Mumbai: Alia Bhatt and Arjun Kapoor starer romantic comedy '2 States' is leading the 60th Filmfare Awards with seven nominations, followed by Kangana Ranaut's comedy drama 'Queen' which has been named in five different categories.

The sleeper hits of 2014 have left behind big-budget blockbusters 'PK', 'Happy New Year' and 'Kick'.

'2 States' has been nominated in various categories, including Best Film, Best Director, Best Actor in a Supporting Role (Male), Best Actor in a Supporting Role (Female), Best Music and Best Playback Singer (Male).

On the other hand, Kangana's "Queen" stands a chance to win in categories including Best Film, Best Director, Best Actor in a Leading Role (Female), Best Actor in a Supporting Role (Female) and Best Music.

Apart from "Queen" and "2 States", the Best Film category includes "Mary Kom", "Haider" and "PK".

Abhishek Varman ("2 States"), Anurag Kashyap ("Ugly"), Rajkumar Hirani ("PK"), Vikas Bahl ("Queen") and Vishal Bhardwaj ("Haider") are in the race for the Best Director title.

Despite striking gold at the box office with "Kick" and "Happy New Year", Bollywood's leading Khans - Salman and Shah Rukh - have been neglected in the Best Actor in a Leading Role category. However, Aamir Khan is nominated for his satirical comedy-drama "PK" alongside Akshay Kumar ("Holiday"), Hrithik Roshan ("Bang Bang!"), Randeep Hooda ("Rang Rasiya") and Shahid Kapoor ("Haider").

Actresses Alia Bhatt ("Highway"), Kangana Ranaut ("Queen"), Madhuri Dixit ("Dedh Ishqiya"), Priyanka Chopra ("Mary Kom"), Rani Mukerji ("Mardaani") and Sonam Kapoor ("Khoobsurat") are competing for the Best Actress trophy.

In Best Actor in a Supporting Role (Male) category, Abhishek Bachchan ("Happy New Year"), Kay Kay Menon ("Haider"), Riteish Deshmukh ("Ek Villain"), Ronit Roy ("2 States") and Tahir Raj Bhasin ("Mardaani") have been nominated.

The competition for the Supporting Actress accolades will be between Amrita Singh ("2 States"), Dimple Kapadia ("Finding Fanny"), Juhi Chawla ("Gulaab Gang"), Lisa Haydon ("Queen") and Tabu ("Haider").

Although music maestro A.R. Rahman has not been included for Best Music category, there is a tough fight between Amit Trivedi ("Queen"), Anupam Amod, Arko Pravo Mukherjee, Yo Yo Honey Singh, Mithoon and Pritam ("Yaariyan"), Himesh Reshammiya, Meet Bros Anjjan and Yo Yo Honey Singh ("Kick"), Mithoon, Ankit Tiwari and SOCH ("Ek Villain") and Shankar-Eshaan-Loy ("2 States").

For Best Lyrics, this year Amitabh Bhattacharya for "Zehnaseeb" ("Hasee Toh Phasee"), Gulzar for "Bismil" ("Haider"), Irshad Kamil for "Patakha guddi" ("Highway"), Kausar Munir for "Suno na sangemarmar" ("Youngistaan") and Rashmi Singh for "Muskurane ki wajah" ("CityLights") will be competing with each other.

Singer Ankit Tiwari for "Galliyan" ("Ek Villain"), Arijit Singh for "Mast magan" ("2 States") and "Suno na sangemarmar" ("Youngistaan"), Benny Dayal for "Locha-E-Ulfat" ("2 States") and Shekhar Ravjiani for "Zehnaseeb" ("Hasee Toh Phasee") are in the race for Best Playback Singer (Male) category.

For the same award in female category, Jyoti Nooran and Sultana Nooran for "Patakha guddi" ("Highway"), Kanika Kapoor for "Baby doll" ("Ragini MMS 2"), Rekha Bhardwaj for "Humari atariya pe" ("Dedh Ishqiya"), Shreya Ghoshal for "Manwa lage" ("Happy New Year") and Sona Mahapatra for "Naina" ("Khoobsurat") have been nominated.
