02. 52nd Filmfare Awards
This year the Filmare Awards was completely revamped and transformed into a very formal black tie event with pre-recorded performances. The show took place at Yash Raj Studios and only people of the film fraternity were allowed in with an invite; media was restricted to the red carpet. It clearly was a very glamourous event as everyone showed up looking their best with excitement flashing on their faces. The show was hosted by Shahrukh Khan, Juhi Chawla, Karan Johar and Preity Zinta and they did more or less a fairly average job. Lookwise the show was indeed a pleasant change but entertainment value wise the show felt short, everything was a bit too technical and rehearsed. Nevertheless, the show pulled together some fabulous performances and all in all looked like an enjoyable night for the stars.
