And last night was no different. At an awards show, after winning Best Actor for her spectacular performance in Raazi, Alia had some loving words for Ranbir in her thank-you speech. She said, “Meghna [Director Meghna Gulzar], for me, ‘Raazi’ is you, your blood and sweat. You are my main chick. Vicky [Kaushal], without you, the film wouldnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t be complete. Thank you, my mentor, Karan for being my mentor, father and my fashion police. Tonight is all about love; there, my special one, I love you Ranbir.”
At another awards show last week, Ranbir and Alia delighted fans by sharing a close and romantic dance.

The two are going steady, and there is much speculation about them tying the knot soon. However, both have dismissed these reports.
Filmfare AwardsÃ‚Â Trivia
Every year one of the most coveted Indian film awards, Filmfare Awards, which is even likened to the Oscars, honours the best of Bollywood. But, did you know that singer Lata Mangeshkar’s Filmfare Award trophy had to be wrapped in a handkerchief to be presented to her? Did you know that Dharmendra, Akshay Kumar and Salman Khan have never won a Best Actor award?
Well, all this and much more, take a look at some interesting Filmfare Awards trivia. If you are a true-blue Bollywood buff, then you wouldn’t want to miss out on this.
Filmfare Awards were originally called ‘The Clares Awards’, after Clare Mendonca, the Times of India film critic who died the year of the first awards, 1954.
Hollywood star Gregory Peck was invited to be the guest of honour at the first ever awards on 21 March 1954, at the Metro theatre, Mumbai. While he was unable to attend the award function, he attended the banquet that followed the award night.
Only 5 awards were presented in 1954, the year when the first Filmfare Awards was held. The categories were – Best Film, Best Director, Best Actor, Best Actor (Female), and Best Music Director. The film to be awarded the first Best Film Award was Bimal RoyÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Ã¢â‚¬ËœDo Bigha ZaminÃ¢â‚¬â„¢.
Filmmaker Bimal Roy has won the most number of awards in the Best Director category – 7 awards. He won the awards for Ã¢â‚¬ËœDo Bigha ZameenÃ¢â‚¬â„¢, Ã¢â‚¬ËœParineetaÃ¢â‚¬â„¢, Ã¢â‚¬ËœBiraj BahuÃ¢â‚¬â„¢, Ã¢â‚¬ËœMadhumatiÃ¢â‚¬â„¢, Ã¢â‚¬ËœSujataÃ¢â‚¬â„¢, Ã¢â‚¬ËœParakhÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ and Ã¢â‚¬ËœBandiniÃ¢â‚¬â„¢.
Ã¢â‚¬ËœBlackÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ (2005) has won the maximum number of Filmfare awards in a single year. It won 11 awards. The categories it won under were – the Best Film, Best Director, Best Actor, Best Actress, Critics Award Best Movie, Best Actor (Critics’ Choice), Best Actress (Critics’ Choice), Best Supporting Actress, Best Editing, Best Cinematography and Best Background Score.
It is followed by Ã¢â‚¬ËœDilwale Dulhania Le JayengeÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ and Ã¢â‚¬ËœDevdasÃ¢â‚¬â„¢, both of which have won 10 awards each.
Shah Rukh Khan has won 14 Filmfare Awards so far; out of which, 8 are in the Best Actor category.
In the best actor category, SRK is tied with veteran thespian Dilip Kumar, who too has 8 Best Actor awards. This is followed by Amitabh Bachchan who has won 5 awards in this category.
Actors like Dilip Kumar, Shah Rukh Khan, Amitabh Bachchan and many more boast of multiple wins at Filmfare. But, there are quite a few well-known names who have not even a single Filmfare award to their name. Akshay Kumar, Govinda, Saif Ali Khan and Salman Khan have never won a Filmfare Best Actor award.Ã‚Â
Veteran actors like Dharmendra, Shashi Kapoor, Jeetendra and Vinod Khanna have been honoured with Filmfare Lifetime Achievement awards but they have never lifted a Best Actor trophy.
Actor Shatrughan Sinha has never won a Filmfare Award in any category so far.
Nutan and her niece Kajol both hold the joint record for the highest number of awards in the Best Actress category Ã¢â‚¬â€œ 5 each.
Gulzar has won a total of 11 Best Lyricist awards, which is the highest so far in the category.
In 2001, both Kapoor sisters – Karisma and Kareena – were nominated in the Best Actress category. While Karisma was nominated for Ã¢â‚¬ËœZubeidaaÃ¢â‚¬â„¢, her younger sister was nominated for Ã¢â‚¬ËœAshokaÃ¢â‚¬â„¢.
Even in the Best Supporting Actress category, only once have siblings been nominated during the same year – Ratna Pathak (for ‘Golmaal 3’) and Supriya Pathak (for ‘Khichdi: The Movie) in 2010.
