While the gorgeous and talented Vidya Balan grabbed the award for the Best Actress for Kahaani, the handsome Ranbir Kapoor swept away the award for the Best Actor for Barfi!. Vicky Donor and Barfi both won 7 awards each in the popular and technical category, with Barfi! winning the award for the Best Movie.
For the first time, Salman Khan hosted an award function and kept his audience glued to the seats with his dazzling presence. Sonakshi Sinha also joined him for a section. Salman apparently was nervous about it and said that he wanted to do this since he has never done it before. “It is a very different thing to host an award function, since you need to remember so much and listen to others as well, without getting carried away. Everyone gets nervous when they do something for the first time, even me,” he said. However, don’t we all know Sallu as the spontaneous entertainer? He was totally the highlight of the evening! Arshad Warsi also complimented him and tweeted,” I had a fabulous time with Salman at the Star Guild Awards. It is always a pleasure interacting with him.”
Actress Priyanka Chopra won the shining star award for her outstanding performance in Barfi! and Agneepath and the lifetime achievement award went to veteran actor Manoj Kumar.
Coming to Television, the award for best non-fictionseries went to ‘Crime Patrol’ while the best ongoing drama fiction was grabbed by the much popular ‘Bade Acche Lagte Hain’.
The evening was studded with starry performances, which included Ayushmann Khurrana and Kunal Roy Kapur’s performance on ‘Dramebaaz’ and ‘Sadi Gali’ while promoting Nautanki Saala. The cast of Mere Dad Ki Maruti Rhea Chakraborty and Saqib Saleem performed on the song ‘Punjabiyan Di Battery’ from their film. Jacqueline Fernandes also gave a stunning performance on Party on My mind and Lat Lag Gayi.
