Filmfare Awards 2021 nominations are here, find out which of your favourites have fared and which have failed.

One of the most awaited awards of the year, Filmfare Awards 2021 announced the nominations on Friday.

Quality content was served to the audience through OTT platforms.

The year was a rollercoaster for the industry. However, once the lockdown was lifted they bounced right back! Even with members of the B-Town testing COVID-19 positive, the discouragment did not reflect on the quality of work produced by the fraternity.

'Gulabo Sitabo', 'Gunjan Saxena: The Kargil Girl', Ludo', 'Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior' and 'Thappad' have been nominated for the Best Film category in Filmfare Awards 2021
