Hot Aiswarya Rai News - 'Rang De Basanti' wins best film award at Bollywood Oscars

"Rang De Basanti" won the award for best film early Sunday at Bollywood's answer to the Oscars, an annual highlight for the Hindi film industry staged this year in northern England.

Rakeysh Mehra's blockbuster snapped up the key prize at The International Indian Film Academy Awards (IIFAs), designed both to honour Indian movie talent as well as promote Indian cinema worldwide.

Bollywood's golden couple Abhishek Bachchan and his wife Hot Aiswarya Rai presented the award for the film that had secured nominations for best film and 14 other categories.

The movie, which also features Alice Patten, daughter of Chris Patten, Britain's last governor in Hong Kong, is about a filmmaker who wants to make a movie about Indian nationalists who rose up against British colonial rule.

A London-based filmmaker played by Patten tries to cast five friends, but they resist at first because they are products of a modern consumer society who have little in common with a past about sacrifice and patriotism.

Its release last year was delayed because producers did not obtain official clearance before shooting a horse-racing sequence, while the military had to approve a computer-generated scene showing the crash of a MiG-21 fighter jet.

"Rang De Basanti" was India's submission for best foreign language film at this year's Oscars but failed to secure a nomination.

It beat other films nominated for the best film category such as "Lage Raho Munnabhai," "Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna," "Vivah," "Krrish" and "Dhoom 2."

Winning best actor in a leading role was Hrithik Roshan for Krrish. Awarded best actress in a leading role was Rani Mukherjee for "Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna."

The award for best director went to Rajkumar Hirani for "Lage Raho Munnabhai," a comedy about the enduring influence of Mahatma Gandhi and his philosophy of non-violence.

The glitzy award ceremony is the culmination of a four-day event that celebrates the world's second largest cinema industry and was likely to have been watched on television by some 500 million people around the world.

An estimated 30,000 overseas visitors poured into Sheffield, Leeds, Bradford, York and Hull for the events that are bringing a touch of glamour to gritty northern England.

But a serious twist was thrown in as the stars walked the green carpet that replaced the traditional red carpet to raise awareness of environmental issues and climate change.

The industrial heartland of Yorkshire, built on industries like mining and steel, may seem like an unlikely setting for such a flamboyant event, but the area has the third-largest population of British Asians in the UK.

The IIFAs, first held in 2000 in London, are always held in different locations around the world, such as Johannesburg, South Africa, and Amsterdam, to increase the international profile of Bollywood film.
