Awards

The 62nd Filmfare Awards were held recently in Mumbai and were hosted by Karan Johar and Shahrukh Khan. Almost all of Bollywood’s glitterati descended for this event to celebrate the cinema that we enjoyed during the year.

Dangal enjoyed the top place at the awards, sweeping off the major ones like Best Actor (Aamir Khan), Best Film and Best Director. Alia Bhat bagged the Best Actor Female award for her scintillating performance in Udta Punjab.
