The event also saw Bollywood’s biggest names entertaining the audience of Madrid. Shahid Kapoor and Farhan Akhtar played the best hosts, Deepika Padukone, Sonakshi Sinha and Priyanka Chopra gave scintillating performances whereas the male brigade with Salman Khan, Hrithik Roshan and Tiger Shroff set the stage on fire with their energy.

As Priyanka won the Women of the Year award, she insisted her mother to join her on stage. However, Madhu Chopra wanted Priyanka to enjoy the moment by herself. Anil Kapoor, who won the award for best supporting actor for Dil Dhadkhne Do, said, “I would like to thank three people for this award and they are Zoya, Zoya and Zoya.”

Sanjay Leela Bhansali, after winning the Best Director award said, “I don’t want to thank god or my actors or my technicians and thank you is a very small word for what they have done for me.”

A special mention is in order for Ranveer Singh. He kept the place in splits as he screamed like a fan girl when he spotting Fawad Khan and wished Arjun Kapoor who celebrated his birthday last night. He scared Karan Johar that he will kiss him (remember AIB roast?) and danced with Sonakshi Sinha while shooting a video.

Ranveer made sure everyone had fun at the green-carpet event.
