    The highlight of the night was host Salman Khan who looked very dashing in a black suit.

    Bollywood celebrities dressed in their best attires attended the 8th Renault Star Guild Awards held at the Yash Raj Studios in Mumbai, India on 16th February 2013. Salman Khan hosted his first Bollywood awards event along with his Dabangg co-star Sonakshi Sinha.

    Talking to reporters on the red carpet, a tense Salman Khan said: “Everybody gets nervous when you do something for the first time, even I am nervous, I just thought… let’s try… how it feels to host (such functions). It is a very difficult thing, you have to remember many things, listen properly to others and not get carried away.”

    Although Salman Khan was presenting for the first time at an awards ceremony, he did not fail to entertain. The stars took to twitter to praise him for his work on the night.

    Singer and VJ Sophie Choudry tweeted: “Still laughing from all the antics [you] got up to as the host of the Screen Guild Awards last nite!Full Madness/Masti SK style!”

    The big winners for the night included films Vicky Donor [2012] and Barfi! [2012], raking in a total of thirteen awards for the night. Musical goddess Lata Mangeshkar received the ‘Nightingale of the Century Award’ for her outstanding contribution to playback singing.

    2013 Star Guild Awards

    Actress turn singer Priyanka Chopra took home the ‘Special Female Star of the Year’ award for Barfi! [2012] and Agneepath [2012]. The actress had an amazing year releasing her new single In My City featuring will.i.am and two hit films. While she deserved the award, there were many who felt Sridevi should have been considered for her brilliant performance in English Vinglish [2012].

    Priyanka expressed her delight on twitter saying:

    “Thank you Apsara for the star of the year award. It means a lot because its the film fraternity. Thank u to the teams of Agneepath and Barfi!”
