The films were selected by the Jury in the Official Selection consisting of 35 films in Competition (10 Full–length feature film, 12 Short–length feature films and 13 Documentary films). "This is wonderful! I am overwhelmed with this news. It is an honour not only for me and my co–producer Ronnie Screwvala, but for the entire team of JODHAA AKBAR. And I would like to thank the Jury for it. I am especially happy and proud that Hrithik won the Best Actor. His portrayal of Akbar is a magnificent one, full of nuances and detailing which is very rarely seen on screen.
