Amitabh Bachchan will receive the Best Actor prize for his role in Shoojit Sircar's Piku, while Kangana Ranaut will take home the Best Actress trophy for her double role in Aanand L Rai's Tanu Weds Manu Returns. This is Mr Bachchan's fourth win and third for Kangana.
"I am really happy because I genuinely believe that filmmaking is a collaborative effort. It is not the work of one person. It is the team that has worked together. So, if I won an award, it's equal to them winning an award and if they won, it's as good as me winning it," said Ranveer Singh
"We were expecting Mr Bachchan to win. I was quite sure that he had great chances of winning the best actor award as he was incredible as Bhashkor Banerjee. I was really hoping for Deepika to win the Best Actress award as I feel she gave a beautiful performance," said the film's director Shoojit Sircar
"It's not the first time and we are very proud of Paa. He has won his award yet again. His every performance deserves to be celebrated. Thank you on behalf of paa and we love him and God bless him," said Aishwarya Rai Bachchan. Aishwarya, who was last seen in 2015's Jazbaa, will soon be seen in Omung Kumar's Sarbjit
In Ki And Ka, Mr Bachchan makes a special appearance with his wife Jaya and according to the filmmaker, it is the best role which he has written for his favourite star. "The role I have written for Amitji in Ki And Ka is the best for him so far. I have a great working relationship with him," said Balki

It's been a busy few days for Amitabh Bachchan lately but not so busy that he hasn't been able to update his Twitter. In separate tweets, Big B revealed that Anil Kapoor put him in an 'embarrassing spot' and that he had had a conversation with Shah Rukh Khan, which started in Dubai and was carried to Mumbai
"Ranveer is an actor, so these songs do not require too much of dance. They require elements of 'how Amitabh Bachchan would react to these songs', because he is a great actor. The songs will not only be just a dance, but have a lot of acting as well," Shiamak Davar said.
Kalki has been nominated for her role in 2015's Margarita, With a Straw, which was directed by director duo Shonali Bose and Nilesh Maniyar. The TOIFA 2016 awards ceremony will be held in Dubai on March 18, where actors like Ranveer Singh, Amitabh Bachchan and Anushka Sharma will be awarded
