Udta Punjab and Neerja were the biggest winners of this year taking away some of the most important trophies while Kapoor & Sons also made its presence felt.

Other nominees in the field included "Armaan Malik" for "Besabriyaan" of "M.S. Dhoni: The Untold Story, ' Arijit Singh for "Channa Mereya" of "Ae Dil Hai Mushkil" and Diljit Dosanjh for 'Ikk Kudi" of 'Udta Punjab'. Aniruddha Roy Chowdhury took home the award for Best Director for his film Pink.
