Anurag Basu's "Barfi!" has won maximum nominations, including for best film, best actor, best actress and best director, for the 58th Idea Filmfare Awards 2012. Yash Chopra's last directorial "Jab Tak Hai Jaan" follows close behind.
"Barfi!", a heart-warming love story of a deaf-and-mute man, essayed by Ranbir Kapoor, with an autistic girl (Priyanka Chopra) has received nine nods. Shah Rukh Khan-starrer "Jab Tak Hai Jaan" stands a chance to win across seven categories.
Apart from Ranbir and Shah Rukh, those vying in the "best actor in a leading role" (male) are Hrithik Roshan ("Agneepath(2012)"), Irrfan ("Paan Singh Tomar"), Manoj Bajpayee ("Gangs Of Wasseypur") and Salman Khan ("Dabangg 2").
Priyanka apart, those nominated in the "best actor in a leading role" (female) category are Deepika Padukone ("Cocktail"), Kareena Kapoor ("Heroine"), Parineeti Chopra ("Ishqazaade"), Sridevi ("English Vinglish") and Vidya Balan ("Kahaani").
Crime thriller "Gangs of Wasseypur" has clinched a total of six nominations, Karan Johar's action-packed "Agneepath" remake has five nods, and "Vicky Donor", about sperm donation, has secured four.
"English Vinglish", "Kahaani" and "Talaash" have been nominated across three categories each.
A Monday night party here to announce the nominations was attended by Priyanka, Deepika, Anushka Sharma, Imran Khan, Sridevi, Ranveer Singh, Alia Bhatt and Huma Qureshi.
This year Filmfare has created a special trophy with a gold base to commemorate 100 years of Indian cinema. These will be given out to winners Jan 20 at the YRF Studios here.

Why Amir is not nominated for Talaash ? Why Salman is nominated for Dabang 2 ? How come Salman over Amir ? Blind idiots jury members !
Barfi was a nice movie but i dont think Ranbir should win best actor award for that. He was good but not better than Hritik of Agneepath, SRK of JTHJ, Amir of Talaash or Irfan of Pan Singh Tomar. These actors are masters in acting.
As far as best actress is concerned again not Priyanka. I like her but its obvious that Vidya Balan is way better actress than her and she was fab in Kahaani.
Apart from nominations, I hope we gotta see SRK hosting awards with Saif. They rock together.
Love you SRK
Amir is a great actor. I can't believe they didn't even nominate. Actually nvm if didn't nominate him for gajni den how r they going to give him award for n other movie? Amir deserved the award for gajni n 3idiots bt i think the jury is blind.
Even though Barfi was a great film, I feel disabled characters on screen have crutches, which is why all the films whether its Amitabh in Paa, SRK in MNIK, Hrithik in Guzaarish, or that little kid from TZP all get awards. Ranbir is great, but this time it should be Hrithik for Agneepath.

I'm surprised Salman has been nominated for Dabangg 2 but not for Ek Tha Tiger, shouldn't it be the other way round? n how come Aamir hasn't been nominated for Talaash?? Honestly speaking these awards are rather silly
Sridevi for English Vinglish OR Vidya forKahani and
Irfan khan for Pan singh Tomar
