With the year coming to an end, also brings time to the beginning of the awards season. And after having delivered two hit films this year, Irrfan has truly had a home run by kickstarting the season with his win as the most Popular Actor.
Check out the complete list of winners & the red carpet looks of stars here:
Irrfan won the award for his acting in Hindi Medium. The actor was nominated alongside the likes of Shahrukh Khan for Raees, Varun Dhawan for Badrinath Ki Dulhaniya, Aamir Khan for Dangal. He went home with his award in hand which was held at an event in Mumbai last night.
Speaking about his win, Irrfan said:
“It’s amazing that I won this very same award as the Best Villian for Hassil and now it’s the Best Actor. It’s humbling and I’m really glad to know how successful Hindi Medium has been as a film. I have always strongly believed that the economics of film success can be achieved with films that run high on content. Hindi Medium I do truly believe was a complete entertainer with a great message and subject backing it and that’s what makes this win even more special. The year has ended on a great note first with my last film being appreciated by all and now this”.
