  3. LOL all the awards shows are crap and fake awards shows,i hate them ,i used to believe in FILMFARE award but from the past 10years it will be known as FILMFAKE awards..shame on bollywood and their awards,,

  4. This award shows are fake bcuz they always give awards to their best actor,for example FILMFARE used to give DILIP Kumar,in 1960 to1980 and SRK from 1990 to 2010 and their best music director is AR REHMAN,they have given him 10awards ,in my opinion he does not deserve single awards bcuz NADEEM SHRAVAN were best music director from 1990 to 2005 but they got only four awards. Shame on all awards
