On the other hand, actress Vidya Balan continued her winning streak by picking up the award for best actress in a leading role for ‘The Dirty Picture’. She emerged victorious among Priyanka Chopra, Kareena Kapoor, Mahie Gill and Kangna Ranaut.

Filmmaker Ramesh Sippy was honoured at the gala for his outstanding contribution to Indian cinema, while veteran actress Zohra Segal received a special award for her contribution to 100 years of Indian cinema, though she couldn`t make it to the event.
