Mumbai Mirror wrote about the ongoing proceedings of this year’s Filmfare Awards, and we must say some of the jokes Shah Rukh Khan (the best host in the world) cracked were hilarious! Here are some of the things that totally happened (apart from Ranveer Singh touching the feet of Deepika Padukone‘s parents when he won his award).
Arjun Kapoor joked that without make-up he looked like Amitabh Bachchan in Paa and broke into a Bhangra, dragging Ayushmann Khurrana along.
Karan Johar complimented the hot Parineeti Chopra and said that the “extravaganza is not about coffees but trophies”. He then announced that the show couldn’t begin without the couple, “Ranveer Kapoor and Deepika Padukone”. Slip of tongue or part of the script? No one will know!
“Jab Salman Khan ki hogi entry baki sab shows ki hogi dysentery.” Yeh dosti hai kamaal ki!” He then said Barack Obama would be the host next year and that “B se sab kuch chalta hai, Bajrangi (Bhaijaan), Bajirao (Mastani) except Bombay Velvet.” He gave a warm hug to Ranveer Singh, who, while introducing the nominees for Best Choreography, danced to a medley of Bajirao Mastani‘s Pinga, Dil Dhadakne Do and Rang Do Laal. He was then joined by Varun Dhawan for ABCD2‘s Sun Sathiya and Malhari. Shah Rukh and Madhuri Dixit also danced to Tu Heer Meri.
When Deepika Padukone was posing at the red carpet Amitabh, Jaya and Shweta Bachchan arrived and waited politely. She apologised and invited him over. Kriti Sanon paid a tribute to yesteryear actresses with a mash-up of their golden hits. SRK and Sallu continued warming our hearts by shaking a leg to Prem Ratan Dhan Payo‘s title track.
Best night ever!
