Husband-wife duo Pankaj Kapoor, Supriya Pathak
take the comedy cake

in the same category of Best Actor In A Comic Role.

SSays Pankaj Kapoor, who won this honour
for the second consecutive year, "It's always great to
win an award. But this year it's special because my wife has
won it too. That's really great. But I wish that television
would take comedy more seriously than they do right now."

for the best actress in a comic role
Winning the best female actor in a comic
role was special for Supriya Pathak. "I never thought
of comedy as my forte. I have always been known as a tragic
actress. But I must say that the character of Hansa is so
lovable and sweet that it's been very easy to fall in love
with her. Hansa is everything Supriya Pathak isn't in real
life. And that's why it's been a huge challenge to enact her."
