Filmfare Best Actor Awards 1954 to 2014

Filmfare Awards is the second most prestigious award in the industry after the Indian National Awards. Part of the reason is history, Filmfare is the oldest awards in the Hindi film industry. Out of more than 20 categories and trophies presented each year, the Filmfare Best Actor Award is something that the entire industry and fans look forward to. It’s also the most fiercely competed and discussed category, as those nominated for the Best Actor award are usually a combination of immense popularity and talent. Filmfare Popular awards, in itself, is 50% audience voting and 50% jury.

Some facts:

  • Dilip Kumar has been nominated 19 times and won 8 awards. The legend is also the only actor to win 3 back to back awards. His conversions of receiving a nomination to winning an actor, is by far the best.
  • Shahrukh Khan has been nominated 34 times (all categories) and has won the Best Actor award 8 times, a record which he shares with Dilip Kumar.
  • Amitabh Bachchan has been nominated for a record 29 times but has won just 5 awards.
  • Hrithik Roshan has been nominated 12 times and has won 4 trophies. Hrithik is the first and only actor to win both the Best Actor and Best Debut awards in the same year (for Kaho Na Pyaar Hai). And the first actor to win both the Best Actor critics and popular award (for Koi Mil Gaya).
  • Rajesh Khanna has received 14 nominations and has won just 3.
  • One of the biggest superstars in the industry, Salman Khan has received the ‘highest number of nominations without winning’. Some of his notable losses are to Jackie Shroff in 1989 (Maine Pyaar Kiya), Shahrukh in 1995 (Karan Arjun) and Hrithik in 2003 (Tere Naam).
  • Aamir Khan has won the Filmfare Best Actor award twice, but he refused to accept the award for Lagaan in 2001 and doesn’t attend any Indian award ceremony.
  • Among stars who are currently popular, Ajay is the only actor to win both National Awards and Filmfare Awards. The other name is Amitabh Bachchan. The Khans, Hrithik and Ranbir have never won a National award. Akshay Kumar is probably the most popular actor, who even has quite a few critically acclaimed performance, but has never won a National or Filmfare Best Actor award.

  • All deserved awards except Amir- raja Hindustani , srk- DTPH, hritik- dhoom2
    @indicine rishi kapoor was first actor to win ff on debut for bobby not hritk

    Amitabh and Rajesh khanna were just unlucky because their great performance came in same year like mukaddar ka Sikander, don and trishul released same year and he just won for don. Same for Rajesh khanaa

    Between superb article after long time.

  • Ajay Devgn deserved for Zakhm. But sadly, he didn’t get.

    Salman’s career best performance was Tere Naam which was remake of a Tamil film. He was beaten by Hrithik’s Koi Mil Gaya performance which was one of the best performances of Hrithik.

    Akki never deserved an award. He didn’t win though.

  • Well out of the current lot, Hrithik seems the one who can make it the highest awards and beat Dilip Kumar and SRK.
    However till 2009 only he had 4 Best actor trophies, after that its been a dry spell for him. But Mohenjo-Daro should end this wait.
    He deserved 2 more trophies but he didn’t got them as those movies were not commercially successful- Lakshya and Guzaarish. Had these movies been a hit Hrithik would had 6 trophies till now. But still considering his age, currently he is the best we have got. He should rule box-office both in terms of collections and awards in upcoming years.
