The Bollywood comedy Queen grabbed six gongs at the 60th Filmfare Awards on Saturday, including Best Director for Vikas Bahl and Best Actress for Kangana Ranaut.

Vishal Bhardwaj’s Shakespearean drama Haider won awards in five categories – including Best Actor for Shahid Kapoor, Best Actress in a Supporting Role for Tabu and Best Actor in a Supporting Role for Kay Kay Menon.

Abhishek Varman won Best Debut Director for the romantic comedy 2 States, starring Alia Bhatt and Arjun Kapoor. Best Dialogue and Best Screenplay went to Aamir Khan’s PK. But other big films tipped to win major gongs, including Shah Rukh Khan’s Happy New Year and Priyanka Chopra’s Mary Kom, were left out. The popular singer Arijit Singh went home empty-handed, too – Ankit Tiwari was named Best Playback Singer for the track Galliyan from Ek Villain.
