Ranveer Singh was adjudged the Best Actor
for his stupendous performance in 83. He was competing with Sidharth Malhotra (Shershaah), Vicky Kaushal (Sardar Udham), and Dhanush (Atrangi Re).
Malhotra fronted Shershaah was declared the Best Film. Ramprasad Ki Tehrvi, Rashmi Rocket, and Sardar Udham also earned nods in the coveted Best Film category.
Shershaah's unchallenged reign continued in
the Best Director category, with Vishnuvardhan picking up the Best Director Award for his Hindi directorial debut.
B Praak walked home with the Best Singer (Male) Award for Mann Bharryaa from Shershaah. The Best Singer (Female) Award
went to Asees Kaur for the love ballad Raataan Lambiyan, also from Shershaah.
Sardar Udham was chosen as the Best Film (Critics), while Kaushal's performance in
the same film won him the Best Actor (Critics) Award. Sardar Udham won in other categories, too.
