“Kyun Ki… Picture Abhi Baaki Hai Mere Dost”: This iconic dialogue echoed through the minds of cinephiles across the country as a collective sentiment as 2023 witnessed a celebration of Hindi cinema. From the grandeur of blockbuster commercial entertainers like Pathaan, Gadar 2, Rocky Aur Rani Kii Prem Kahaani, and Animal to the nuanced brilliance of critically acclaimed films such as 12th Fail, Mrs Chatterjee vs. Norway, Bheed, Joram, and Zwigato, among others, the Hindi film industry struck a harmonious chord with the audience, rekindling the magic of storytelling on the silver screen.
In a testament to cinematic excellence, the stage is set for the 69th Hyundai Filmfare Awards 2024 with Gujarat Tourism as the Black Lady gears up to honour the gems of 2023. This significant event, embarking on a new journey, is set to unfold on January 28, 2024, in Gujarat, adding a fresh chapter to the prestigious legacy of Filmfare. In anticipation of the star-studded awards night, Filmfare is placing the power in the hands of the audience—the heartbeat of cinema—by opening the voting lines for its 69th edition.
In this edition, once again, fans can cast a vote for their favourite performers, directors, and films from 2023. All they have to do to extend their support is go to the official website of Filmfare, So, let the countdown to the country’s most significant awards ceremony begin. The voting lines are open from January 1, 2024, until January 7, 2024.
Sharing thoughts on this announcement, a representative of Filmfare expressed, “The Hindi film industry has had a dream run at the box office in 2023 with a swarm of blockbuster hits. This year, especially, has been truly special for cinephiles as it witnessed two big releases from Shah Rukh Khan and had Ranbir Kapoor and Sunny Deol give the biggest hits of their respective careers. It marked the comeback of filmmakers like Karan Johar, Vidhu Vinod Chopra, and Anil Sharma to the director’s chair after many years and also witnessed the increase of footfalls in theatres after the slump created by COVID. So, the celebration leading to such an eventful year in Hindi cinema also needs to be extra special, and what better platform than Filmfare to honour the unrivalled talent in the industry? Filmfare has been a benchmark of cinematic brilliance in Hindi cinema for over six decades. As we gear up for the 69th Filmfare Awards, we strive to continue that legacy by inviting fans to vote for their favourites by shedding light on performances and narratives that etched a special place in their hearts in 2023.”
