Shah Rukh Khan won the Best Villain award for his controversial performance in the remake of classic Bollywood film DON.  His performance in DON received as many criticisms as it did applaud. Shah Rukh was asked if he now felt vindicated in light of the public votes that he received.
Shah Rukh said, “No, you feel vindicated if you believe in the people who give the negative reactions and I never believe in that because it was very clearly a modern day combined with the old DON version and it was targeted at an audience, which may not have seen the old DON. We can just assume that the older audience did not like the film but the younger audiences, who we aimed the film at really enjoyed it. I feel I did a good job and I liked what I did in DON.

Shah Rukh was even more defiant towards his critics when he spoke to Film Café about his role in KHABHI ALVIDA NAA KHENA, where he plays an adulterous husband.

Aamir Khan, voted Best Actor in the awards, spoke exclusively to Film Café to explain why these awards mean more to him than industry awards.

“I'm overwhelmed by the response of the audience.  It was a difficult film to do as an actor.  I am really moved by the response.  Film and award ceremonies are so subjective and I don't take award nights serious - the film has been made for the audience and they have loved it and that is of prime importance to me.”

RANG DE BASANTI has done particularly well, winning the overall vote in four of the eight categories.
