Mumbai: The recognisable bracelet hung as its well-known owner turned on the lamp. Salman Khan teased what the public may anticipate from him as the host of the forthcoming awards ceremony during an event announcing that the 68th Hyundai Filmfare Awards 2023 with Maharashtra Tourism will be held at Jio Global Convention Centre in Mumbai on April 27.
As the guy who requires no introduction casually lay aside the card showing his name onstage, paced the floor, and addressed questions with his customary humour and candour, many cellphones in the audience went off. He responded, “They are all really good, but the five of us – myself, Aamir, Shah Rukh, Akshay and Ajay – are here to stay,” when questioned about the most promising next-gen actor.
In the wake of his film “Maine Pyaar Kiya,” the actor, who had previously won the Black Lady for his supporting performance in “Kuch Kuch Hota Hai” in 1999, promised a night of nonstop entertainment.
The editor of Filmfare assured that the occasion will be a “star-spangled night” with a variety of performances ranging from actors Jacqueline Fernandez and Janhvi Kapoor to Tiger Shroff and Vicky Kaushal after admitting that Khan terrified him as an interview-starved rookie reporter. The ceremony will be co-hosted by Maniesh Paul and Khan.
The association with the Filmfare Awards significantly benefits Maharashtra’s tourism industry by showcasing its scenic attractions, cultural heritage, and diverse experiences to a large Indian and international audience, according to Mangal Prabhat Lodha, minister of tourism for the state of Maharashtra.
“The centre of Bollywood is in Mumbai. The decision by Maharashtra Tourism to promote Filmfare makes me happy “Deepak Lamba, CEO of Global Media, remarked.
Hyundai Motor India’s chief operating officer, Tarun Garg, stated that Filmfare provided a significant platform for the automaker to interact with young people and “serve as an agent of positive change.” Garg said, marvelling at the renowned Black Lady’s six-decade journey: “All of the nominees luck. The distinguished and attractive Black Lady may be driven home by the best.”
The event will appear on Colors on April 28 at 9 p.m., according to Lamba.
Lamba and Khan spoke on the development of the entertainment sector across platforms, the importance of self-regulation for the online video industry, and how Mumbai is the centre for the production of Hindi movies.
As Khan said, “I look forward to delighting the audiences as the presenter for this year’s Filmfare Awards,” he stole the stage. Khan has captivated audiences with his movies over the years.
