clothed in their glamorous best! Some of the eminent names were, yesteryears mega star Poonam Dhillon,

The event kickstarted with anchors Jay Bhanushali and Karan V. Grover
making their entry in an auto rickshaw, Mumbai’s ubiquitous mode of transport for the common man. Many more well known celebrities were brought into the grounds in shining vintage cars.
The charming threesome – Jay Bhanushali, Mona Singh and Karan. V. Grover
- kept the audiences in splits of laughter with their witty wise*****s throughout the evening as anchors of the awards ceremony. Some of the most memorable performances of the evening included a heartwarming dance performance by the nation’s newest sweethearts, Ankita Lokhande and Hiten Tejwani,
your very own Archana and Manav of Pavitra Rishta.
The performance traced the survival of their onscreen love affair amidst Mumbai’s struggle for existence with a stunning visual element in the backdrop. Lovely (Ragini Nandwani),
the chulbuli bahu
of Mrs. Bindeshwari Kaushik,
surprised everyone with her magic act in which she made her stern saas (Vibha Chibber)
disappear from the stage!
The crowd went into a state of frenzy as the three handsome hunks, Karan Grover, Kinshuk Mahajan and Himanshoo Malhotra
turned into desi superheroes - G-One, Singham and Bodyguard
- to save their damsels in distress. There was one fun filled act where Hitler Didi’
s family sang a parody of songs for her in an attempt to bring a smile on her face.
The evening also had its own share of historical drama on stage with the Shobha Somnath Ki
swaying to aromantic number and later *****ing the evil Ghaznavi (Vikramjeet Virk).
Senior actors showed the world that ‘even we can dance saala’
with their superbly choreographed act that paid a tribute to Bollywood’