Singer Lata Mangeshkar refused to accept her first Filmfare Award as the statuette was designed in the shape of a woman who had no clothes on. The trophy was finally wrapped in a handkerchief and presented to her.
Actress Vyjayanthimala won Best Supporting Actress award for Bimal Roy’s ‘Devdas’ (1955), but she refused to accept the award. The actress believed that she was the lead actress of the film, and not a supporting one.
Citing the same reason, even Reena Roy had refused to accept the Best Supporting Actress Award for ‘Apnapan’ (1977).
In 1972, Pran refused to accept the Filmfare Best Supporting Actor award for Ã¢â‚¬ËœBeimaanÃ¢â‚¬â„¢. But his reasons were very different from those given by the ladies before. Pran believed that the music of Ã¢â‚¬ËœPakeezahÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ was much better than the background score of Ã¢â‚¬ËœBeimaanÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ which actually won the award in the category. And, therefore, he refused to accept the award for ‘Beimaan’.
In 1975, Yash Chopra’s Ã¢â‚¬ËœDeewaarÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ won almost all the awards at the 23rd Filmfare Awards except, surprisingly, for the lead actor Amitabh Bachchan and the supporting actress Nirupa Roy.
In 1975, Ã¢â‚¬ËœSholayÃ¢â‚¬â„¢, surprisingly, picked up only the Best Editing award at the 23rd Filmfare Awards. It was years later in 2005 that Ã¢â‚¬ËœSholayÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ won the Filmfare Best Film of 50 Years Award.
Sai Paranjpye was the first woman to have ever won the Best Director award. She won it for Ã¢â‚¬ËœSparshÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ (1985). Other woman director who has won this award, so far, is Zoya Akhtar for Ã¢â‚¬ËœZindagi Na Milegi DobaraÃ¢â‚¬â„¢.
In 1962, only one actress was nominated in the Best Actress category for three different films – Meena Kumari. She was nominated for Ã¢â‚¬ËœSahib Bibi Aur GhulamÃ¢â‚¬â„¢, Ã¢â‚¬ËœMain Chup RahungiÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ and Ã¢â‚¬ËœAartiÃ¢â‚¬â„¢. She won the award for her role in ‘Sahib Bibi Aur Ghulam’.
At the 21st Filmfare Awards held in 1974, Dimple Kapadia and Jaya Bachchan shared the Best Actress Award. Dimple won the award for Ã¢â‚¬ËœBobbyÃ¢â‚¬â„¢, and Jaya won it for Ã¢â‚¬ËœAbhimaanÃ¢â‚¬â„¢.
Actress Nutan was the oldest actress to win the Best Actress award at 42 for Ã¢â‚¬ËœMain Tulsi Tere Aangan KiÃ¢â‚¬â„¢.
The youngest actress to win this honour is Dimple Kapadia. She won the award for Ã¢â‚¬ËœBobbyÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ when she was 16 years old.Ã‚Â
Nutan has been nominated in both Best Actress as well as Best Supporting Actress category twice for same film. In 1974, she was nominated for Ã¢â‚¬ËœSaudagarÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ in both the categories, and then once again for Ã¢â‚¬ËœMain Tulsi Tere Aangan KiÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ in 1979.
Other actress to get such an honour has been Raakhee who was nominated in both Best Actress and Best Supporting Actress category for Ã¢â‚¬ËœDoosra AadmiÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ in 1978.
Rani Mukerji is the only actress, so far, who has won awards in both the Best Actress as well as the Best Supporting Actress category in the same year Ã¢â‚¬â€œ for Ã¢â‚¬ËœHum TumÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ and Ã¢â‚¬ËœYuvaÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ respectively.
Saroj Khan was the first recipient of the Best Choreographer Award that was instituted in 1988. She won it for Madhuri DixitÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s hit number Ã¢â‚¬Å“Ek Do TeenÃ¢â‚¬Â from Ã¢â‚¬ËœTezaabÃ¢â‚¬â„¢.
The trend of post-award parties was started by actor Sunil Dutt, who threw a party for Dilip Kumar after he lost the Best Actor trophy in 1969 to the latter.
Actor Kamal Hassan and Vani Ganpathy got married on the day of the 25th Filmfare Award ceremony held in 1978. They attended the ceremony with their wedding garlands around their neck.
“IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m too young to think about it. When I feel thereÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s a need to be in a stronger bond with him, we will come to it. But right now, IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m married to my work and I also have my relationship going well on the side,” Alia had said once.
Ranbir and Alia will share screen space for the first time in Ayan Mukerji’s Brahmastra. The film, which also stars Amitabh Bachchan, Mouni Roy, Nagarjuna Akkineni and Dimple Kapadia, is being made as a fantasy trilogy, the first installment of which is slated to release this Christmas.
