Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, theatres remained shut and the digital entertainment platforms experienced a boom. With shows and films releasing on OTT, the demand for good content allowed makers to introduce the audience to the best of actors and actresses. Owing to this, Filmfare hosted its first-ever OTT awards in 2020. From veterans like Manoj Bajpayee to young talents like Tripti Dimri, celebrities and good shows and films were honoured.
Now, Filmfare has released the digital edition of their magazine for January 2021. On the cover are Tripti, Manoj, Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Jaideep Ahlawat and Priya Mani. While the men are looking handsome and dapper in formal suits, Priya Mani stunned in a saree while Tripti opted for a lovely gown.
