Mumbai: As Mumbai gears up to host the Filmfare Awards night Saturday, most Bollywood celebrities feel Zoya Akhtar`s ‘Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara’ will walk away with the best film trophy.

Among the other films competing in the category are ‘Rockstar’, ‘The Dirty Picture’, ‘Don 2: The King is Back’, ‘No One Killed Jessica’ and ‘Delhi Belly’.

There`s still time for the final winners to be announced, but when celebrities were asked to make their pick at the Filmfare Awards nomination party Friday night, most gave a thumbs-up to Zoya Akhtar`s film ‘Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara’.

Here`s what some of them had to say:

Farhan Akhtar: The best film doesn`t really matter when the producers are the same (for `Zindagi Na...` and `Don 2: The King Is Back`). I hope Zoya wins for ‘Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara’.

Madhur Bhandarkar: There were a lot of films but ‘Zindagi na Milegi dobara’ was one film I really loved. It was appreciated by all and people loved it. In terms of performance also, Hrithik, Farhan and Abhay did a tremendous job.

Dia Mirza: ‘Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara’ for me is one of the nicest films that I have seen. I can rate it as one my all-time favourite.

Filmmaker Imtiaz Ali, whose film ‘Rockstar’ is also in the race, and Goldie Behl also gave their vote to Zoya Akhtar`s road-trip based film, which also featured Katrina Kaif and Kalki Koechlin.

The 57th Filmfare Awards will be given out on Jan 29 at the Film City in Goregaon, Mumbai.
