Ranveer, Deepika-starrer Bajirao Mastani wins big at Filmfare Awards - Sanjay Leela Bhansali's historical romance drama swept up nine awards, including best actor (male), best director, best film, besides awards in technical categories at the 61st Britannia Filmfare Awards 2015.
Bhansali made his directorial debut in 1996 with 'Khamoshi' which won five Filmfare awards and in 2005 'Black' took home a record 11. Now with 'Bajirao Mastani', Bhansali has virtually grasped the art of making history.
Shoojit Sircar's adorable movie about the connection between motions and emotions 'Piku' came second with five black ladies. The poised Deepika Padukone won best actor (female) for her role of the daughter of an irritable hypochondriac in 'Piku'.
Filmmaker Shoojit Sircar presented the lifetime achievement award to veteran actor Moushumi Chatterjee.
Held at The Dome at Worli's NSCI, the event saw host SRK taking jibes at everyone from censor board Chief Pahlaj Nihalani to 'Piku'.
Additional comic relief was delivered by fellow hosts, the cynical Kapil Sharma and quick-witted Karan Johar.
Salman Khan, the man who can turn mundane activities into legitimate dance steps, made a flamboyant entrance in a silver cage that soared above the audience as the soulful 'Main hoon hero tera' played in the background.
