Filmfare 2015: Who won What
Queen and Haider dominate the Britannia Filmafare 2015
Yash Raj Studios was the place to be for star gazers as the brightest names of the Bollywood constellation descended for the 60th Filmare awards. The Filmfare awards are one of the most prestigious awards for the film fraternity in India. The award function was hosted by Karan Johar, Alia Bhatt and Kapil Sharma.
Vikas Bahl’s coming-of-age drama Queen triumphed at the 60th Filmfare awards, winning in key categories including best film, best director and best actress for its lead star Kangana Ranaut. Kangana, who saw off competition from Alia Bhatt, Madhuri Dixit, Priyanka Chopra, Rani Mukerji and Sonam Kapoor in the best actress category, was not present to accept her award.
Vishal Bhardwaj’s Haider, which is based on ‘Hamlet’-a play written by William Shakespeare closely followed Queen with five wins which included a black lady for Shahid Kapoor in the best actor category and best supporting honours for Tabu and Kay Kay Menon. Set in Kashmir, Shahid Kapoor plays Haider, the male protagonist, who is in search of his father who has ‘disappeared’. The talented and versatile actor worked hard for this film and this award was long due. Accepting the Black Lady, Shahid said he could not believe that he won the coveted award.
Arjun and Varun pay tributes to Bollywood Icons
Arjun Kapoor’s act was a tribute to `contemporary superstars’ – Salman Khan, Shah Rukh Khan, Akshay Kumar and Ajay Devgn. He performed on the “Main toh superman Salman ka fan” number from his recently released film Tevar. The actor who has been making round on the social media for AIB’s Roast video also performed on another version of “Main toh superman Shahrukh ka fan” to pay tribute to Sharukh Khan. He followed this up with an Indiawale performance and also matched steps to Singham Returns’ Aata majhi sataklee.
Varun paid tribute to the jumping Jacks of the past decades, from Shammi Kapoor to Mithun Chakraborty and Govinda, with hit chartbusters like Disco Deewane and Tera dhyaan kidhar hai concluding with the medley from Badlapur hit Jee karda.
India’s version of Step Up-“Any Body Can Dance 2’s” leading lady, Shraddha Kapoor showed that she could dance, as she juggled between Kathak and Salsa and Dance Basanti and Teri galiyaan.
