The extravaganza is all set to deliver yet another memorable night of entertainment with the king of hearts Shah Rukh Khan hosting the event.

Speaking on this auspicious occasion, Lamba – CEO, Worldwide Media said, "We are happy to announce the latest edition of 63rd Jio Filmfare Awards 2018. Last year, Filmfare took few big steps in strengthening its foothold and expand its reach on the digital platform with strategic associations with Facebook, twitter etc. This year as well, we aim to set a new benchmark by reaching out to our patrons using television as well as digital platforms. We are also delighted to announce Colors as our exclusive television partners. We promise to continue to offer the best in entertainment awards and bring Bollywood’s biggest stars under one roof for the celebration of the best of Hindi cinema in the year gone by.

When I was growing up in Delhi, I used to watch Filmfare in bits and pieces on Doordarshan and since then I had this desire of being at a place where people shower me with love. The feeling of watching the stars receive the Black Lady was overwhelming and enticing and I hoped to be there some day. As the years have gone by my desire has still remained the same. I have always been associated with Filmfare in some way or the other and there is no reason to not be on Filmfare.”
