Shakti…Astitva Ke Ehsaas Kii sweeps five awards at 5th COLORS Golden Petal Awards

A transgender’s struggle for her identity, the trials and tribulations of a misunderstood God, making ‘Indiawale’ the true heroes of the country and introducing an app-based LIVE singing reality show. This is just a fraction of the different narratives unleashed by COLORS in 2016 which have received strong audience support. The leading Hindi General Entertainment Channel has, over the past year, unlocked entertainment avenues through its path-breaking line-up of fiction and non-fiction offerings. And honoring the outstanding talent across genres, COLORS today celebrated the 5th COLORS Golden Petal Awards in a star-studded event.

The evening was hosted by comical geniuses Farah Khan and Karan Johar, who were joined by Raghav Juyal and Rubina Dilaik.

And, Diljit’s fellow Rising Star expert Monali Thakur grooved with some handsome hunks as they performed to remix songs. The lip syncing face-off between the judges Jacqueline Fernandez, Karan Johar, Ganesh Hedge and Malaika Arora proved to be the ultimate battle which raised the overall hotness quotient of the night. The night also witnessed the never-ending battle between Indian television’s two favourite Naagins, Mouni Roy and Adaa Khan as they performed to blazing hot numbers like ‘Laila Main Laila’ and ‘Tu Cheez Badi mast mast’.
