Ankoosh Bhatt, director of “3 Dev”, says that his forthcoming film is different from “PK” and “OMG – Oh My God!” which had similar story lines based on god and religion.

Ankoosh was interacting with media to promote “3 Dev” on Friday in Mumbai.

When asked Ankoosh whether he is ready for his film being compared with “PK” and “OMG – Oh My God!”, he said, ” ‘3 Dev’ is slightly different. If you take example of ‘PK’ or “OMG – Oh My God!” , that film talked about religious views of people. In this film, we are not talking about religion, we are talking about god in totality.

“God is very different phenomenon than religion. When we divide our self into different religion then every religion has its own god like Allah, Jesus Christ or Brahma, Vishnu and Mahesh but ultimately god is the one who has super powers…”

Ankoosh who has given films like “Bhindi Baazaar Inc.” and “Mumbai Mirror” says that “3 Dev” delivers a strong message about God and faith”.

“Other films have tried to give message about humanity and other stuff which is right but here, we are trying showcase that how god is important in our life and why we need to have faith on god in today’s time,” he said.

IIFA Awards: ‘Queen’ wins top honors, Shahid bags Best Actor award for ‘Haider’

Kuala Lumpur: Vikas Bahl’s directorial “Queen”, a coming-of-age story of a woman’s self-discovery, bagged awards in the Best Picture, Best Story and Best Performance in a Leading Role – Female categories at the three-day long 16th edition of the International Indian Film Academy (IIFA) Weekend and Awards here.

The Kangana Ranaut-starrer was up against “2 States”, “PK”, “Haider”, “Highway” and “Mary Kom” for the Best Picture trophy.

The actress didn’t turn up to collect her trophy for Best Performance in a Leading Role – Female, so the film’s director received the award on her behalf.

Bahl, however, lost the award in the Direction category to Rajkumar Hirani, who took home the trophy for “PK”.

In the Leading Role – Male category, Shahid Kapoor, who also performed at the award ceremony, hosted by Ranveer Singh and Arjun Kapoor, walked home with the award for his performance in “Haider”.

He had strong contenders in Aamir Khan (“PK”), Hrithik Roshan (“Bang Bang!”), and Shah Rukh Khan (“Happy New Year”).

Hrithik might have lost the award to Shahid, but his “Bang Bang!” act with a bhangra twist won hearts of many, including Deepika Padukone, who was felicitated with Woman of the Year award.

She was also nominated in the Best Performance in a Leading Role – Female.

Riteish Deshmukh grabbed the award for Best Performance in a Supporting Role – Male for his villainous act in “Ek Villain” against competition from Ronit Roy (“2 States”), Randeep Hooda (“Kick”), Inaamulhaq (“Filmistaan”), Naseeruddin Shah (“Finding Fanny”) and Kay Kay Menon (“Haider”).

But Kay Kay wasn’t left disappointed as he received the award for Best Performance in a Negative Role for “Haider”, while his co-star Tabu won Best Performance in a Supporting Role – Female.

There was also an award for Best Regional Film, which went to Riteish-starrer Marathi film “Lai Bhaari”, co-produced by his star wife Genelia Deshmukh.

“Main Tera Hero” star Varun Dhawan won an award for the Best Performance in a Comic Role. The film’s director and his father David Dhawan received the sun-inspired trophy on his behalf.

The Best Music Direction trophy went to the popular trio Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy for “2 States”. Other contenders included Mithoon (“Banjara”, “Zaroorat” and “Hamdard”) and Ankit Tiwari (“Galliyan”), for which he won Best Playback Singer – Male.

In the female category of the award, the “Baby doll” singer Kanika Kapoor (for the film “Ragini MMS 2”) got over competition from Sultana and Jyoti Nooran for “Patakha guddi (“Highway”) and Shreya Ghoshal for “Samjhawan” (“Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania”).

It was a big night for “Heropanti” actors Tiger Shroff and Kriti Sanon, who both won trophies for Best Debut. They were both handed over the trophies by their idols. While Tiger was given the award by Hrithik, Kriti looked thrilled to get the trophy from Anushka Sharma, whom she looks up to.

Tiger and Hrithik also did a few moves together on the stage, while Ranveer and Arjun tried to follow them.

National Award-winning director Omung Kumar got the Best Debut Direction award for “Mary Kom”. He shared it with popular producer Sajid Nadiadwala, who made his directorial debut with “Kick”.

It was an emotional moment when the award for Outstanding Contribution to Indian Cinema was announced. The showman, Subhash Ghai, got on stage to receive it from Anil Kapoor and Jackie Shroff, whom he worked with in the 1989 movie “Ram Lakhan” and more. Shraddha Kapoor also paid tribute to Ghai by performing to songs from his films like “Taal” and “Kisna”.

“I grew up dancing on ‘Taal se taal mila’ in front of the mirror and today I got the opportunity to perform on the song on this platform,” said the 26-year-old actress.

Other performers of the night included Parineeti Chopra and Anushka, who made everyone swing to her performance as she mostly danced to songs from her latest film “Dil Dhadakne Do”. Sonakshi Sinha did a medley of Amitabh Bachchan and other superstars’ songs.

A special tribute to Shah Rukh and Kajol-starrer “Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge”, which completed 1,000 weeks of screening last year, was paid by the show’s hosts, who also cracked jokes on their controversial AIB Roast video for which they got into trouble earlier this year.

Held at Putra Indoor Stadium, the award ceremony was attended by thousands of screaming fans, some of whom had flown from different countries just to see their favorite stars at the gala, which celebrates Indian cinema in various foreign nations every year.

It was a perfect evening to bring the curtains down on the grand three-day celebration of Bollywood in the Malaysian capital, where fans gathered to be part of the glitz and glamour.
