Best Actor (Female) - Deepika Padukone for Piku: She braved to be a part of a content driven film like Piku -a film which did not demand her to look sexy or do an item number but just play ordinary urban woman. She managed to shine and matched up to Bachchan and Irrfan Khan’s skills in almost every frame making the film and her character the most loved this year. Best Actor (Male) - Ranveer Singh for Bajirao Mastani: He has come a long way from playing Bittu Sharma in 'Band Baaja Baraat' to the regal Peshwa in 'Bajiaro Mastani'. What a transformation and not a single slip from the character throughout the film.
Best Film: Bajrangi Bhaijaan – The Salman Khan starrer delivered a beautiful message of communal harmony and entertained everyone. Kudos to the film's director Kabir Khan who simplified the entire complexities of Indo-Pak and presented it so innocently.
Best Actor in Supporting Role (Female) - Priyanka Chopra for Bajirao Mastani : Her demure looks and powerful performance made her the deserving winner .
Best Director - Sanjay Leela Bhansali for Bajirao Mastani: There are a few things one has come to take for granted in a Sanjay Leela Bhansali film: a stunning visual aesthetic, immaculately choreographed songs, and an imposing sense of scale. One couldn't help being overwhelmed by Sudeep Chatterjee’s eye-watering frames, and the elegant production design. Bhansali delivered a film that’s artistic, grand and compelling at the same time.
Best Actor in Supporting Role (Male) - Anil Kapoor for Dil Dhadakne Do: He was quirky, witty and temperamental. Frankly, nobody could have played the role of Priyanka-Ranveer’s father better than him.
Best Debut Couple: Sooraj Pancholi and Athiya Shetty for Hero: Sooraj Pancholi and Athiya Shetty were amazing in their Bollywood debut.
Best Playback Singer (Male): Papon for Moh Moh Ke Dhaage: Considering the impact that the song left on everybody, Papon was expected to win an award.
Best Debut Actor (Male) - Vicky Kaushal for Masaan: His performance had right emotions and right impact in his Bollywood debut.
Best Performance in Comic Role - Deepak Dobriyal for Tanu Weds Manu Returns: One person who has managed to sway the audience time and again with his brilliant comic timing is Deepak Dobriyal. Playing the role of Pappi ji in this film, he has not only been applauded for his performance but has left an indelible mark on the hearts of thousands of viewers. While the lead actors Kangana Ranaut and R Madhavan did a fabulous job, he managed to dig a special place as Pappi Ji in the minds of movie buffs.
Best Debut Actor (Female): Bhumi Pednekar for Dum Laga Ke Haisha - Shlok Sharma's Dum Lagake Haisha worked not just because of an amazing script but also because of the confident performance of its lead actress, Bhumi Pednekar. She played an unconventional heroine but nailed the small town girl's character with absolute ease.
Best Playback Singer (Female): Monali Thakur for Moh Moh Ke Dhaage (Dum Laga Ke Haisha) – We all loved the female version as much as its male version. Right?
