The sleeper hits of 2014 have left behind big-budget blockbusters 'PK', 'Happy New Year' and 'Kick'.
'2 States' has been nominated in various categories, including Best Film, Best Director, Best Actor in a Supporting Role (Male), Best Actor in a Supporting Role (Female), Best Music and Best Playback Singer (Male).
On the other hand, Kangana Ranaut's 'Queen' stands a chance to win in categories including Best Film, Best Director, Best Actor in a Leading Role (Female), Best Actor in a Supporting Role (Female) and Best Music.
Apart from 'Queen' and '2 States', the Best Film category includes 'Mary Kom', 'Haider' and 'PK'.
Abhishek Varman ('2 States'), Anurag Kashyap ('Ugly'), Rajkumar Hirani ('PK'), Vikas Bahl ('Queen') and Vishal Bhardwaj ('Haider') are in the race for the Best Director title.
Despite striking gold at the box office with 'Kick' and 'Happy New Year', Bollywood's leading Khans - Salman and Shah Rukh - have been neglected in the Best Actor in a Leading Role category.
The complete nomination list is available on filmfare.com, while the awards ceremony will take place January 31 in Mumbai.
