It was as close as it gets, a photo-finish, but ultimately Rizvan Khan battled Asperger’s syndrome and beat the odds to edge past progeria patient Auro. Shah Rukh Khan claims the Best Actor crown for My Name Is Khan with 32% of votes.

Walking the line between laughter and tears, SRK was able to make Rizvan endearing and entertaining. And his chemistry with Kajol was as good as ever.

The votes in this category threw up some interesting trends, too. You the reader/voter must have really hated Kites with Hrithik Roshan not getting a single vote! Also, for all his muscle at the box office, Rajinikanth managed all of two votes.


Layers and layers of make-up couldn’t mask a towering performance from the baap of them all, Amitabh Bachchan. As the 13-year-old who looks like an 80-year-old in Paa, AB made Auro a whole lot of fun and won admiration rather than sympathy votes. With just a few votes less than SRK, AB wins silver here.


Rancho helped 3 Idiots become the biggest hit in Bollywood history and even win the Best Film at the t2 screen awards but in the Best Actor category Aamir Khan has to be happy with the third spot behind Badshah and Shahenshah. Still for a film about three friends, Aamir managed to leave an impression strong enough to win 20% of the votes.


Salman Khan should be mighty happy with this. The first one to admit that he is a star and not an actor, Sallu miyan has proved himself wrong by getting more Best Actor votes than Ranbir. Chulbul Pandey is the fantasy, Dabangg the film.


He had two nominations, one for Raajneeti and one for Wake Up Sid. And it was his turn as the cold yet compassionate political scion Samar Pratap Singh in Prakash Jha’s political epic that won Ranbir Kapoor the fifth spot in this list of toppers.

With two nominations, Vidya Balan won a whopping 55% of your votes. The two nods also meant that her votes got divided, but that couldn’t stop Vidya from winning the crown with 32% of the total votes. For? Her terrific turn as the unwed Ma in Paa.


Driving a wedge between the two Vidyas, Kajol wins silver. Returning with her fave partners-on-camera, Karan Johar and Shah Rukh Khan, Kajol wowed again as Mandira in My Name is Khan.


That Ishqiya didn’t win a single vote in the Best Film category only goes to show what an impact Vidya’s power-packed performance as Krishnaji had on you despite the film. She got 23% of the votes.
