MACAU, July 7 (Agencies): Vidya Balan took home the Best Actress award at IIFA 2013 for her portrayal of a pregnant woman in search of her husband in Kahaani while Ranbir Kapoor was named Best Actor for Barfi! here today.

While receiving her award from Abhishek Bachchan, Vidya made a special mention of her director Shoojit Sircar.

"I want to dedicate this award to my director Shoojit. This award belongs to him. No one has ever loved anyone else's wife as Shoojit loved Vidya Bagchi (name of her character) in the film. I am never short of awards and won my first award at IIFA Amsterdam after I played Abhishek's wife in Paa," she said.

Ranbir, who played a deaf-mute boy in Barfi!, was not present at the ceremony and the gong was accepted on his behalf by the film's director Anurag Basu.

These trophies are the Ranbir and Vidya's second best actor awards after they bagged the same honours for Rockstar and The Dirty Picture respectively.

Basu's romantic-comedy 'Barfi!, which won many awards throughout the year, bagged the best film, director, story and music awards at the 14th edition of the Bollywood extravaganza leaving behind Agneepath, Vicky Donor and Gangs of Wasseypur.

Former couple Ranbir and Deepika Padukone won best Jodi award.

Deepika, on accepting the award, said, "I love Ranbir and (am) missing him."

Vicky Donor stars Yami Gautam and Ayushmann Khurrana won the best debut awards in the female and male categories, respectively.

English Vinglish helmer Gauri Shinde bagged the best debut director award.

"It feels like I am living in a dream. This is going to be my last debut award. In future, if I don't get any award I will be happy in every situation," Ayushmann said.

The glitzy ceremony kicked off with a dance by Bachchan while other celebrities like Sridevi, Prabhudeva, Sushant Singh Rajput, Madhuri Dixit and Deepika Padukone, too, gave scintillating performances.
