Offbeat cinema turned out to be the toast of the season with Paan Singh Tomar and Barfi! sharing the best film title, and its lead actors -- Irrfan Khan and Ranbir Kapoor respectively, lifting the best actor’s trophy at the 19th Annual Colors Screen Awards Saturday night.
Irrfan Khan essayed the role of former national steeplechase champion-turned-bandit Paan Singh Tomar in the biopic "Paan Singh Tomar", while Ranbir Kapoor wowed everyone with his heart-warming performance as deaf and mute Murphy in "Barfi!".
In terms of direction too, commercial entertainers took a backseat with Anurag Basu winning the best director award for "Barfi!".
Megastar Amitabh Bachchan received a special award at the event, while late filmmaker Yash Chopra, who died in October 2012, was conferred the lifetime achievement award.
