Stardust Awards 2014 : List of winners & more

After the magnificent work produced in 2014 from Bollywood, it’s time to award and credit all the hard work that was put in. From the people in front of the camera to the people behind it. For 2014, the Stardust Awards teamed up with Colors and Sansui after discontinuing their partnership with Sony Max. Their 25 categories celebrate the best and most promising of the film community. The annual Searchlight Stardust Awards began in 2003 and are the only award function that focuses on applauding and commending the new upcoming talent of Bollywood.

Stardust Awards Hosts of this year were everyone’s favourite chat-show host and director, Karan Johar and comedy actor, Ritesh Deshmukh. Both known to be great presenters, and with Ritesh’s impeccable comic timing, both personalities brought an interesting twist to the event. Karan was also later joined by Saif Ali Khan to offer more hilarious entertainment to the star-studded audience. Along with a glamorous red carpet, no Indian awards ceremony would be complete without some scorching performances from Bollywood’s elite. Performing on the night were the likes of Parineeti Chopra, and Madhuri Dixit who danced to popular Disco Hits. Arjun Kapoor and Kareena Kapoor also took to the stage, but all eyes were on Shahrukh Khan’s grand entrance, which as expected led to a spectacular performance. Shahrukh celebrated the success of Happy New Year, which won ‘Film of the Year’, while Farah Khan took the ‘Dream Director’ award. King Khan himself reigned supreme with ‘Best Actor – Thriller/Action’ and the ‘Star of the Year’ award. The ‘Star Of The Year’ certainly grabbed a lot of attention, especially as the nominations included both Shahrukh Khan for Happy New Year and Salman Khan for Kick. If the two stars weren’t in conflict already, the award was definitely a surprise for both SRK and Salman fans.

With so many female oriented films seeing commercial and critical success in 2014, all eyes were on the ‘Female’ categories, and the women of Bollywood certainly didn’t disappoint. Kangana Ranaut took the ‘Searchlight Best Actress’ award for her brilliant performance in Queen which not only got her critical but commercial success, but also entered the 100 crore club. Queen deservedly won the ‘Searchlight Best Film’ award as well as the ‘Best Director’ award for Vikas Bahl who shared it with Imtiaz Ali (Highway). Priyanka Chopra took the ‘Best Actress – Drama’ award for her action packed performance in Mary Kom, one of her most gruelling roles to date, as she had to get into the skin of the character by changing her physique. British talent Kanika Kapoor also stole the show with ‘Best Playback Singer – Female’. The singer who made a banging entry into the Bollywood industry was nominated for her smash hit ‘Baby Doll’ and new dance anthem ‘Lovely’. Both songs which stormed the music charts gave her a slight upper hand over her opponents. Here is the list of winners of the Sansui Colors Stardust Awards 2014:
