In a scintillating evening of glamour and style, the 57th Idea Filmfare Awards 2011 saw almost the entire tinsel town gathered at the Reliance Media Works Studio to recognised and honour the best of Bollywood in 2011.
The rather unusual male duo Shahrukh Khan and Ranbir Kapoor supported by filmmaker Karan Johar, Pakistani musician and actor Ali Zafar and former Miss India Ankita Shorey charmed the audience with their amusing and witty jokes as they took over to hosting the much acclaimed event.
