The Filmfare Awards, a prestigious event in Bollywood that recognizes the best of Indian cinema, recently crowned the gritty gangster biopic Gangubai Kathiawadi and the comedy-drama Badhaai Do as its big winners. The 68th Filmfare Awards, which took place at the Jio World Convention Centre in Mumbai on Thursday night, was hosted by popular Bollywood actor Salman Khan and featured stunning performances by Tiger Shroff and Vicky Kaushal, among others.

Gangubai Kathiawadi, which is based on the true story of real-life gangster Ganga Harjivandas Kathiawadi, won 10 awards, including Best Film, Best Actor in a Leading Role (Female) for Alia Bhatt, and Best Director for Sanjay Leela Bhansali, who is known for his lavish period dramas. Bhatt, who will soon make her Hollywood debut in the spy thriller Heart of Stone, donned a glittery black off-shoulder gown by Lebanese designer Tony Ward as a homage to the Filmfare trophy, also known as “the black lady.”

Badhaai Do, which tells the story of a couple who enter into a marriage of convenience to hide their sexuality from their conservative families, won the Best Film (Critics) award, with its leads Bhumi Pednekar and Rajkummar Rao receiving the Best Actress (Critics) and Best Actor awards, respectively. The film received six awards in total, including Best Supporting Actress for Sheeba Chaddha, Best Screenplay, and Best Story.

In addition to popular awards, the Filmfare Awards also give out separate “critics awards” to recognize critically acclaimed films and performances. Acclaimed actress Tabu was named Best Actress (Critics) for her role in Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2, sharing the award with Pednekar.

Finally, veteran actor Prem Chopra was presented with the Lifetime Achievement Award. The 87-year-old has appeared in over 380 films throughout his 60-year career.
