Bachchan wins best actor in social role award

Megastar Amitabh Bachchan is elated to have won two awards - best actor in social role and entertainer of the year - at Big Star Entertainment Awards last night.

"2 awards... I am blessed...!!," Bachchan tweeted today.

The awards saw the introduction of a new sub-category - 'social' - for actors and films.

Contending for best actor in social role were Bachchan for 'Aarakshan' which dealt with the issue of caste-based reservations in educational institutions, Manoj Bajpayee for the same film, Rahul Bose for 'I am', and Atif Aslam for 'Bol'.

Big B was all praise for south actor-singer Dhanush, who was in Mumbai for his first-ever live performance at the award ceremony.

"And... when complete Entertainer announced, Dhanush sings live from audience, a Kolaveri Di number but words to suit the occasion. Dhanush words were 'Why this Kolaveri, Kolaveri, Kolaveri B, .. big B ... TRP .. brilliant absolutely ..!! So lovable and so good!," Bachchan added.
