The third edition of the Lux Golden Rose Awards was a star-studded affair as the who’s who of Bollywood took centre stage and celebrated each other. In order to extend support to the UN’s #HeForShe movement which stands for equality, the actors joined hands for the night and encouraged each other.
Celebrities like Shah Rukh Khan, Karan Johar, Akshay Kumar, Varun Dhawan, Taapsee Pannu, Alia Bhatt, Janhvi Kapoor, Kajol, Hema Malini, Rekha and Zeenat Aman marked their presence at the event. Alia Bhatt, who was awarded the Lux Golden Rose Unstoppable Beauty Of The Year, said, “My childhood dream of becoming an actor came true because of a lot of special people, without whom I would not have been unstoppable.”
Rekha, who was honoured with the title of ‘Legendary Beauty,’ had some words of inspiration for the listeners as she said, “I have always believed that beauty comes from within. Thank you all for loving me and instilling this beauty in me which will live on forever.”
While Shah Rukh Khan thanked his female co-stars for making him a better actor and human being, Kareena Kapoor Khan paid a dance tribute to her male co-stars by grooving to their hit numbers. Kareena also won Lux Golden Rose Confident Beauty Of The Year award, upon receiving which she thanked her girl team of Shikha Talsania and Swara Bhasker. “Receiving an award is always special. It is even better now since I am sharing the stage with my favorite girls (Shikha and Swara). I want to thank Rhea for making this fantastic film (Veere Di Wedding),” said the actor.
