53rd Fair One Filmfare Awards

20 March 2008 FilmFare Magazine

The Filmfare Awards are one of the most prominent film awards in the country. They are often referred to as 'Indian Oscars' as they showcase the best talent of the Indian film industry. Here is the list of winners.

Best Actor

Shahrukh Khan (Chak De India)

Best Actress

Kareena Kapoor (Jab We Met)

Best Film

Taare Zameen Par

Best Director

Aamir Khan (Taare Zameen Par)

Best Action

Rob Miller (Chak De India)

Action is no longer confined to the realm of dishum dishum but has become an art form itself.  Rob Miller of ReelSports choreographed the on-field antics of the hockey players with the precision of a ballet master.  We felt like we were watching Swan Lake instead of a sports film.
