  • Max Stardust Awards 2013 Winners

    On Republic Day, the annual Stardust Awards were held at the MMRDA grounds in Bandra, Mumbai. Award ceremonies are not just about the glitz, the glamour and the red carpet. There’s much more to it! While Shahrukh Khan and Priyanka Chopra bagged two awards each, Big B surprised everyone with some ‘Chumma Chumma’ on stage.

    Stardust Awards 2013

    Amitabh stole the show when he danced to the famous song 'Jumma Chumma De De.'

    The 11th Max Stardust Awards were held on Saturday 26th January 2013 at the Bandra Kurla Complex in Mumbai, India. At the glittering awards ceremony top honours went to Sri Devi and Priyanka Chopra who jointly won the best actress [drama] award for the films English Vinglish [2012] and Barfi! [2012].

    Priyanka who was delighted on winning two awards, expressed her happiness saying:

    “It feels great to hold both the trophies. I worked really hard for ‘Barfi’ and it was a challenging film for me. So it feels great when it is acknowledged.”

    Bollywood Megastar Amitabh Bachchan thanked Stardust for respecting him with the ‘Star of the Century Award.’

    “I would like to thank stardust for awarding me today. It has been 44 years in the industry and I am really grateful to the Indian audience for keeping me alive in the industry from so many years,” said Big B.




    Stardust Awards 2013The ‘Badshah of Bollywood,’ Shahrukh Khan received his first two awards of the year for the film ‘Jab Tak Hai Jaan.’ Shahrukh did not attend the event, as he was meeting some of his fans at a show in Birmingham, England.

    Each year ‘Magna Publishing’ along with media partner SET Max organise this event, in which top celebrities from the world of Bollywood come together on one platform. These are the fourth Bollywood based awards to be held this year.

    The awards ceremony, which established in 2003 has now become a well-recognised event. In 2013, Stardust Awards were presented to film artists for achieving excellence in their respective fields.

    Bollywood celebrities who attended this magnificent event included: Amitabh Bachchan, Alia Bhatt, Priyanka Chopra, Sonankshi Sinha, Siddharth Roy Kapur, Vidya Balan, Parineeti Chopra, Anushka Sharma, Farah Khan, Anurag Basu, Kabir Khan, Mini Mathur, Ranveer Singh, Jiah Khan, Sonali Bendre, Chunkey Pandey, Aftab Shivdasani, Raveena Tandon. Vyjayanthimala Bali, Prem Chopra, Gulshan Grover, Ranjeet and Satish Kaushik.

    Award ceremonies are often like a PR exercise, as celebrities are much more relaxed when they mingle with one another and the media. The 2013 Stardust Awards were very much like a public affair.

    Arjun Kapoor and Ranveer Singh were spotted displaying some ‘dostana’ [friendship]. While newly weds Vidya Balan and Siddharth Roy Kapur were beaming backstage, a shrinking Anushka Sharma was seen hugging Kareena Kapoor. Anushka also took the opportunity to catch up with buddy Karan Johar.

    Stardust Awards 2013Outfits worn by the stars varied from dashing Gucci jackets to fashionable gowns. Gowns have become very popular at red carpets, because many of the ladies acting in Bollywood today happen to look very fit and fabulous.

    At the start of the awards show a minutes silence was observed for Bollywood legends Yash Chopra and Rajesh Khanna who sadly passed away last year. Hosted by Ayushmann Khurrana, the awards ceremony included sizzling performances from Kareena Kapoor and Sonakshi Sinha.

    Amitabh stole the show when he danced to the famous song ‘Jumma Chumma De De.’ Not only did he perform to the song, but he also kissed the beautiful ladies who joined him on stage. Amitabh rounded up his perfect night on twitter saying:

    “They asked me to dance to ‘Jumma Chumma’ (from the film ‘Hum’). I asked during ‘Jumma…’ who do I have to kiss? And all the lovely ladies in the front row ran up the stage – guess who?”

    “Vidya, Priyanka, Parineeti (Chopra), Anushka(Sharma), Bipasha (Basu)…and I gave them all a peck. It’s been a generous day,” he further tweeted.
