62nd Filmfare Awards 2017 Winners

best friends Shahrukh Khan and Karan Johar hosted the awards together

The 62nd Jio Filmfare Awards 2017 beckoned the Bollywood world for an evening of glitzy entertainment and non-stop glamour.

Taking place on the 14th of January, the annual celebration recognised some of the biggest films and notable actors that reigned in 2016.

While arguably the year was filled with many hit and miss films, several stood out for their raw creativity and bravery. Using art as a medium for social and political change and giving a voice to the forgotten underdogs.

Dangal, Ae Dil Hai Mushkil and Neerja were all big winners of the night. Dangal took the award for ‘Best Film’, as well as ‘Best Director’ for Nitesh Tiwari and ‘Best Actor (Male)’ for Aamir Khan.

Alia Bhatt took the win for ‘Best Actor (Female)’ for her role in the drug-filled Udta Punjab, while co-star Shahid Kapoor won the ‘Filmfare Critics Award for Best Actor (Male)’ alongside Manoj Bajpayee for Aligarh.

Alia said of her win:

“It’s very close to my heart [Udta Punjab]. Thank you, Shahid, for sending the script to me. Today is a very special day for me. Sridevi ji receiving it from you is an honour. Another reason is my sister is here. Got her out of home.”

The Critics Film Choice went to Neerja, while Sonam Kapoor took the ‘Filmfare Critics Award for Best Actor (Female)’ for her portrayal of the real-life flight attendant Neerja Bhanot.

Other performances came from the likes of Salman Khan, Tiger Shroff and Varun Dhawan. Alia Bhatt paid tribute to Bollywood’s evergreen beauties like Madhuri Dixit Nene, Karisma Kapoor, Aishwarya Rai and Sridevi, while Sonakshi Sinha wowed the audience of the biggest dance numbers of the year.
