Bollywood's leading film awards, the Filmfare Awards, held its 57th edition on Sunday, in Mumbai.
The results, however, seem to suggest that box office performances and the awards rarely go hand-in-hand. Films from two of biggest males acts in the industry - Shah Rukh Khan ("Ra. One" and "Don 2: The King is Back") and Salman Khan ("Ready", "Bodyguard") which did well at the box office, failed to gather any significant acclaim at the event.
Interestingly, other big-name male actors - Aamir Khan and Saif Ali Khan - also came up empty, despite fielding successful films like "Dhobi Ghat" and "Aarakshan".
The big winner was Zoya Akhtar's "Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara" (ZNMD), which won seven titles, including those of Best Film, Best Director and Best Supporting Actor for Farhan Akhtar.
The lead honors went to Ranbir Kapoor and Vidya Balan, for "Rockstar" and "The Dirty Picture", respectively. Priyanka Chopra also struck gold, winning the Best Female Actor (Critics) award for "7 Khoon Maaf".
