Filmfare has always been associated with honouring excellence when it comes to the silver screen but this time around, along with its sister magazine Femina, the Filmfare & Femina Bhojpuri Icons honoured both reel and real stars. Some of the big winners of the evening were Sanjay Mishra, who received the prestigious Pride of Bhojpuri Soil Award, Sharda Sinha received the Outstanding Contribution to Music Award, while Ravi Kishan was named Outstanding Performer In OTT and Manoj Tiwari was bestowed with the prestigious Lifetime Achievement Award. Here’s looking at all the winners from the grand event.

PRIDE OF BHOJPURI SOIL 

SANJAY MISHRA

Sanjay Mishra hails from Darbhanga, Bihar. He joined NSD to hone up his acting skills. After making his name in the theatre circuit, he made his entry in Hindi films through the 1995 film Oh Darling! Yeh Hai India!. Later films such as Satya (1998) and Dil Se (1998) brought him prominence. He started getting known for his comic timing thanks to films like Bunty Aur Babli (2005), Apna Sapna Money Money (2006) and the Golmaal series. He’s a brilliant dramatic actor too and has twice won the Filmfare Best Actor Critics’ Award for Ankhon Dekhi (2015) and Vadh (2022).
