GIMA 2016 : All has been revealed!

The winners of the sixth Global Indian Music Academy awards have been revealed. Hosted by Ayushmann Khuranna, the awards night began with Dhruv Ghanekar performing the India national anthem on his guitar followed by a stellar performance by the King of Playback Arijit Singh who had the crowd clapping in unison. Sonakshi Sinha surprised the audience with her power packed performance as she performed a hilarious parody on the year’s most popular film songs.

The show kicked off with ‘Bajirao Mastani’ winning the first three awards of Best Background Score, Best Music Arranger & Programmer and Best Engineer awarded to the talented Sanchit Balhara, Sahil-Pritesh and Tanay Gajjar. Director Sanjay Leela Bhansali also won Best Music Director for his film ‘Bajirao Mastani’. The night continued to feature well-deserved wins as Bollywood’s legendary star Amitabh Bachchan won the award for the Song of the Year performed by a Celebrity for the song ‘Atrangi Yarri’ for the film ‘Wazir’. A surprise for the evening was certainly when Yo Yo Honey Singh alongside Sonu Nigam & Bickram Ghosh were tied for Best Pop Song. Arijit Singh certainly had a great night as he was awarded the Wizcraft Honor for Best Live Performer as well as taking away four more categories– MTV GiMA Duet of the year for Airlift song ‘Soch Na Sake’, Most Popular Radio Song of the year, Best Film Song for the runaway hit ‘Gerua’ and Most Streamed Song of the year for ‘Sanam Re’.

The star studded awards night also featured a special heartfelt tribute to Aadesh Shrivastava by legendary actor Amitabh Bachchan and Udit Narayan, Harshdeep Kaur, Lalit Pandit, Sidesh Bhosle and Divya Kumar in the presence of his family. The event will be telecast on Colors this month.
