Filmfare awards: 3 Idiots wins six, Paa best actors
3 Idiots hauled six awards including best film, director and story, while the Amitabh Bachchan starrer Paa took home the awards for best actor in a leading role, male and female at the 55th Idea Filmfare Awards

THE 55TH Idea Filmafare Awards concluded in a star studded evening today, with 3 Idiots hauling most of the awards while the Amitabh Bachchan starrer Paa took home the awards for best actor in a leading role, male and female.

The sheer number of awards that the Rajkumar Hirani film starring Aamir Khan took included Best Film, Best Director, Best Supporting Actor (Male), Best Dialouge, Best Screenplay and Best story.

Some other films scored multiple awards at the 55th Idea Filmfare awards. Dev D recieved Best Supporting Actor (Female), Critics award Best Actor (Female), Best Production Design, Best Cinematographer and Best Background score. Meanwhile, the music catagory was dominated by Delhi 6, which got awards for Best Music, Best Playback Singer (Female) and Best Playback Singer (Male).

The evening was made all the more fun by Shah Rukh Khan and Saif Ali Khan, who ensured that the audience was in splits. Shah Rukh Khan turned into a shark while Saif Ali Khan enjoyed dressing up as a chicken, Masakalli from Delhi 6 and even lady love Kareena Kapoor.

The Bachchan family was noteable for its absence from the event. The family boycotted the event after a tabloid published a false report regarding Aishwariya Rai Bachchan's health. The tabloid belongs to the same publishing as Filmfare, long time organisers for the awards.
