  • This remimded me of bajirao mastani once again… Wat a performance by Ranveer..marathi accent. .plus tone of marathi in hindi words like aurat n bahadur many more he is guy to watch out.. Not to forget so called 1000cr dilwale result in clash.

  • Akshay and ajay again ignored…. akshay in baby was one of the best performance last year.

  • Both gud movies .. BM difficult n risky to make but Bajrangi bhaijan was better movie than bajirao maatani… only movie tht bought my tear so many times.
    Wen salman miss money n chase her to meet last tm at market with kk song in bachground… Superb

  • Fair enough!!

    Baby wasn’t nominated in any award functions last year …Hope to see Airlift at least nominated this time around!!

    Ranveer deserves in my opinion, he was brilliant in BM.

  • My best films for this year till now:


    Haven’t seen Kapoor n sons,Aligarh etc.

    Favourite performances:
    Randeep in sarbjit
    Akki in Airlift
    Srk in FAN

  • SRK should win best actor for Dilwale and Rohit Shetty should win beat director. Dilwale was the greatest film ever made, better than Mughal e Azam and Sholay.

  • Greatest humans who have ever lived
    1.Shahrukh Khan
    2.Isaac Newton
    3.Albert Einstein
    4.William Shakespeare
    5.Leonardo da Vinci

  • where is akshay kumar nomination for baby film in best performance of leading role…………….. his performance is best of the year in 2015.

  • This is just a copy paste of Filmfare awards!!
    nothing’s new. its all messed up and obvious.
    no wonder people like Aamir khan ‘never attends award shows’

  • Finally i watxhed bajirao mastani …liked d movie …good performances by dp pc….tanvi azmi wow……and ranveer was splendid…d swagger…d marathi accent…kudos

  • These awards are just limited to bankable stars and big films . Nawazuddin gave the best performance of the year in a lead role but did he even got a nomination ? No

  • But where is Duniya ka sabse bada superstar for Dilwale? wasnt he nominated for the filmfare? Oh I forgot that he is no longer a superstar.

  • Some people say SRK has so many filmfare awards, when Amir/Ajay/Salman has boycotted taking or attending awards then surely there is no competition.And whenever Hrithik comes with a good movie then SRK loses award.

  • OMG …..so called mr king khan came up with top jodi top director top youngster …..but not a single nomination ……burnol needed for poor srkians

  • Amit ji’s crapgiri in PIKU is so overrated that he finds a nomination everywhere while Nawaz doesn’t find one despite the classic Manjhi …!

  • best actor – ranveer
    best actress – kangana
    supporting role – nawazudin
    negative role – nawazudin
    lyrics – agar tum sath ho

  • @Trueteller (LOL u’re name itself is a joke)
    You mean LOLMAN refuses to take awards. That’s the joke of the century. In 2012, he got many awards for Ready and Bodyguard and this year, for BB just because he because of the movie did well. Did he refuse them? . He doesn’t even deserve a nomination. SRK atleast acts in his movies.
    As far as I know, only Aamir khan, akshay kumar and ajay devgn refuse awards.
    And when did SRK lose to Hrithik. Pls tell me I wud like to hear it.
