2012 saw many entertaining and powerful films surfacing from Bollywood, which have acquired both critical and commercial recognition. A number of them have now been nominated for the prestigious Filmfare Awards, which are considered to be Bollywood’s equivalent to the Oscars. It feels like only yesterday that the last Filmfare Awards took place!
This year is very, very special, since 2013 marks 100 years of Indian cinema. Filmfare are aware of this and have ensured that this year’s award trophies are in gold in order to mark this once in a lifetime occasion. Some of the films which have garnered nominations thoroughly deserve it and we hope that they will go onto win big at the 58th ceremony, which officially takes place at Yash Raj Films Studios on 20th January 2013.
Bollyspice would like to congratulate all the nominees, whose hard work and determination to entertain the audiences has secured them a Filmfare nomination.
