Just like we speculated, Shahrukh Khan did not win the Best Actor trophy this year at the 59th Filmfare Awards. In fact, he did not even win a special award, which usually happens when he is not winning the main award. But his film Chennai Express did win the Trendsetter of the Year – whatever that means.
So it was Farhan Akhtar who took away the glory this year at the Filmfares for Bhaag Milkha Bhaag. The biopic was also adjudged the Best Film. And as we predicted, Dhanush did win the Black Lady, but as Best Debut (Male) for Raanjhanaa. Not a bad start for the south actor.
Deepika Padukone won the Best Actress award for Goliyon Ki Raasleela Ram-Leela. It looks like she’s going to take home all the awards this year. The Lifetime Achievement Award went to Tanuja, who was appreciated for her performance in her recent Marathi film Pitruroon. Singer Siddharth Mahadevan won the RD Burman Award for Bhaag Milkha Bhaag.
