Here are the winners who gave speeches -

Devi Sri Prasad (best Telugu music director for Varsham): I would like to thank MS Raju for making my dream of becoming music director true. He gave me 3 films - Devi, Varsham and Nuvvostanante Nenoddantana - and made good music for all those films. Right now I am also doing MS Raju's Pournami. I also feel great because Varsham, Shankar Dada MBBS and Arya for which I scored music have made it big at Filmfare. I dedicate this award to my loving parents who encouraged me to become a music director.

Prakash Raj (Best villain in Tamil for Gilli): The best actor for villain and character artist was established in Filmfare awards around 3 years back. I am happy to tell you that for the past three years I have been winning awards at Filmfare consecutively.

Vivek (Best comedy actor in Tamil for Peralagan): Whenever I see the figure on Filnfare award, it reminds me of a lady on diet. I think all heroines should follow this lady on diet to keep their figure under control. I feel every wife should follow it. If our wives don't follow it, we will be forced to follow the heroines. I have got this filmfare award for for 3 times in a row for films Minnale, Run and Peralagan.

Madhavan (Best character artist in Tamil for Ayudha Ezhuthu (Yuva in Telugu)): It was Mani Ratnam who gave me such a raw role in Yuva film for me who had been doing chocolate hero roles. I owe this award to Mani Ratnam.

Srikanth (Best character actor in Telugu for Shankar Dada MBBS): This is my first filmfare award. I owe this award to Chiranjeevi as he is the one who selected me for this role and took care of my dressing and characterization. I had been doing soft hero roles so far and Chiranjeevi took a brave decision of making me act in a pucca mass role. Thanks to Annayya Chiranjeevi.

Cheran (Best film in Tamil - Autograph): This is the 4th award for Autograph as best film for Autograph in various film festivals. I dedicate this award to Tamil film lovers.

Paruchuri Brothers (on behalf of MS Raju for the best film Varsham): MS Raju's Okkadu has won 4 filmfare awards last year. MS Raju's Varsham won 5 awards this year. We are expecting 6 awards for MS Raju's NVNV next yea. We are currently working for Pournami film now. It is script which is most important thing for any film. I hope that Filmfare award committee would consider giving awards to writers as well, as we got no filmfare awards so far even though we worked for 300+ films.

P Vasu (Best director for Kannada film Apta Mitra): I am glad to receive filmfare award. More so because I won this award for Kannada film. I dedicate this award to late great actress Soundarya.

Sukumar (Best director for Telugu film Arya): I saw many people dedicating their awards to parents. It is boring. Is it not? But, I am still proud to dedicate this award to my loving parents. I would like to thank my master Ram Mohan Reddy who helped me to reach this position. When a team wins, the cup would be received by the captain. Likewise, I don't treat this award as a personal award. I think that I am receiving this best director award as a captain for the work done by the entire team of Arya film.

Trisha (Best heroine in Telugu for Varsham): I would like to thank MS Raju who is my Godfather, best friend and mentor. I would like to thank each and every unit member of varsham for this award. Hyderabad is like my home away from home.

Mammootty (Best actor for Malayalam film Kazhacha): I feel bit sad to receive this award as this function says Filmfare awards for South India. I am an Indian first. Why do we differentiate between South and North? Why can't we have these awards at India level? We all are Indians first. I would like to request Filmfare to give away awards at national level instead of segregating as South and North. I played the role of a touring talkies operator who tumbles upon a refugee kid of Gujarath who is a victim of earthquake in Kazhacha film.

Surya (Best actor in Tamil for Peralagan): Incidentally today is my birthday. I would like to dedicate this award to the team of Peralagan.

Chiranjeevi: I was very confident till 10 minutes when the anchors announced that I would be receiving award from Rekha. Rekha was my dream girl. I grew up adoring her. I would love to know how she maintains her body so slim for so many years. If she could tell me that I would become her sishya (protégé) for rest of my life. Incidentally this is my 7th filmfare award. When I got my 1st filmfare awards, Kamal Hassan has already won 14 filmfare awards. At that time, I thought that I would be great if I could get at least half of what Kamal has got. With this award, I got half of what Kamal Hassan got. Now my goal is to get another 7 so that I could equal him. The Nandi awards take into consideration about artistic value of the films and consider only straight Telugu films. But histrionics are beyond remakes. I feel that Filmfare considers real talent and popularity. I respect Filmfare awards.

Here is an interesting conversation between Rekha and Chiranjeevi

Rekha: You promised me a role against you in your films 20 years back? What happened to it? if you give a whistle once, I would come to Hyderabad and act in your film (Nuvvokkasari whistle veste nenu parigettuku vachesta).

Chiranjeevi: Tell me the secret of your beauty and figure?

Chiranjeevi: Sure
