Barfi! wins big at inaugural TOIFA awards in Vancouver

Anurag Basu's bewitching tale of a deaf and mute boy in 70's Darjeeling was the big winner at the inaugural Times of India Film Awards in picturesque Vancouver, British Columbia overnight.

'Barfi!', starring Ranbir Kapoor and Priyanka Chopra, won Best Picture as well as the major individual awards on the night, including Best Director for Basu, Best Actor for Kapoor - who co-hosted the event alongside Anushka Sharma - Best Actress for Priyanka Chopra and Best Debut Female for Ileana D'Cruzz.

The other big winners on the night were Hrithik Roshan starrer 'Agneepath' and wild oats romp 'Vicky Donor', whose much-loved male lead Ayushmann Khurrana won the award for Best Debut - Male, for his unforgettable turn as a reluctant sperm donor whilst his on-screen mother - played by Dolly Ahluwalia - won Best Supporting Actress.

Vicky Donor's Annu Kapoor won the Best Supporting Actor award.

Another veteran actor, Rishi Kapoor, won the award for Best Supporting Actor - Negative Role, for his role as the fearsome Rauf Lala in Agneepath, which also collected awards for Best Music and Best Male Playback Singer for Sonu Nigam.

The glittering awards ceremony, held at Vancouver's historic Pacific Coliseum, was a sell out and was attended by a glittering array of Bollywood celebs including Shah Rukh Khan, Nargis Fakri, Karan Johar, Priyanka Chopra, Abhishek Bachchan and wife Aishwarya Bachchan, Manoj Baypayee and Boman Irani.

The government of British Columbia reportedly paid more than £7.5 million to host the event, which was watched by an estimated 400 million viewers around the world.
