Shahrukh Khan and Vidya Balan bagged 'Anandalok Puraskar' for the
Best Male and Female actor for their performances in Chak De India
and Bhool Bhulaiyaa respectively for the year 2007. Shimit Amin
also shared the honour for having been felicitated the Best
Director Award for Chak De India.
Vidya Balan has won this award for the second time as it was her
first film in Bengali titled Bhalo Theko for which she won the best
female actor in 'Anandalok Puraskar' in 2005. Vidya says,
"'Anandalok Puraskar' was the very first award of my career even
before I was awarded the Best Debut for Parineeta. Bengali cinema
has been very kind to me and winning this award for the second time
means a lot to me as an actress."
further adds, "This award set as a precedent and a lot of
acclamation came my way, inshallah (by the grace of God), this
again will set as a precedent and I hope for lot of success coming
my way in future as well."
Vidya's much awaited film, Halla Bol, is all set to hit the
silver screen early next year on Jan 11.
