Director Zoya Akhtar's feel-good drama Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara (ZNMD) beat Shah Rukh Khan's sci-fi magnum opus Ra.One in this year's International Indian Film Academy awards honouring technical excellence. The Hrithik Roshan-starrer won five awards, including Best Cinematography and Best Screenplay, while Khan's superhero production won four technical awards, including Best Production Designer and Best Special-Effects. Incidentally, these two films face stiff competition in some of the popular-awards categories as well.

Vidya Balan's risqué drama The Dirty Picture also opened its account in the technical-excellence category by taking home awards including the Best Dialogue and Best Costume Designing.

The winners will be decorated in the glittering ceremony that will be held in Singapore from June 7-9.
