Prithviraj and Rima Kallingal bagged the best actor and actress awards, respectively, at the Kerala State Film Awards 2012 announced here Friday.

While Prithviraj won the award for his performances in "Celluloid" and "Ayalum Njanum Thammil", Rima got the best actress award for her performance in the film "22 Female Kottayam" and "Nidra".

Directed by Kamal, "Celluloid", based on the life of J.C. Daniel, the pioneer of Malayalam cinema, was also adjudged the best film.

The awards were announced by state Cinema Minister K.B. Ganesh Kumar.

"This year the jury had a tough job to perform with 84 films to be seen, the highest ever entry for awards. They finished their job only today early morning at 5 a.m.," said Kumar.

Expressing his happiness, Prithviraj dedicated the award to the teams of both the films.

"I dedicate this award to all who worked with me in the films. I could do well because of the director, the scriptwriter and all others who worked behind the scenes. It is certainly a good feeling and I am delighted," said Prithviraj.

Incidentally, this is the second time that Prithviraj has won the best actor award, with the first one in 2006 for "Vaasthavam".
