Another awards ceremony that honours the stars and their talent in bollywood was witnessed on 7 May, Sunday. The Sabsey Favourite Kaun Awards is a viewer’s choice award where voters from India and around the globe select their favourite stars. The function was held at a suburban hotel in Mumbai. A bevy of bollywood beauties and hunks dazzled and strutted their stuff.
There were a variety of categories, Sabsey Favourite Hero category saw the Khans-Salman and Shahrukh Khan battle it out, with finally Shahrukh Khan winning the award by a small margin. The dazzling Bengali beauty Rani Mukherjee won the Sabsey Favourite Heroine Award hands down. Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Black won the Sabsey Favourite Film. The Sabsey Favourite Naya Hero and Heroine went to Kunal Kapoor and Vidya Balan respectively. It was a hat trick for Paresh Rawal when he won the Sabsey Favourite Comic Hero Award for the third time consecutively. For the Sabsey Tez (fast) Sitara Award, Abhishek Bachchan and John Abraham competed with each other, but finally John won the award.

The event saw the usual razzle dazzle of a bollywood awards ceremony. Present at the event was bollywood beauty Rani Mukherjee who looked absolutely dazzling in a maroon outfit. Sanjay Leela Bhansali was spotted in his usual trademark black attire with mother, Leela for company. Pretty mommy and actress Sonali Bendre and husband Goldie Behl were spotted after a long time at the function. From the younger lot actress Amrita Arora was seen in tow with brother-in-law Arbaaz Khan. Dino Morea chatted with Karan Johar who was dressed in a dapper black suit. Upen Patel was seen mixing around with the crowds. Actor Arshad Warsi attended the awards ceremony with wife Maria Goretti.

Kunal Kapoor looked dashing in a brown jacket and corduroy pants and was complete eye candy for pretty young gals. Ayesha Takia opted for an all black ensemble with a broad waist belt, a touch of Victorian. Vidya Balan looked pristine in a white get up with an equally dazzling smile to go with it. New girl on the block Tanushree Dutta made her presence felt dressed in casual attire and a bespectacled look. Rang De Basanti director attended the awards still glowing in the aftermath of his success in RDB. The crowds went wild with performances from Hrithik Roshan who was in complete dance form, Fardeen Khan and newcomer Kunal Khemu. Director Mahesh Bhatt seemed to be all praises for his protégé Kunal Khemu’s performance.

Besides the performances another happening that was clearly visible to one and all was the animosity seen between x-couple Amrita Arora and Upen Patel. The two completely ignored each other and refused to be even cordial with each other. An incident which further highlighted their dislike for each other was seen when the two happened to leave the event together. Amrita was leaving with Arbaaz and Upen was also leaving with another group. Arbaaz and Upen began to chat while waiting for their cars, but Amrita remained aloof. When photographers requested her to join the two for pictures, she simply point blankly refused and stormed off towards her car. When contacted Amrita says “May be I did and May be I didn’t refuse to pose for pictures with him. It’s true that Upen and I don’t acknowledge each other at social events after our break up. I was on the phone at the time and may be my response was taken for a no.” When Upen was asked of he socialized with Amrita at social events he curtly replied “I m not interested in talking about it. And whether I am with friendly with her family or not is none of anybody else’s business.” The award ceremony held on a summery starry night was filled with a good dose of glamour and glitter.

The event will be telecast on 14 May on Star Gold.
