Gotta admit, we love ourselves a good award night! Apart from the fact that talent is valued and applauded, celebrities turn up looking like million bucks and let's just say we like the lustre behind it all. Be it high-slit gowns or dapper dudes in tuxedos, red-carpet slaying is a legit thing now and we are all here for it. Case in point, the Dadasaheb Phalke Excellence Awards 2019 which is happening tonight as we speak. The gala is hosted to celebrate the 150th birth anniversary of the cinematic legend, after whom the awards are named, and that's the cue for the cameras.
That and the many celebs, the who's who of B-town who have are attending the awards. Needless to say, it is starry already with names like Kajol, Janhvi Kapoor, Ishaan Khatter, Aparshakti Khurana, Aditi Rao Hydari, Pranutan Bahl and many more.
