In a delirious Best Actor (Male) race that was wide open this year, Gajraj Rao came out on top and took home the News18 REEL Movie Award for Amit Sharma's comedy drama Badhaai Ho. Rao outclassed fellow nominees Manoj Bajpayee (Gali Guleiyan), Ayushmann Khurrana (AndhaDhun), Vicky Kaushal (Manmarziyaan) and Vineet Kumar Singh (Mukkabaaz) to take home the honour. Rao's spectacular performance as Mr. Kaushik, a middle-aged man who grapples with unexpected parenthood, is truly one of 2018's best showing. In addition to Rao's win for Best Actor, Badhaai Ho earned REEL Movie Awards for Best Screenplay and Supporting Actor (Female) for Surekha Sikri.
