    Default Re: 56th Filmfare award winners and happenings

    SRK and Madhuri mesmerise the audience
    Madhuri Dixit dressed in a baby pink lehanga choli emerges from a beautiful set filled with fancy smoke to create an ethereal ambience. Shah Rukh Khan in a black pathani dress is singing songs in praise of Madhuri from 'Main Agar Kahu' (Om Shanti Om), 'Tujh Main Rab Dikhta Hai' (Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi), 'Tere Naina Tere Naina Re' (My Name is Khan) and 'Arey Re Arey Yeh Kya Huwa' (Dil To Pagal Hai). Their chemistry is simply superb!

    Salman vs. Shah Rukh
    Imran Khan and Ranbir Kapoor are now gearing up for their next act. After spoofing Guzaarish, the duo is now getting ready to spoof Dabangg and My Name Is Khan where Imran plays Salman and Ranbir plays Shah Rukh. You can't miss this one!

    I look as good as Aishwarya: Ranbir
    Imran Khan and Ranbir Kapoor have a hilarious act in store. While Imran plays Hrithik Roshan from Guzaarish, Ranbir becomes Aishwarya Rai Bachchan complete with a big flower in his hair and a long red ghagra kind of skirt.

    Imran seems to have taken his magician role very seriously and when we asked if marriage has changed him he couldn't agree more. "Yes, marriage has changed me. I have become more dramatic now", said the actor.

    Also, when we asked Imran what is the one magic trick that he would like to play on Ranbir, he replied, "I would like to wax his chest." On the other hand, Ranbir is super excited about his look of Aishwarya and declared, "I look as good as Aishwarya." You bet!

    Sonu completes 20 years in the industry
    Sonu Niigam took the audience to a different level when he started his live act by crooning the heart warming theme song from Titanic My heart will go on. It was undoubtedly an awesome start. The magic in his voice like always, didn't fail to impress and like the original song visual, the stage lit up with aqua marine lights. The singer had a special reason to perform live as it's a special day for him as he completes 20 years in the industry. While performing, he came down the stage to touch Yash Chopra's feet as the veteran director is the one who gave Sonu a break.

    It's also a special year for Yash Chopra as he completes 51 years in the industry. He said, "I think only movies. I have no other ambition." Sonu Niigam also sang the song Ae Meri Johra Jabeen in honour of Yash Chopra.

    Sonu then went and greeted Farah Khan with a warm hug. He fondly recalls the time in Dubai where Farah paid his taxi fare. Dedicated to Farah, Sonu croons 'Kiska Hai Yeh Tumko Intezar Main Hoon Na' and Farah joins in too. Both then went up to Anu Malik and the 3 of them jam up and complete the song. Then they all go up to David Dhawan and sing 'Jeene Ke Hai Char Din'.

    Sonu now goes up to Rekha and Compliments her. She shares her beauty tips. Sonu asked her how do you feel that everyone loves you and she promptly replied, "But those ones you want to be loved by do not love you." Her reply stunned the audience. And everybody knew whom she was hinting towards. Rekha and Sonu then break into the song 'Dil Cheez Kya Hai'. Once again, Rekha stuns the audience by singing so well.

    After Rekha, it's SRK's turn. He says, "I owe a lot to singers. Thanks Sonu." Both sing the song Kal Ho Na Ho and SRK also does his trademark steps.

    Sonu then heads towards Shatrughan Sinha who goes down memory lane and gives some tips to young stars, "Prove yourself better than the best or prove yourself different than the rest - Shotgun's mantra to youngsters. They both sing Aaj Mere Yaar Ki Shaadi Hai.

    I look as gorgeous as the Filmfare Trophy: Mugdha
    Mugdha Godse walked the red carpet in a gold gown designed by Swapnil Shinde and said, "I am the most gorgeous tonight. I myself look like the Filmfare trophy!" The lady also posed standing like the trophy. We wonder who will get to take this one home!

    I'm sleeping with the Black lady tonight: Prachi Desai
    Prachi Desai is very excited as this is her first Filmfare nomination. When we asked what will she do if she wins tonight, the young actress couldn't hide her excitement and said, "I am going to sleep with the Black lady tonight."

    Looking forward at 2011, Prachi is excited about her film 'Joker' and she also asks us to wait and watch as a big announcement is coming up soon.

    Hrithik & Madhavan share cold vibes
    Hrithik Roshan and R Madhavan walked in the venue around the same time. The two stars were just a few steps away from each other but didn't even greet each other. We wonder the reason behind this cold vibe!

    New hottie in Ayan's life!
    Ayan Mukherjee walked in with Katrina Kaif's younger sister Isabelle. While all eyes were on the gorgeous lady who looks very similar to her elder sibling, Ayan took the lead and started introducing her to everyone. Hmm... we see something hot brewing there!

