Farhan Akhtar will be conferred with best director award for Don 2 - The King Is Back, at the awards ceremony scheduled for January 21, while Anil Kapoor will be conferred the hero of all-time hit award.


Filmmaker Ramesh Sippy, veteran lyricist Gulzar and Film Federation of India chairman T.P. Aggarwal will be given lifetime achievement awards.


Ekta Kapoor will be honoured for being a successful film and TV producer.


On the television front, NDTV has been named the best Hindi news channel while the Asian Academy of Film and TV has been named the best institute for film and TV.
