Despite a plethora of award shows now clogging up the Bollywood calendar, the Filmfare Awards is still considered the biggie – the Indian Oscars, if you wish.
And judging by the action on the Red Carpet for the awards, which was held in Mumbai yesterday, even the Oscars would do well to keep up with the fashionistas on display.
While gowns and sleek silhouettes dominated what the stars wore, the traditional Indian ‘sari’ was not to be outdone.
Ranbir Kapoor and Priyanka Chopra co-hosted the 59th Idea Filmfare Awards 2013 held at YRF Studios, Andheri.
Priyanka Chopra, Ranveer Singh and Shahid Kapoor all performed and the winners this year accepted the coveted black statuette - dubbed the black lady - which was digitally 3-D printed to celebrate the 100 years of Hindi cinema.
The awards will be telecast exclusively on Sony Entertainment Television on January 26 from 8pm onwards.
