A one-of-its-kind initiative, the Bhaskar Bollywood Awards are proving to be truly unique, as the voters are in the process of deciding the real superstars of India.
What’s unique about these awards is the fact that people have been granted the supreme power to decide the Czars of Bollywood. Those who are voting are getting points for voting and sharing through social media. And 10 lucky winners from among these voters will actually get a chance of a lifetime, that of handing over the coveted trophy to their most favourite superstars!
Voters have cast their votes in two stages. First, they selected the nominations they wanted in different categories. Now, they are choosing the winners from the list of nominees in each category.
The final nominees for the various categories of Bhaskar Bollywood Awards are: Sabse Badaa Entertainer-Dabangg, Band Baaja Baaraat, Ready, Golmaal 3 and Once Upon A Time in Mumbaai. Abhineta No. 1- Ajay Devgn, Salman Khan, Aamir Khan, Hrithik Roshan and Sunny Deol. Abhinetri No. 1- Anushka Sharma, Katrina Kaif, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Sonakshi Sinha and Priyanka Chopra.
The other categories for which voting is underway include Jodi No 1, Estilo Fresh Talent of the Year, Gana No. 1, Bole-Toh-Jhakaas, Film Zara Hatke, Dhamakedar Item and Top Ka Character.
Apart from these, there is also an option to select the biggest star in two special categories – Grab a Headline and Filmi Chakkar. The complete list of nominations for all the categories can be found on www.dainikbhaskar.com.
During the second stage of voting for the awards that began August 01 2011, voters started pouring in vast numbers to vote for their ultimate choice from within the final nominations. The winners will be decided after the completion of the whole process, solely on the basis of what is chosen through online voting.
