA.One – touted to be the frontrunner for its special effects – has not won more awards than Hrithik Roshan’s Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara. Directed by Zoya Akhtar, Zindagi… garnered five awards, including Best Cinematography, Best Editing and Best Screenplay, while SRK’s film got four awards including one in the Special Effects (Visuals) category. Vidya Balan’s The Dirty Picture is No.3 with three awards, including Costume Designing. AR Rahman won for best Background Score for Rockstar. The winners will be handed over the trophies in Singapore.

Meanwhile, we hear that the cool Shahid Kapoor might just replace Riteish Deshmukh and Boman Irani as IIFA Awards 2012 host. Will you miss Boman and Riteish, or would you rather watch Shahid? Also, we wonder whether Shahid will have the company of Priyanka Chopra, especially since they have a new film, Teri Meri Kahaani to promote!
