Bollywood’s most acclaimed award show, Filmfare Awards 2017 shocked the entertainment fraternity of both India and Pakistan by nominating Fawad Khan, Atif Aslam, Rahat Fateh Ali Khan and Qurut-ul-Ain Baloch despite the ban on Pakistani artists but as it is said Art is beyond borders.
Four Pakistani stars made it to the nominations list of 2017 but none of them were awarded at the event which held last night. Fawad Khan couldn’t bag his second Filmfare award for Kapoor & Sons, since his co-star Rishi Kapoor won it in the Best Actor In A Supporting Role category. Fawad Khan was awarded as Best Debut Male in FilmFare 2014 and he even bagged the Diversity Award at the 2016 Indian Film Festival of Melbourne.
Qurat ul Ain Balouch lost out to Neha Bhasin, who was the singer of ‘Jag Ghoomeya’, in the Best Playback Singer (Female) category.
Rahat Fateh Ali Khan and Atif Aslam were nominated in the Best Playback Singer Male Category but the award was won by Arijit Singh for Ae Dil Hai Muskil. Both Atif and Rahat have been nominated several times earlier too and this time turned out to be like every other one.
