BEST FILM DANGAL

To leagues of many movie buffs, Dangal was the film of the year. This Aamir Khan film based on the life and times of wrestler and coach Mahavir Singh Phogat hit all the right notes. The portrayal of medal winning wrestlers Geeta and Babita Phogat and their inspirational stories was truly gold. Winner
BEST DIRECTOR NITESH TIWARI
Movie - DANGAL

Directing Aamir Khan is no mean feat. To add to that, Dangal was in the making for almost 2 years. Nitesh Tiwari got the right pulse of this biographical movie on Mahavir Singh Phogat and his daughters Geeta and Babita. His treatment, his visuals and his choice of scenes were pure perfection. Winner
BEST ACTOR IN A LEADING ROLE (MALE) AAMIR KHAN
Movie - DANGAL

Aamir Khan was the strength, conviction, dedication and genius of Dangal. His performance was a lot more complex than just the striking physical transformation.

BEST ACTOR IN A LEADING ROLE (FEMALE) ALIA BHATT
Movie - UDTA PUNJAB

Udta Punjab was a film that belonged to Alia Bhatt. Her character not kept you intrigued right to the end, and her performance was well beyond her years. Many movie gurus thought that her act in this drug charged movie was easily her best to date. Winner
BEST ACTOR IN A SUPPORTING ROLE (MALE) RISHI KAPOOR
Movie - KAPOOR & SONS

The show stealer of Kapoor & Sons was Rishi Kapoor. Acting under prosthetics and heavy makeup, he let his eyes do the talking and his senile but colourful act made you both laugh and cry. His act in Kapoor & Sons was truly its strength. Winner
BEST ACTOR IN A SUPPORTING ROLE (FEMALE) SHABANA AZMI
Movie - NEERJA

The speech that Shabana Azmi gives as Neerja's mother at the braveheart's commemorative function was the soul of the film. She was pitch perfect as a concerned mother and one wishes more good roles get written for her. Winner
BEST MUSIC ALBUM PRITAM
Movie - AE DIL HAI MUSHKIL

BEST LYRICS AMITABH BHATTACHARYA
Movie - AE DIL HAI MUSHKIL

BEST PLAYBACK SINGER (MALE) ARIJIT SINGH
Movie - AE DIL HAI MUSHKIL
Song - AE DIL HAI MUSHKIL

Whatever Arijit sings nowadays turns to gold and this title song is no exception. He sang it with charismatic ease and again underlined the fact as to why music composers are lining up to hire him. Winner
BEST PLAYBACK SINGER (FEMALE) NEHA BHASIN
Movie - SULTAN
Song - JAG GHOOMEYA

It's hard to compete with Rahat Fateh Ali Khan, who had sung the male version of the song. But Neha took to the challenge and sang her heart out, thereby providing the listeners with some goose bumps inducing vocals. Winner
