10 Backstage Highlights  Of The Filmfare Awards


  1. Shah Rukh Khan and Kapil Sharma who co-hosted the show hardly had time to rehearse together. They were both busy with their individual commitments. But when they met they added a lot of their own lines to the written lines . Shah Rukh and Kapil are very comfortable with one another.There was  a lot of give-and-take andKapil was allowed to make digs on stage about Shah Rukh’s age, about buying awards, etc.
  2. Kapil also made digs about AnilKapoor dyeing his beard. “You may see some grey hairs in son Harshvardhan’s beard,  but not AnilSir’s beard,” guffawed Sharma. “Yeh Kapilthodazyadaboltahai,” a friend of  the Kapoorkhandaan sighed after the show.
  3. KapilSharma approached Rekha in the audience to do a takeoff on ShatrughanSinha which she sportingly did. ShatrughanSinha andRekha have a history. For many years they didn’t speak to one  another. All that is water under the bridge now.
  4. Kapil asked Sridevi whether she feeds idli or paratha to her husband for breakfast.When she said it was idli-sambhar for breakfastKapil quipped, ‘Then how come he resembles a Paratha?’  Apparently the joke on her husband’s  girth was not appreciated by Sridevi.She made her displeasure quite clear.
  5. By far the best act of the evening was Tiger Shroff’s tribute toHrithik Rohan and Alia Bhatt’s tribute to all the screen queens fromSridevi to Kareena Kapoor Khan. Both Tiger and Alia had done their homework and mastered the original steps.
  6. Critics’ Award winner Shahid Kapoor expressed huge admiration for Manoj Bajpai who shared the award with him.Shahid and Manojwon awards for playing non-conformists in Udta Punjab and  Aligarh, respectively.We now hear Hansal Mehta plans to cast Manoj andShahid together.Aligarh meets Punjab?
  7. Notable absentees. Arijit Singh and Aamir Khan. Arijit, it seems, is off  awards after his run-in with [tooltip id=”88b6af99531f838ed90aed058b7d870a”][tooltip id=”c1b465420d07c688942ed18eadfd9f92″ keyword_color=”#000000″ background_color=”#ffffff”][tooltip id=”4db8f5608d45f5de7881d9bce162f4bf”]Salman Khan[/tooltip][/tooltip][/tooltip] at  an awards  function in 2014. As for Aamir, frantic feelers were sent to theDangal winner to get him to the function. Despite pressure from powerful places Aamir was unrelenting.That’s what makes him who he is.
  8. KaranJohar who hosted a segment stayed away from all homo-erotic humour. According to sources the decision to keep the function clean was collectively taken by the organizers and KaranJohar. “Every time he goes on stage there are gay giggles, It’s become predictable,” says a source.
  9. Sunil Grover and KikuSarda were  priceless as Dharmendra and Sunny Deol. A word of  caution, though.The Deols do not take kindly to being satirized. In fact the Indian entertainment industry is  filled with extra-touchy egos.They make Trump jokes. But wouldn’t dare take digs at Indian politicians.
  10. ShabanaAzmi was very uncomfortable doing a romantic song with her husband JavedAkhtar on stage.  She believes there is no need to turn awards functions into a tamasha.And a lot of her peers agree with her. Most of them secretly.Some  like Aamir Khan, AjayDevgan, KaunRanaut and John Abraham quite openly.
