There was something for everyone at the Stardust Awards 2013 on Saturday evening. Bollywood actors Shahrukh Khan and Priyanka Chopra bagged two awards each.

While Priyanka won Best Actress (Drama) for her fabulous performance as an autistic young girl in film Barfi! and Star of the Year award (female), Shahrukh won Star of the Year (male) and Best Actor (Editor’s choice) trophies for his role in the Yash Raj Films romantic flick Jab Tak Hai Jaan.


Anurag Basu’s Barfi! was awarded the Best Film award.

On award night, megastar Amitabh Bachchan performed his widely popular song Jumma Chumma and was overwhelmed when some of the leading ladies of Bollywood, including Vidya Balan and Priyanka, joined him on stage for the gig.

The 70-year-old received the Star of the Century Award at the gala night and also picked up the award on behalf of his son Abhishek for his role in Bol Bachchan.

“So seems like everyone is keen on Stardust awards... here it comes, Abhishek for Bol Bachchan best actor comedy/romance. And one slightly tall gentleman who has been around for 44 years got Star of the Century Award,” he tweeted.

“Abhishek in New York for shoot, so I went up for his too...double trouble tonight (Saturday)! They asked me to dance to Jumma Chumma [from the film Hum]. I asked during Jumma...who do I have to kiss? And all the lovely ladies in the front row ran up the stage — guess who?”

“Vidya, Priyanka, Parineeti (Chopra), Anushka(Sharma), Bipasha (Basu)...and I gave them all a peck. It’s been a generous day,” he further tweeted.
