A runaway hit comedy based on the teachings of Mahatma Gandhi took top honours at the second Global Indian Film Awards in a star-studded ceremony in Malaysia. "Lage Raho Munnabhai" (Carry on Munnabhai), directed by Vidhu Chopra and touted as one of Bollywood's biggest money spinners of the year, edged out highly fancied "Rang De Basanti" (Colour me Saffron) by director Rakyesh Mehra. Chopra also won the award for best story for his movie which has revived the decades-old teachings of Gandhi's non-violence movement for modern viewers. Ivy Sam reports.
