Filmfare Award for Best Villain

Filmfare Award for Best Villian

Any guesss why didn’t Amjad Khan (Gabbar Singh), Amrish Puri (Mogambo), Anupam Kher (Dr. Dang), Gulshan Grover (Kesariya Vilayti) and many more actors like Pran, Prem Chopra, Ajit and Jeevan never won any Filmfare Award for Best Villain?

The reason is that although the Filmfare Awards were started way back in 1953, the awards for the best villain category was started only in 1991 and hence some of the meanest characters ever potrayed in Hindi films, have never won this award. However, this category has seen some very interesting winners over the past years since 1991. Some of them are:

1. Sadashiv Amrapurkar was the first receipient of this award in the year 1991 for his potrayal as “Maharani” in Sadak.

Sadak was inspired by Martin Scorsese's Taxi Driver (starring Robert De Niro and Jodie Foster)

2. Kajol was the first woman to win an award under this category for Gupt (1997).

3. Priyanka Chopra has won this award for Aitraaz (2004)

4. Ashutosh Rana has won two back to back awards for Sangharsh (1999) and Dushman (1998).

5. Nana Patekar has won this award twice for Apaharan (2005) and Angaar (1992).

6. Some of film industry’s leading actors have won awards in this category such as:

Shahrukh Khan for Anjaam (1994)
Sunil Shetty for Dhadkan (2000)
Akshay Kumar for Ajnabee (2001)
Ajay Devgan for Deewangee (2002)
