(MENAFN -Arab News) MUMBAI: Bollywood stars Deepika Padukone and Farhan Akhtar were the big winners of Filmfare Awards 2014, which was held in Mumbai on Friday. Director Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra’s biopic “Bhaag Milkha Bhaag” starring Akhtar as the ‘Flying Sikh’ bagged the top awards including best actor, best director and best film


Mehra recalled his previous walk down the red carpet with his first film, the Amitabh Bachchan starrer “Aks.&rdquo


“Winning a Filmfare is such a proud moment. In fact Amitabh Bachchan had recalled during ‘Aks’ how he used to join the crowd outside Shanmukhananda Hall in the ‘60s just to watch the stars arrive for the awards,” he said, as per a report in Times of India


Mehra also said that he welcomed criticism, referring to the 1-2 odd reports that surfaced earlier questioning the film’s authenticity. “I welcome criticism, it is always better than exaggerated praise and points a mirror to your faults,” he said


Padukone took home the best actress trophy for her performance in the film, “Ram Leela,” directed bySanjay Leela Bhansali




Dhanush, whose performance in “Raanjhanaa” won him the best debut award, said earlier on the red carpet, “It feels good to be nominated at Bollywood's biggest award ceremony. But honestly I don't expect to win.” Even though Shahrukh Khan’s 2013 super hit “Chennai Express” didn’t get any of the popular awards, it did manage to bag the Sony Trendsetter of the Year Award. Previously, Ranbir Kapoor starrer “Barfi” had won this award


“Chennai Express” was nominated in most top categories categories including best film, director (Rohit Shetty), actor (male and female) and music. Other films which received the maximum nominations were “Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani,” “Ramleela,” “Raanjhanaa,” “Kai Po Che,” “Aashiqui 2,” “Krrish 3” and last year’s sleeper hit, “The Lunchbox.&rdquo


The show’s top highlights including on-stage performances by Ranveer Singh, Shahid Kapoor, Madhuri Dixit and Katrina Kaif. The event was hosted by Priyanka Chopra and Ranbir Kapoor.
