From giving us the story of a transgender to breaking up all the myths about the most misunderstood God of Hindu mythology – Shani, and amusing antics of housemates of reality TV show Bigg Boss, Colors TV gave television viewers some good, content-based and entertaining daily soaps last year. And for this, not only the stars but also the entire team, from directors to editors and cinematographers, everyone did their best to rule the TRP charts. So it was time to raise a toast to all their hardwork.
Wednesday saw an evening to recognize and honour the work and talent of these small screen artistes who visit you every day through your television screens. Colors TV hosted the most awaited award ceremony, the 5th Golden Petal Awards. The entire Colors family was under one roof to appreciate and sing praises for their co-stars and colleagues.
Talking about the award ceremony, CEO of Colors TV, Raj Nayak said, “The 5th COLORS Golden Petal Awards recognizes the efforts of every show’s cast and production team, and serves as a motivator urging them to continue to put their best foot forward every day to deliver path breaking entertainment.”

This year the awards were themed around a ‘Snow Wonderland’ and the actors from the film fraternity and television industry looked as if they walked straight out of a fairytale on the red carpet. To increase the excitement of the small screen audience, the programming head of Colors, Manisha Sharma said, “The 5th COLORS Golden Petal Awards will be a treat for the viewers’ sitting at home. Be it jaw-dropping performances by our leads, adrenalin rush-inducing acts, perfectly timed comic moments or a volley of well-deserved awards, this evening had all the makings of a blockbuster.”
