New Delhi [India], Jan. 15 (ANI): Hard work and a perfect company do pay off well. At least for Shahid Kapoor, yes! The 36-year-old bagged the 'Critics' Award For Best Actor (Male)' at the Filmfare Awards last night, for his much-controversial film 'Udta Punjab' and the win turned yet more special as he had his 'best' half Mira by his side. It was Mira's first award event and while speaking to Filmfare, she said, "I am absolutely excited to be a part of something that is honouring the best performances of the last year. I just hope he wins," and look, he won! Shahid on the same note said, "I am the happiest man. I am so happy to be here with Mira and it's a very special Filmfare." Other than this, Sasha's win was also special because of the much-controversy and hurdles the movie faced prior release. Story does not end here! When Shahid gets the black lady, how can Alia be far behind? The supremely talented Alia Bhatt took home the 'Best Actor (Female)' award for, again, 'Udta Punjab.' Diljit Dosanjh too won the 'Best Debut Male' for the same. Looks like, its time for the 'Udta Punjab' team to say, 'On your face haters!' (ANI)
