Phalke Awards 2011: Mix Up, Chaos And Dadasaheb Ignorance!

Awards and honours… and a whole lot of muddles, gaffes and confusion to boot! That would perhaps,aptly sum up the proceedings at the Dadasaheb Phalke Academy Awards 2011 event held on May 3, 2011 and convened at Bhaidas Hall in suburban Mumbai.

The anchor deserved mention of a different sort (in unmentionable terms, that is). He declared Ranveer Singh to be Ranveer Kapoor (poor bloke and his gray cell deficit… got all mixed up between Singh and Ranbir Kapoor) And what's better, there was Anushka Sharma right alongside him onstage. For the uninitiated, Sharma was the reported love interest of Singh, and the liaison that was forged during the filming of 'Band Baaja Baaraat' hit Splitsville a while later.

Furthermore, the mediavine had gone into overdrive that Anuskha Sharma had the real hot (ttt) s for the Kapoor scion… and that Ranbir had lost little time in reciprocating the interest shown in him by Sharma.

Asha Parekh, winner of the 'Legendary Icon Actress' Award, handed over the honours to the winners… and discovered that the trophies had been mixed up!

"It's not a rarity in this award ceremony, getting the awards and names mixed up, not to mention the other hiccups that happen," asserted a journalist on grounds of anonymity. "It happens every year and they usually make a big mess of it."

A bigger boo boo was to unfold soon. Arbaaz Khan, Ranveer Singh and Anushka Sharma were asked what 'Dadasaheb's real name was. And not too surprisingly, all the three flunked on that one!

May the cinematic soul of Dhundiraj Govind Phalke… more famed as Dadasaheb Phalke… rest in peace…
