Another television channel bites the award bullet. The first Colors Golden Petal Awards, held to honour the artists of various shows aired on the channel, was high on glamour and energy. Bling ruled the red carpet as actors came dressed in outfits of the characters they portray onscreen. Adding Bollywood quotient to the starry evening, that took place on Monday night at Filmcity, was the team of Desi Boyz, minus actor Deepika Padukone.
The event, hosted by filmmaker Sajid Khan, saw performances by various artists from the channel’s shows including Veer-Iccha of Uttran, Sumitra of Balika Vadhu and Sia and Raghav from Naa Aana Is Des Laado and the team of Veer Shivaji.
The khiladi in Akshay Kumar took over as he went on stage and made Uttran’s Nani do stunts that left the audience asking for more. He even made her blow fire from the mouth. Salman Khan performed some dance steps on his popular number, Dhinka Chika, swaying audience with his antics. Child artist Saloni kept the audience in splits with her stand-up act. Sajid insisted Juhi Chawla to sing on stage but the shy actor politely refused.
