Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan won the favourite hero title over Salman Khan by a narrow margin at the Star Gold's 'Sabsey Favourite Kaun 2006' awards in Mumbai on Sunday.

Rani Mukherjee won the favourite heroine title, defeating the strong competition from the likes of Aishwarya Rai and Kajol .




The winners were chosen for their popularity among fans and not for their acting performances in films.

The close battle between SRK and Salman proves again Shahrukh's dominance as the true superstar of Bollywood and Salman's un-dented popularity with the masses despite the controversies and the recent court sentences.

What was more surprising was that Ash could not emerge as the most favourite heroine over Rani despite the fact that Rani has not had any big release for many months now.

The host and hostess of the 'Sabsey Favourite Kaun 2006' awards were Arshad Warsi and wife Maria Goretti who kept the audience in splits with their one-liners.

As expected, Sanjay Leela Bhansali-directed Black was adjudged the 'Sabsey favourite film' not only by the classes, but the masses as well.

In the 'Sabsey favourite Naya Hero' (newcomer) the contest was close between Kunal Kapoor and Kunal Khemu . Kunal Kapoor from Rang De Basanti won in the end.

In the new actress category, Vidya Balan of Parineeta won the 'Sabsey favourite Nayi heroine'. Katrina Kaif was a close second.

Paresh Rawal won the 'Sabsey favourite Comic hero' award for the third year in a row.

The 'Sabsey Tez Sitara' award, given to a hero who has taken most strides in the past one year, went to John Abraham . He followed in the footsteps of Abhishek Bachchan , the last year's winner.

The event saw some stunning performances by Udita Goswami and Kunal Khemu, who performed on a medley of songs by Himesh Reshammiya.

Tanushree Dutta , Vinay Pathak and Suresh Menon of the 'Great Indian Comedy' show recreated the magic of all-time classic Hindi films such as 'Sholay', 'Amar, Akbar and Anthony' and 'Don'.

Fardeen Khan performed on the theme 'The many moods of Fardeen'. But the show-stopper was Hrithik Roshan , whose thrilling performance tracked his journey from Koi Mil Gaya to Krrish . This was also his first-ever stage performance based on 'Krrish'.

The awards ceremony will be telecast on Star Gold on May 14 at 20:00 hrs.
