Bollywood stars Ranbir Kapoor and Vidya Balan picked the best actors' trophies at the star-studded seventh edition of Chevrolet Apsara Awards here Wednesday night for their performance in "Rockstar" and "The Dirty Picture" respectively.

The best film award went to "Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara", and Zoya Akhtar won the best director for the movie. Her actor-filmmaker brother Farhan took home the best supporting actor award for the movie too.

The best supporting actress award went to Priyanka Chopra's cousin Parineeti, for her portrayal of a bubbly, rich, spoilt Delhi girl in "Ladies Vs Ricky Bahl". The act also bagged the best debutant (female) award for her.

The best debutant (male) honour went to southern actor Rana Daggubati for his first Bollywood project "Dum Maro Dum".

The best choreography trophy was picked by Bosco-Caesar for the peppy title track of "Desi Boyz".

Irshad Kamil picked the best lyrics award for "Naadaan parindey" from the film "Rockstar", while the best music award went to Oscar winning composer A.R.Rahman for the same film.

Mohit Chauhan, who became the voice of Ranbir's character in "Rockstar" walked away with the best singer (male) award for the cult song "Sadda haq". Among the females, Shreya Ghoshal took the honour for her rendition of romantic number "Teri meri" from the movie "Bodyguard".

A special award was bestowed upon megastar Amitabh Bachchan for the last season of "Kaun Banega Crorepati", which proved to be a worthy platform for the common man.

The Apsara Awards, organised by the Film and Television Producers Guild of India in association with Wizcraft International Entertainment and channel Colors, was hosted by witty filmmakers Farah Khan and Karan Johar. It had a line-up of entertaining acts.

A highlight was the kickstarting of the celebrations of 100 years of Indian cinema . As a special segment of the celebrations, the awards night hosted a special tribute dedicated to the cinema legends and their glorious years in Bollywood. Veteran stars like Rajesh Khanna, Zeenat Aman and Jaya Bachchan came upon the stage for it.

Other performances were a hit too.

"Band Baaja Baaraat" actress Anushka Sharma took to the stage to groove with popular telly actors Nandish Sandhu, Sushant Singh Rajput and Shabbir Ahluwalia on songs like "Dum dum", "Thag le" and "Jazba" respectively.

Soon-to-be married couple Riteish Deshmukh and Genelia D'Souza also set the stage on fire with their crackling chemistry as they brought their real-life love story alive on stage while performing at the award function at the Yash Raj Studios. They emulated the story of their eight-year-old romantic journey.

Kareena Kapoor staged a sizzling performance, wherein she took a cue from sirens of the southern film industry and performed on a medley of south Indian hits such as "Nakka mukka", recently heard in the Hindi film "The Dirty Picture". She also grooved to "Ringa ringa" from the film "Arya 2", as well as the chartbuster "Kolaveri di".

Actress Ameesha Patel also entertained the audience by dancing to recent hit item numbers like "Chikni chameli", "Ooh la la" and "Madhubala" from Mere Brother Ki Dulhan.

Bollywood badshah Shah Rukh Khan gave the show a befitting grand finale act. Styled around recent hit "Don 2: The King Is Back", the performance saw the superstar in the avatar of a gangster.
