Zee Astitva Awards 2008

Priyanka Chopra with the award


Priyanka Chopra attended the Zee Astitva Awards 2008 function where she received an award for her contribution to Indian Cinema. Priyanka looked extremely chic and sexy in a classy black fitting dress with green straps. We must say the actress is looking extremely fit and stylish these days, now with two films soon to be released, it's only natural that Piggy Chops is making an extra effort with her appearances, but we're still trying to figure out which of her performances deserve an award?


Rani Mukherjee performing at 2008 Zee Astitva Awards


Rani Mukherjee gave a spectacular performance at the Zee Astitva Awards 2008. Rani has not been seen at many functions recently, so it was quite a pleasant surprise to see her perform. She performed an Indian dance with a bollywood feel. Rani has not had a hit film recently, despite working with one of the top banners, Yash Raj films. So perhaps it's about time Rani work with other banners, but beau Aditya Chopra may not be too happy about the idea. Rani could also do with a stylish makeover, since she has to now compete with chic actresses like Priyanka, Kareena, Bipasha.


Farah Khan at Zee Astitva Awards


Director Farah Khan may have only directed two films yet, but both were super hits and she is also one of the few female bollywood directors to achieve success so quickly and hence she received the Zee Astitva Award. Farah's lucky mascot SRK played the lead in both her films, well so was it Farah's direction or SRK that actually made the films a hit? Well what difference does it make since SRK has also produced both the films and both of them have made huge profits.


Mandira Bedi with Madhur Bhandarkarat 2008 Zee Astitva Awards


Madhur Bhandarkar received the Zee Astitva Award for directing realistic and hard hitting films. Madhur is one of the unique and few directors who still believe that his films should have great content and a poignant message. Since his last few films have proved to be hits, producers and top actresses are now vying to work with him. Well who wouldn't want to work with a hit director, what say Priyanka, Bipasha, Kangana?
