Non-commercial films such as Masaan and Talvar also won accolades. Richa Chadha won the Editor's Choice Performer of the Year award for Masaan while Irrfan Khan received the same award for Piku. Meghna Gulzar, who made Talvar, received the Filmmaker of the Year award
Happy New Year, Queen, Highway and Haider were the major winners at the awards
The first awards for the season were the Stardust Awards and we were as excited to know who the winners would be as anyone else who enjoys movies. The result, however, wasn't very satisfying because it all turned out be rather confusing with most actors receiving an award in one category or the other.
