The film starred Ranveer as Murad, a slum boy aspiring to be a rap artist, dreams in his eyes and poetry in his heart, while Alia as Safeena was the anchor that steered the ship of Murad’s dreams.
Director and writer Zoya Akhtar and Reema Kagti accomplished a beautiful job in portraying the raw human emotions, and we could see it come alive again on the stages of the 65th Filmfare Awards.
The 65th Filmfare Awards was a night full of glamour and glitz and entertainment. It acknowledged all the talented individuals dedicated to their craft of creating better films and nailing it completely.
The event was held in Sarusajai Stadium in Guwahati, Assam, for the first time, attended by a bevy of Bollywood stars. Filmmaker Karan Johar and actor Vicky Kaushal hosted the event.
Gully Boy swept away 13 awards, and Ranveer sharing the achievement justly wrote on his Instagram, “Boht hard.”
It was an absolute emphatic win for Ranveer Singh, nailing it as Murad, he took home the black lady as the Best Actor In A Leading Role (Male). And he was at the cloud nine when he received his trophy from ‘one of the greats,’ ‘legend of the silver screen’ and ‘the one and only,’ Madhuri Dixit.
Ranveer shared the extraordinary moment on Instagram with the caption: “A very special moment that I’ll never forget. Receiving the Filmfare Best Actor trophy from one of the greats. Legend of the silver screen. The one and only, Madhuri Dixit. Etched in my heart forever.”
As Ranveer grabbed the Best Actor Award, Alia took home the Best Actress award for Gully Boy. Siddhant Chaturvedi and Amruta Subhash received the Best Supporting Actor and Actress respectively for the same film. Directed by Zoya Akhtar, the movie also fetched her Best Director and Best Film awards on a victorious night.
