Zee Cine Awards 2019 was a star-studded affair with several performances and dapper red carpet appearances. Deepika Padukone looked stunning in a red gown while Ranveer Singh chose to complement his wife in a black, floral suit with a bow-tie. Alia Bhatt opted for a floral sequenced gown.


The evening was hosted by Kartik Aaryan and Vicky Kaushal. The young duo put up a humourous show, taking harmless jibes at stars.

While Deepika reigned strong with her Padmaavat performance earning her an award for Best Actress, Sanju star Ranbir Kapoor picked up the award for Best Actor. Debut performances by Dhadak duo Ishaan Khatter and Janhvi Kapoor were acknowledged as well. Sriram Raghavan's Andhadhun won in the Best Actor in Negative Role category, which deservedly went to Tabu. Ayushmann Khurrana's successful year earned him a trophy for Extraordinary Performer of the Year.

Ranveer Singh's moving performance as Sultan Alauddin Khilji in Padmaavat was recognised with a Best Actor (Male) Viewers Choice award. Luka Chuppi star Kartik Aaryan won Best Actor in comic role for the portrayal of a possessive buddy in Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety. Veteran Hema Malini was presented with an award for Extraordinary Contribution to Indian Cinema.

The best supporting actor awards went to Katrina Kaif for Zero and Vicky Kaushal for Sanju. Zero also won the award for Best VFX. Debutant director Amar Kaushik picked up the prize for Best Debut Director for Stree.

As far as performances went, the highlight of the evening was Varun Dhawan and Kiara Advani's joint performance. The couple performed on famous numbers like 'Jeena Jeena' from Badlapur and 'Sun Sathiya' from ABCD 2 among others. Varun then went on to groove to 'High Rated Gabru.'


The actor praised Kiara post the performance and even shared the fact that he performed his solo song 'Firstclass' from Kalank during the evening.


The evening's highlight was an impromptu gig by Alia and Ranbir on-stage, when the couple were seen dancing to 'Ishq Wala Love'.

There were performances by Ayushmann and Kriti Sanon also.

Madhuri Dixit Nene was seen celebrating 25 years of her iconic film Hum Aapke Hain Koun, which is now considered a seminal classic. She performed on the song 'Maye Ni Maye', which has been crooned by Lata Mangeskar. The actress took a trip down the memory lane with her performance and left the audience nostalgic.
