Coming to the other actor who was also honoured, well, it was Janhvi Kapoor who also won an award at the ceremony for her debut film, Dhadak. The starlet looked lovely in a blush pink dress by Reem Acra.
The off-shoulder number was accentuated by gold motifs on it and Kapoor went sans accessories. She rounded out her look with nude make-up and hair coiffed in soft curls.
On the film front, Janhvi will be next seen in Karan Johar’s historical drama Takht. The film will feature an ensemble star cast comprising Ranveer Singh, Kareena Kapoor Khan, Alia Bhatt, Vicky Kaushal, Bhumi Pednekar and Anil Kapoor.
Even Zoya Akhtar was given a special honour. A huge round of applause of all these three talented ladies.