    SRK welcomes Arbaaz-Malaika
    Arbaaz Khan has just walked in with his +++y arm candy Malaika Arora. Talking about Dabangg and Salman he said, "Salman is not here tonight as he is shooting. And it doesn't matter to me if he wins or not. For me he is the winner. And then we have got so many nominations so it's an achievement in itself. We are not here to applaud just ourselves but also applaud other's work from the film fraternity."

    We asked Malaika what can we look forward to after Munni and she said, "These things are not planned. They just happen impromptu."

    Once inside the auditorium, Arbaaz and Malaika were greeted by Shah Rukh Khan who hugged them very warmly.

    Preity looks gorgeous in red sari
    Preity Zinta is looking beautiful in a red sari designed by Manish Malhotra. The actress is excited and is cheering for all her friends nominated this year. When asked who her pick is for the Best Actor Award, Preity says, "Whoever is best will win." Now that's as diplomatic as Preity can get who doesn't want to choose between SRK and Salman, both of whom she is very close to.

    Hottest Dhobi in town
    The hottest Dhobi in town Pratiek Babbar has arrived with his aunt. While he gets to take it easy this year, Pratiek is expecting a lot of nominations next year for his recently released film 'Dhobi Ghat'.

    Another sensational debutante of the year is Shraddha Kapoor along with her mom at the red carpet.

    This girl certainly won't leave her Sabyasachi alone.. Spotted in one is Vidya Balan on the red carpet.

    The Diva of all eras.. Rekha in her patent sari and red lipstick screams panache at the red carpet!

    our Sheila a.k.a Katrina Kaif walks the red carpet this year looking like a dream.

    Ravishing in black.. RaveenaTandon mesmerizes one and all with her charm!

    Hrithik Roshan enters with his beautiful wife Suzanne Roshan. In contrasting colors, both make a smashing pair

    Sonakshi Sinha making the statement in green at the red carpet along with mommy dearest.

    +++y Sam's looking stunning in her beige and green gown! This girl surely knows how to set the night ablaze.

    The +++iest guest on red carpet till now happens to be the bubbly actress Genelia D'Souza. She is wearing a backless purple Versace gown with high slits which is making her look stunning and sensuous. Interestingly Sridevi who is wearing the same coloured gown is looking outstandingly seductive in her new lean avatar.

    It's the first time after marriage that Mrs. Avantika Imran Khan has walked the Filmfare red carpet. The weight loss has worked wonders on the biwi and she is looking gorgeous in a peach dress. However, the lady didn't have hubby dear accompanying her. And no no, Imran Khan isn't giving the Awards night a miss. He will be actually taking centre stage with Ranbir Kapoor as the host of the grand event. The young Khan is already in and has been rehearsing his act with Ranbir.

    Pakistani artist Ali Zafar has arrived on the red carpet along with his beautiful wife. While the singer made his acting debut last year with 'Tere Bin Laden', he is rooting for Ranveer Singh in the Best Debut Actor category. Ranveer Singh made his debut with Yash Raj Film's 'Band Baajaa Baaraat'.

    Shriya Saran has arrived looking pretty as ever. The lady is hoping to have a great time at the Filmfare night. Though she didn't have a Bollywood release in the past year, she is looking forward to Deepa Mehta's Midnights Children in 2011.

    Neha Dhupia has come to the Filmfare Awards after six long years. The actress who is looking hot as ever in a black & grey dress doesn't have any hot arm candy with her this time around. She has walked in with her mother instead, proving her single status! Talking about her fashion tip, Neha says, "I think its best to keep it very simple especially if you know that you'll have to be seated in an auditorium for four long hours."

    It is surprising to see Kalki Koechlin arrive on the red carpet all alone. She made a grand entry last year with boyfriend Anurag Kashyup and certainly Kalki is missing Anurag this year. Expectedly, she is cheering for 'Udaan' produced by Anurag Kashyup, which has received maximum nominations this year. When asked about her plans on this Valentines Day she says, "We both are shooting separately. Nevertheless we will connect through Skype".

    Debutant actress Sandeepa Dhar is looking pretty in her lavender strapless gown. But before she could flaunt her lovely gown on the red carpet some guest stepped on it and the actress lost her balance. Thankfully the 'Iss life Mein...' actress regained her balance in a second. A huge fan of Hrithik Roshan, Sandeepa said, "I am cheering for Hrithik tonight and wish that he wins the award for Guzaarish."

    Dabangg director Abhinav Kashyap has just arrived. The director, who hit the bull's eye with his very first film, is hoping that his film bags a few awards at the most awaited Filmfare Awards night. Talking about the year 2011, Kashyap reveals that he has no release coming up in the coming year but he says, "Wait for 2012. I'll have a release then. I am not sure what kind of film it will be and on what subject. But I'll definitely have a release." Ask him about Dabangg 2 and pat come the reply, "Most definitely, I will be directing the Dabangg sequel."

    While celebs make headway to Yashraj Studios to attend the 56th Idea Filmfare Awards, Shah Rukh Khan and Madhuri Dixit have already reached the venue for a final rehearsal for their special act. Hottie Priyanka Chopra is here too, getting ready to put up a sizzling act.
