Star-struck night on stage and floor

the awards

Catcalls and more catcalls. What else can happen when Ishaa Koppikar moves to Company and Kaante. The Khallas girl kicked up the oomph factor with a string of raunchy item numbers and all that razzle-dazzle
Rising star Koel Mullick took the stage for the first song-and-dance number of the evening with co-star Jeet
Ranjit Mullick, who received a special award for his contribution to Bengali cinema, gave away the Best Actor award to Sabyasachi Chakraborty. The deafening applause showed just what Feluda means to the masses
Miss Mallika may have stolen the thunder in Murder, but screen-hubby Ashmit Patel didn't go wholly unnoticed. Little wonder then that the Best Debutant had one of the best seats in the house, beside Moon Moon Sen
Congrats! Said Saif Ali Khan to producer Vidhu Vinod Chopra, after he bagged the Best Bollywood Film award for Munnabhai MBBS, as Vidya Balan smiled on. Soon, it was the Hum Tum lad's turn to pick his Best Actor's prize. 'I never knew I was so sentimental until a man in Siliguri called me Didi ka ladka. If it were not for my mother, I would have never been in this industry. So, I dedicate this to her,' said the son of Sharmila Tagore
His witty asides often had the crowds in splits, while she perked up the glam quotient. MCs Derek O'Brien and June kept the show going smooth
 

The aftermath

The prizes won and lost, the party crowd headed straight for ITC Sonar Bangla where a lavish spread of food and cocktails awaited all. Sreela Majumdar, June and Sudipa (from left to right) seemed more footloose and fancy-free than famished
The dance floor is too cramped, the sip-and-bite table is more cosy. Chaiti Ghoshal, Deboleena Dutta and Arunima Ghosh settled down for a chat and to catch others in action
He was one of the first to hit the floor and the last to leave. Parambrata Chatterjee, in red, was a great hit among the girls
It was Babul Supriyo who coaxed Jeet into an impromptu jig on stage to a Kishore Kumar track, but the macho man stumped the Bollywood singer by snatching the mike and rounding off the song. The two got into the groove yet again, this time at the Pala party
Arjun Chakraborty and wife Nilanjana didn't need much coaxing either to join the fun club.
