Supriya Pathak won the Best Actor in a Supporting Role Award in Filmfare Awards 2014. She arrived with her husband Pankaj Kapoor who also was nominated for the Best Actor in a Supporting Role Award but lost out to Nawazuddin Siddiqui. His fabulous performance in The Lunchbox earned Nawazuddin Siddiqui this prestigious Filmfare Award.
It is interesting to know that both Pankaj Kapoor and wife
Supriya are nominated respectively for best male actor in a
supporting role and best female actor in a supporting role.
Nawazuddin Siddiqui made the industry felt his presence in B town
through Anurag Kashyap's Gangs of Wasseypur.
Supriya Pathak, a great actor who did iconic films like
Raakh and Sarkar, already has two filmfare awards
in her kitty. While Shyam Benegal's corporate saga Kalyug fetched
her best supporting female actor award in 1982, Bazaar earned her
another award in 1983. Her realistic act in Ram Gopal Varma's
magnum opus Sarkar was highly appreciated. She played the
wife of Amitabh Bachchan's Subhash Nagre in the film.
Pankaj Kapoor, on the other hand, has delivered excellent performances in films like Raakh, Abba Ji and Maqbool. The thespian, who also happens to be the brother in law of Naseeruddin shah, is a three time National Award Winner. Media pampers him by calling ‘the walking acting school'. Compared to him, the winner Nawazuddin Siddiqui is starting his actual career in Bollywood. It is Anurag Kashyap who found his talent and gave him roles that shot him to fame.
