The Filmfare Awards, the equivalent of Hollywood’s Oscars, each year parades a Who’s Who of top Bollywood films and their legendary stars along with new and aspiring actors, actresses, and film directors. The awards was a bit of a disappointment with its gay jokes and storyline , Im sure people dont mind a bit of tom foolery . but when its right in your face and forced on you , it does become a bit uncomfortable. The whole MC presenting script was doctored with gay flavored jokes . which sorta smelt that somebody was runing their own agenda.Karan johar was one of the presentersThis year, all the glamour and excitement at the 54th Filmfare Awards took place in Mumbai on February 28, 2009.
Since its launch in 1952,
has kept audiences up-to-date with the latest news and pictures from the Hindi film scene.
I dont know how did Pratik Babbar got in the nominations for Best Supporting Actor? Kangana Ranaut is extremely beautiful but she was least deserving among the other nominies for the Best Suppoting Actress Award. When there were so many good films in this year, i think Dostana did not deserve to be in nominies for the Best Film Award
"Some people might get a bit of a shock. Because often in the Indian subcontinent region, being gay is taboo. You can be arrested and jailed,” the Sydney Morning Herald quoted.

Another gay scene by both the presenters , we can only guess whose idea was that. Its a pathetic attempt at creativity to show something like this. Then there was a scene with Akthar where he seemed to be a bit uncomfortable with as well. I do recall a very girlish walk by someone at one stage. Best Music
