Speaking about Filmfare and Facebook’s association, Deepak Lamba, CEO, Worldwide Media, said, “We are glad to offer today’s digital-first audiences a view of the FIlmfare Awards in an interactive and engaging format through Facebook and Instagram. This longstanding partnership sets the stage for the global fans to come together and get an exclusive view of the performances and accolades that headlined this year’s award ceremony. Following the mandated safety precautions, we shot the performances and held the ceremony behind closed doors, in a safe and private environment.”
Irrfan Khan, who passed away last year, earned a posthumous award for Best Actor in a Leading Role (Male) category for his work in Angrezi Medium. Amitabh Bachchan bagged the Best Actor Critics Award for Gulabo Sitabo. Taapsee Pannu and Tilottama Shome were honoured with the Filmfare Award for Best Actress (Popular) and Filmfare Award for Best Actress (Critics) for their roles in Thappad and Sir respectively.
