GUWAHATI: One of the most glamourous cine awards – the Filmfare Awards — will be held in Guwahati on February 15. Tickets ranging from Rs 1,000 to Rs 3 lakh can be availed at Book My Show.
Alia Bhatt, Ayushmann Khurrana, Ranveer Singh and Vicky Kaushal will grace the occasion.
It may be mentioned that the first Filmfare Awards function was held at Mumbai Metro Cinema Hall on March 21 in 1954. Do Bigha Zameen was judged as the best film at the first function. The Filmfare Statuette is generally made of bronze — its height is 46.5 cm and it weighs around five kg.
This is the first time, the grand event will be held outside Mumbai.
The Filmfare Awards are presented annually by The Times Group to honour both artistic and technical excellence of professionals in the Hindi language film industry of India. The Filmfare ceremony is one of the oldest film events in India.
ATDC Chairman Jayanta Malla Barua had earlier said that the sole purpose of holding the Filmfare Awards function in Guwahati is to promote Assam’s huge tourism potential by involving Bollywood. He said since the State will give all logistics to the organizer, the event will highlight Assam as one of the best tourist destinations in India.
