Indian cinema stars were out last night as the 2019 Zee Cine Awards took place in Mumbai. Hosted by Kartik Aaryan and Vicky Kaushal, the award show saw Bollywood’s biggest stars attend.

Deepika Padukone, Ranveer Singh, Alia Bhatt, Katrina Kaif and Varun Dhawan were some of the famous faces spotted on the red carpet.

Padukone chose a scarlet red dress (above), while Bhatt wore an embellished Celia Kritharioti gown on the night:

As far as the awards went, Leela Bhansali’s Padmaavat and Rajkumar Hirani’s Sanju were the big winners of the night. Padmaavat tells the story of a fictional 14th-century queen named Padmavati but did stir controversy in India for its historical take, while Sanju is a biographical film based on the life of Bollywood star Sanjay Dutt.

Bhansali won Best Director, Padukone took home Best Actor for her lead role in Padmaavat, and her husband Singh bagged the fan voted Best Actor award for his role in the same film.

Sanju also had a big night as Ranbir Kapoor took home the Best Actor for his portrayal of Sanjay Dutt while Vicky Kaushal also took home Best Supporting Actor.

Other highlights from the evening included Kapoor and Bhatt's romantic dance performance to Ishq Wala Love:
