  1. but our. fake award show will give only to star kids

    I think
    best actor award goes to aamir
    whatever he attend the show or not that doesn't matter
    but send the award to aamir
    best actress vidya balance in kahani
    better than alia bhatt

    but the fake award show will never give award to diljeet who is most talented actor for debut
    instead they will give to anil kapoor hasrshvardhan kapoor
    who don't know ABC of acting Sam expression

    This is fare than bollywood awards
    According to best actor Shah Khan as Gurav character was more than excellent with dialogues.
    Best film Sultan for entering 300 club and for Salman with Anyshka performances .
    Direction of Dangal was amazing, you never feel bore special with old kind of sets and places .
    Other winners also fare than what in bollywood list .
    That's my opinion and I never like any film unless the story not strong and performances .
    My favorite actor is King Khan but be honest I didn't like Fan as I accepted from him . But the role and acting was outstanding.
    I really enjoyed watching Sultan and Dangal and other films for me was just Ok or bellow that .
    Pardon me , it's only an opinion and my way of liking any movie .

  3. Yes I want to react on this.... And my reaction is hahahahaha... Hahahahaha ha.... Now I am very much sure that this site is operating by kidzz.

    1. Dear Amit
      Give us your comments if you think the list I made is not fare and this kids site as you said .
      Logically do you think kapoor and sons deserved to be film of year against the biggest films like Sultan and Dangal .
      Also Manoj best actor against the fantastic performances like Salman , Amir , Shah Rukh and even Akshay that I think he deserved than him by his acting in Rustom and also Airleft .
      Sorry bro but what I mentioned logical than the bollywood list .
      One last thing , every one has a favorite actor but the movie figures and performances decide the best .
