Actress Vidya Balan had got the recognition she deserved. After winning Zee Cine Awards for the best actress for both popular category and jury category she won the filmfare award 2012 also for the performance in the film Dirty Picture.
In the male category, Ranbir Kapoor won the filmfare award for the best actor for the performance in the film Rockstar. He won it against the other nominees Salman Khan in Bodyguard and Shahrukh Khan in Don 2. Composition of music in the film Rockstar earned AR Rehman his filmfare award for 2012.
Zoya Akhtar won the best director award for the film Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara. Rani Mukherjee won the best supporting actress award for her performance in the film No One Killed Jessica. Farhan Akhtar won the best supporting actor award for the performance in the film Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara. Mohit Chauhan won the best singer male award for the song “jo vi mai” in the film Rockstar. Usha Utthup and Rekha Bhardwaj won the best singer female award for the song “ankho se” in the film Saat Khoon Maaf. Aruna Irani received lifetime achievement award for her contribution in hindi cinema.
It is strange that Bodyguard was not considered for awards inspite of the film doing business worth 160 crores. Neither Salman Khan won the best actor award, nor Kareena Kapoor won the best actress award, nor Shreya Ghoshal won the best singer award for “teri meri” song, nor Siddique received the best director award. Ranbir Kapoor and Shahrukh Khan hosted the award.
