Aamir Khan may have aversion to Bollywood awards and has refused to accept any despite being chosen for innumerable accolades for his path-breaking performances in the past. He was absent from the last night’s Filmfare Awards once again, but that didn’t deter the jury members from bestowing honour on him.

Mt Perfectionist ruled the 62nd Jio Filmfare Awards 2017 as his latest release Dangal emerged the clear winner.

62nd Filmfare Awards

Aamir won the Best Actor award for his memorable character in Dangal, which is smashing all records at the box office. He was pitted against other two Khans namely Salman and Shah Rukh. Dangal was also adjudged the Best Film while Nitesh Tiwari won the Best Director’s prize for the epic film based on wrestling.
