Here is the complete list of winners of Filmfare Awards 2017

Fans and Bollywood celebs are in for excitement as the 62nd Filmfare Awards 2017 has started off with a bang. The award function, which is taking place in Worli, Mumbai is one of the most anticipated award shows of the year. The audience looks forward to the award function to root for their stars and movies.

From Sonam Kapoor’s Neerja, Aamir Khan’s Dangal to Alia Bhatt’s Kapoor and Sons, we are here to tell you who are taking the black lady to their place. Interestingly, this year, the jury had a tough task to choose the best among the many spectacular performances that charmed us all the way. On top of that, you can’t ask for more when the Baadshah of romance aka Shah Rukh Khan is hosting the show. He has charmed the audience with his impromptu skills in the past and this time it will be no different. Besides Shah Rukh, the award function boasts the names of several biggies from the industry who will be attending the event.

Filmfare Awards 2017 were recently surrounded by the controversy when the jury members decided to keep Akshay Kumar and his movies away from the nomination. This is quite surprising since Akshay came with Rustom and Airlift that were critically acclaimed by the critics and loved by the audience. Having said that, the audience should definitely wait for the power packed stage performances of Jacqueline Fernandez, Varun Dhawan and Alia Bhatt.
