Filmfare awards were recently held in Guwahati at Assam and was hosted by Karan Johar, VarunDhawan and Vicky Kaushal.

Recently held 65th Amazon Filmfare Awards 2020 has received severe flak from the netizens. The awards function was held at Indira Gandhi Athletic Stadium in Guwahati at Assam. The entire award function was hosted by director-producer Karan Johar alongwith actors Varun Dhawan and Vicky Kaushal. Netizens went berserk after learning that Gully Boy won 13 awards at the Filmfare Awards 2020.

Films Kesari, Super 30, Mission Mangal and Chhichhore were loved by the Indian audience.

On several social media platforms #BoycottFilmfare trended almost for a week. Netizens also pointed out that Amazon Prime had backed Gully Boy as their digital partners and in the same sense were the prime sponsors for the Filmfare award functions. Aamir Khan since long time has continued to boycott award functions and had also announced that no organizers should even send him an invite for such events. Gully Boy overtook Rani Mukherji and Amitabh Bachchan's Black, which was honoured with eleven awards in 2006.

Wikipedia page of Filmfare was vandalized by an angry netizen

An angry netizen even went on to an extent and vandalized Wikipedia page of Filmfare and labelled Gully Boy's awards as paid. Similarly, Manoj Muntashir, lyricist of Teri Mitti from film Kesari announced that Apna Time Ayega got preference over his song Teri Mitti which touched the heart of millions. He said that he will no longer attend any award show till his last breathe. He termed the entire incident as an insult to his art if he continued to care for such award functions.
