Of the many epic encounters, none was more special than this Silsila of Jaya Bachchan and Rekha hugging each other during the show. Dressed in silk and diamonds, with gajras to match, the actresses were photographed exchanging pleasantries, no visible sign of their reported one-time rivalry. Rekha and Big B were co-stars in many hit films and their rumoured romance forms a part of Bollywood folklore. The affair reportedly came to an end with 1981's Silsila and Big B and Rekha never acknowledged each other in public for 33 years till 2014's Screen Awards where he famously greeted her with a namaste.

Seemingly oblivious to their surroundings, were rumoured couple Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone. They were photographed having a good time, he looking dashing in a suit, she ravishing in a white crop top and billowing skirt.
Another celluloid-worthy moment was when actors Amitabh Bachchan and Ranveer Singh embraced each other after their Best Actor double whammy. An ecstatic Big B shared a picture on Twitter soon after the ceremony.

Ranveer followed suit with one of his own:
Deepika, who won Best Actress for Piku, engulfed Rekha in a hug soon after.
Ranveer and Akshay burnt the floor as they danced with full abandon off the stage, leaving the audience in splits.

Also invited were actors Deepti Naval, Jackie Shroff, Gulshan Grover, Tusshar Kapoor, Ramesh Sippy and his wife Kiran Juneja.
